I'm an final year undergraduate at the University of Sheffield, soon to begin
data collection on a group of adolescents on an outdoor adventure programme. A
1-page overview of what I'm setting out to research is attached.
How can you help? Three things...
A) I lack a measure for the degree of emotional/social support experienced by
participants on therapeutic adventure programmes that comes from instructors
and fellow participants. The wilderdom instruments/measures section has a
notable gap...but is there anything I could use? If not, can you recommend a
related measure from another field, e.g. mainstream education
B) I'd like to see a copy of the ACS before I ask my Uni to spend 100 AU$ on
them, could anyone send me through a copy (we promise to buy them; it will be
departmental funding anyway). Likewise with the 'Characteristics of the
Experience' measure if possible.
C) If you have any guidance/advice on papers to look at or important factors I
haven't considered...that would be great.
