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. The stress of a frayed relationship with a child obviously has an impact on parents’ own mental well-being – momentum builds around bad feelings, and healing that relationship becomes ever harder. If wilderness therapy helps teens – and it does – we are confident it will help parents too.

Reflect and reconnect with your unique sense of yourself in your role as a parent.
Venture Mòr are delighted to be able to offer a long weekend of parenting reflection, support and therapeutic thinking offered to anyone who cares for a child.
Perhaps you are faced with behavioural expressions or mental health presentations; perhaps you have lost connection with your child and your relationship is at breaking point; perhaps you are struggling to find support through traditional routes and need the space to think clearly about ways to manage your family’s situation.
Facilitated by trained therapists, adept at working with children, adolescents and families, we invite you to join us to think reflectively about your child’s experience, relating to your own and your wider familial and social systems. We will work dynamically with the challenges of the parents who attend, offering psycho-education and therapeutic reflection, alongside time outdoors to reflect and reconnect with your unique sense of yourself in your role as parent.
Includes two full days and two half days of programme time. The course will take place in Stirling, Central Scotland.
Dates: 19th – 22nd Sep 2019 (Arrive midday Thursday, depart midday Sunday)
Max 14 spaces
Participants will need to arrange their own accommodation and travel. Lunches will be included.
