Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
The Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare (OBH) Council will be well represented at the American Psychological Association’s (APA) annual convention in Washington, DC on August 7 – 10, 2014. APA is the largest scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the country, and it is the largest association of psychologists worldwide.
Multiple scientists from the Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare Research Cooperative (OBHRC) and leaders from OBH Council member Programs will be presenting in a total of four symposiums and two posters sessions. The APA symposiums are a collaborative effort in which multiple participants present their views, research, or experience about a common theme, issue or question. OBHRC’s Research Director (Dr. Mike Gass), former Research Director (Dr. Keith Russell), and research scientists including Dr. Anita Tucker, Dr. Ellen Behrens and Dr. Lee Gillis will present in or chair a symposium this year. OBHC member programs Second Nature Wilderness Programs and RedCliff Ascent will also present original research in a poster presentation and a symposium. These session topics cover outcomes in wilderness therapy programs, the effect of nature in psychological treatment, group interventions, and advances in the field of OBH.
The OBH Council is thrilled to have such representation on the premier stage for psychological and mental health treatment. See below for a listing of the OBH sessions and click here to search the online convention program for specific information.
