Intensive Programs

Evoke's Intensives are for Individuals, Parents, Couples, and Families. Our Intensives help participants develop awareness about the impact of their history and their present-day challenges and relationships. While these programs are independent of our wilderness therapy programs, they can also be coordinated while a child or young adult is enrolled at Evoke.

Quotes From Participants of the Intensives:

"The Evoke Family Intensive Weekend was a life-changing event. For four days we (husband, wife and son) worked on our personal issues, delved into family of origin connections with behavior, learned communication skills and knocked down the walls we used to hide our deepest selves. The end result was better family communication and a depth of self-knowledge that brought us closer together. We left feeling exhausted and exhilarated. The three of us salute Brad for facilitating this remarkable weekend." - Intensive Participant

I did the Finding You intensive in October. Not a day goes by that I do not think about the experience or reference some 'truth' that I discovered about myself. If anyone is thinking, 'that would be nice, but maybe not for me'.... it is for you. It is like getting six plus months (or more) of therapy in a few days. Intense, yes, hard at times, yes, but fun too! You won't regret it! - Denise Russell Carter
