Rock Climbing Therapy

This is an experiential group that utilizes CBT, and relapse prevention involving group participants using a rock wall as a way to identify personal recovery barriers/challenges and negative thought patterns. The group allows clients to have first hand experiences with emotions such as success, frustration, fear, and accomplishment etc. Which allows the group counselor to explore other areas in the clients life where they can relate these feelings. The goal is to help clients experience a range of emotions and process them in their early recovery without a maladaptive coping skill. Following the team building exercise clients are prompted to share their personal experiences and insights.
