Shifts in Attachment Relationships: A Study of Adolescents in Wilderness Therapy: A research paper written by Joanna E. Bettmann in which there were ninety-six participants who attended wilderness therapy programs. The adolescents were evaluated before and after the attendance of their treatment on their relationships with both parents and peers. By the end of the program she found that some of the participants anger levels had decreased and correspondingly their emotional connection to their parents had increased. Her findings raise the question that programs within which the entire family unit is included may have the best chance of improved attachment relationships; at BlueFire this is of course a top priority.
