Abstract:
There is a growing body of literature which advocates the psychological benefits of contact with the natural world. The existing literature on therapy in outdoor contexts (Linden and Grut, 2002; Berger, 2006;2007; Berger and McLeod, 2006; Burns, 1998) offers some insight into the practical and therapeutic issues encountered when moving outdoors and ways of working therapeutically in an outdoor natural space. One of the weaknesses of the literature is a limited discussion of how the therapeutic frame is affected by the move outdoors and a thorough discussion of the practice issues encountered when moving outdoors and how these might link to the therapeutic process and relationship.
