Journey into the Inner Self and Encounter with the Other: Transformation Trails with Militarised Youth of Katorus

Journey into the Inner Self and Encounter with the Other: Transformation Trails with Militarised Youth of Katorus

Various NGO-driven interventions at the grassroots level try to take into account the particular needs of militarized and criminalized youth. This study examines one of those initiatives: the Wilderness Trail and Therapy Project of the National Peace Accord Trust (NPAT). This project begins from the premise that the transformation of trauma is the first step to a peaceful society. It is also based on the experience that militarized youth often refuse conventional counselling methods. The primary aim of this study is to draw a comprehensive picture of the Wilderness Trail and Therapy Project and to assess some of its impacts and challenges.
