The SALTIE Discovery Program is a unique therapeutic program that combines empirically-based clinical treatment, essential life skills and outdoor survival training, in a highly experiential format.
Designed for participants who struggle to engage in traditional clinical settings, the SALTIE Discovery Program employs a nature based, hands-on approach to learning over the course of 10 intensive sessions, culminating in a full-day hike in a wilderness area. Participants will be challenged and inspired as they learn the five priorities of survival, practice navigating by the sun, learn to identify bush tucker, develop psychological flexibility, discover their resilience, and establish a strong sense of purpose in life.
