Research by Dr Kaye Richards and colleagues suggests that raising levels of self-confidence through adventure therapy is a valuable tool in the treatment of women with eating disorders. It also assessed how taking part in an adventure therapy intervention had psychological benefits. Her findings are being presented to the 5th International Adventure Therapy Conference, hosted by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Edinburgh.
