Book Title: Power of One: Using Adventure and Experiential Activities Within One on One Counseling Sessions
Publisher: Wood N Barnes
Author: D. Maurie Lung
This text is an excellent and valuable resource for any therapist/counselor, and fills a large void in the literature related to individual adventure practice. It is easy to use with clear, understandable directions of activities as well as their clinical utility with a variety of treatment modalities. The authors did a great job of tying activity ideas to the diagnostic work and documentation, particularly the DSM connection with treatment goals, matching activities, and treatment notes for each diagnosis. The book's structure is simple enough for providers unfamiliar with adventure work to understand and apply these activities, but deep enough for experienced providers to enrich their practices. The case examples provide a glimpse as to how three master practitioners engage with individuals doing adventure therapy.
