75 p. 

Ten papers were selected for inclusion in this proceedings based on each paper's ability to examine critical ethical issues within the field of experiential education and to challenge readers to analyze and justify the stances they support. John Miles examines user impact on wilderness areas and the responsibilities of educational uses of the wilderness. David Cockrell presents strategies for the experiential teaching of environmental ethics. Ed Raiola describes a model for communication and problem solving and shows how it can be used by outdoor leaders. Denise Mitten discusses women's attitudes towards stress and risk in relation to wilderness activities. Karla Henderson and Deborah Bialeschki highlight the benefits of women-only experiences in the outdoors. Richard Kimball summarizes the philosophy and programs of the Santa Fe Mountain Center (NM), which provides experiential therapy to troubled youth referred from corrections and psychiatric facilities. Robert Creal and Nancy Florio describe the development of the Family Wilderness Program and the ethical questions that were raised as part of the development. Homer Page and Marci Carpenter compare the compensation and transcendence perspectives on disability and argue in favor of transcendence. Other papers are "Education as if Nature Mattered: Heeding the Wilderness Within" by Michael Cohen and "Sexual Identity Crisis as a Contributing Cause of Juvenile Delinquency" by Howard Cohen.
