Adventure Therapy Bibliography

This is the bibliography from Peter Weinberg's MA Thesis. References up to year 2000.



I have included Peter's bibliography here (with his permission) because it includes several references that are more recent than those in the research review that I co-authored with Jon Barrett: Why Adventure? (1995). There are also some useful older references below that we missed!

You will find more information about Peter's work at Flying Zen Adventure and his continuing research at http://www.flyingzen.com
