Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of nature-based interventions on physiological and emotional responses in at-risk preadolescent youth. Preliminary results indicate a decrease in resting heart rate and an increase in positive emotional states following the interventions. Inclusion of nature-based activities in OT interventions for at-risk youth can contribute to advancements in occupational justice and engagement for this population.
