Program description: BaMidbar Wilderness Therapy uses wilderness and adventure-based experiences as a vehicle to promote therapeutic growth of students, in a process guided and directed by a licensed mental health professional. Program activities include back-country travel and wilderness and group living experiences, during which clinical assessment, treatment planning, and clinical interventions take place. Students have individual, group, and family therapy sessions, and participate in activities that foster social growth and positive relationships. The wilderness environment and group living provides a safe and controlled opportunity to apply therapeutic concepts to real-life situations.
At BaMidbar, we believe that there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution. We offer a tailored mix of evidence-based therapies to help each student find their unique path to wellness. Students and therapists develop individualized treatment plans based on each individual’s diagnosis, symptoms, and self-defined goals.
As a Jewish program, BaMidbar meets every student where they are in their unique Jewish journey, and honors the roll Judaism does, or does not, play in their life. As a community, we work with our students to find meaningful spiritual expression that speaks to them on an individual level. Through integration of Jewish metaphor, storytelling, and traditions throughout the program, BaMidbar students explore their personal meaning, values, and purpose through a Jewish lens.
