Nature Guided Therapy free pdf Whether it is stopping to smell the roses or trekking in the Himalaya, people will commonly turn to nature-based activites for relaxation, often resulting in personal happiness and well being. In this pragmatic guide to nature guided therapy, Dr. Burns points out that the wellness of anyone is based on both the health of the environment and the relationship between that person and his/her environment. This book begins with an evolutionary history of the relationship between humans and their environment. This cross-cultural journey into traditional healing disciplines, such as ethno-medicines, sociobiology and anthropology, explores their concepts of the person-nature relationship. An examination of how clinical data, empirical scientific investigations and anecdotal accounts point to the healing benefits of a balanced relationship with the environment. The author then explores the human senses to examine its mechanical basis, its affect-creating potentials and the ways in which it can be utilised therapeutically. Following this, case histories and step-by-step procedures for utilising nature-guided strategies are presented. Clinical applications of ecotherapy and research in environmental psychology and psychobiology are also included. In "Nature Guided Therapy", the author does not suggest that this approach is necessarily the sole way to work therapeutically- it is adaptable to other theoretical methods that a clinician would utilise in a session. Either way, this approach should help clients to reach their desired goals in the quickest and most effective manner.
