The ATE network evolved from a partnership project of 8 European countries, called “Reaching Further”. For a brief history of the network, read the partnership story at www.adventuretherapy.eu.
Dreams that were made at the end of the partnership project in 2017 for continuing and growing this network of Adventure Therapists in Europe:
“We wish to make AT accessible for everyone, making the methodology recognized as a valuable therapeutic intervention for all kind of target groups. The network can develop AT practices, can help setting standards for adventure therapist’s competences and support research that is lacking in Europe. The ATE network should be sustainable in itself as a network that stays alive beyond the initial partnership. “
The strategic goal of ATE is to create a sustainable network.
Operational goals are:
- Developing our communication platforms (internal and external communication)
- Organizing a GATE (Gathering for AT in Europe) in a continuous way – every 2 years
- Developing projects in cooperation with other European partner organizations
Therefore we want to develop a European “roundtable” where all countries are represented.
