Wilderness Therapy: Ethical Considerations for Mental Health Professionals – As the field of wilderness therapy continues to grow and evolve as a treatment modality, it is important for mental health professionals to consider the unique ethical issues that may arise when therapy moves far beyond the four walls of a therapist’s office. This article raises several relevant ethical issues, including the distinction between therapy and therapeutic experiences, the use of efficacious treatment and aftercare, a continuum of care and family involvement, consent and confidentiality, and therapeutic boundaries. None of the ethical issues discussed have been systematically evaluated in current wilderness therapy research, and so it is currently unclear how programs are—or are not—addressing these ethical challenges.
