Undergrad Taryn Yudaken Published in Service Learning Journal
"Is Wilderness Therapy Effective in Treating Troubled Adolescent Girls?" is the title of a reflective essay by undergraduate student Taryn Yudaken published in the Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community Based Research of the University of Pennsylvania. A a double major in Women and Gender Studies and Communication and Media Studies, Ms. Yudaken worked with community partner Fort Williams Aboretum Project in a service learning and research project that grew out of her own early experience with outdoor activities. As an immigrant to the US, she writes, "Even at what felt like the most chaotic moments, something outside kept me sane. The wilderness was my home, no matter what country I was in."
Ms. Yudaken presented her research at the Spring 2012 Thinking Matters Symposium of Research and Creative Activity, and has been invited also to present at Civic Matters 2013, our annual symposium of commnity-based student learning.
