We are not therapists; we do not offer therapies. However, our expeditions, punctuated by moments of reflection and intervention activities, have indisputable therapeutic benefit. The results of a recent study indicate that the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation therapeutic adventure expeditions have had significant impact on self-esteem and quality of relationships with parents and friends.
In the study, participants and their parents claimed that the expedition experience contributed in large measure to their development of personal identity and autonomy. Further, the fact that they shared similar experiences in an environment conducive to exchange helped greatly to reduce their feelings of isolation.
