Reclaiming the Warrior – Veterans Helping Veterans
Trojan’s Trek is a program which was first run in the North Flinders Ranges of SA in the late 1990s to assist troubled Vietnam veterans return to a normal life.
The objectives of the trek are to develop in the participants through joint and individual challenge:
an understanding of how thoughts and feelings influence behaviour
exposure to various strategies which will bring about positive change
suggested individual responses which are effective in achieving the aim, and
enhance self esteem
Trojan’s Trek is a circuit breaker program in nature. Particpants figuratively undertake a journey, which facilitates new ways of viewing themselves, their colleagues and partners in remote locations while investigating ways to facilitate change. Some of the past trekers have denoted this as a “stocktake of life, feelings and behaviour.”
