Wilderness therapy benefits troubled teens, but what about parents?

Positive attitude

At Venture Mòr we have been running wilderness therapy for teens.

Now, we are launching our first course for parents. But most busy ­parents wouldn’t be able to free themselves up for a two-week programme. Instead, we’ve developed an intense four-day course that will run over a long weekend to make it as accessible as possible.

For many, ­family relationships are seen as a part of their difficulties.
