Group Intensives

A Micro-Immersion Series – For Community Partners

Therapeutic adventure is increasingly recognized by the therapeutic community as a powerful and effective intervention. And, accessing it or providing it can seem like a major obstacle. At PIVOTPoint WNC, our goal is to make it safe and easy to provide therapeutic adventure work.

How it Works

We manage all the logistics. We handle all the gear. We facilitate the groups. We’ll meet up for multiple pre-trip conversations to explore goals, challenges, and perceived obstacles to address.

Depending on the season, we’ll set up dynamic, engaging activities like mountain climbing and whitewater rafting to throw into a steady mix of prescriptive therapeutics to maximize the effectiveness of our time together. This is a team-building experience designed with intentionality and skill. 

Experiences we facilitate:

  • Mountain biking
  • Camping
  • Rafting
  • Rock climbing
  • Paddleboarding
  • Hiking

An Experienced Team

Our experienced team of facilitators debrief throughout the experience, making certain our team is meeting the individual needs of each member of the group. We are cross-referencing an extensive curriculum of experiential groups and activities with your stated goals and desired outcomes; drawing from years of experience facilitating therapeutic groups in various outdoor settings – mental health, behavioral health, wilderness and adventure programming.

We are skilled at maintaining a challenging yet safe environment for you to test drive the practical application of the pro-social skill building in a real-life setting. Each team also includes wilderness safety certification, further assuring the safety of your group.

Comprehensive Insights

We will meet immediately following our time together while the experience is alive and fresh, reviewing observations and your therapeutic goals. We’ll share these debriefs – along with suggested next steps – with everyone involved. That way, you’ll leave not only having shared in this amazing experience, but also with comprehensive insights and reflections on how your group is engaging with the program, relating to themselves and one another, and progressing on goals.
