The problem with wilderness therapy isn’t the lack of qualitative data to prove the effectiveness of the field.
The problem is that it costs on average $30,000 to $60,000 to go through a program.
Outside the 1%, no one can afford that.
Instead of focusing and trying to hush the loon noises and validate the field, maybe we should hyper-focus on creating better access for an incredible experience.
The by-product: Qualitative data follows the quantitative.
