dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore how job-related experiences of outdoor education leaders influenced personal health and wellness within and outside the workplace. Guided by an adapted Social Ecological Model (McLeroy, Bibeau, Steckler, & Glance, 1988) and the Six Dimensions of Wellness (Hettler, 1976), five participants who had experience as outdoor education leaders were interviewed. Transcripts of the interviews were analyzed. Five theme clusters emerged from the data: life cycle, relationships, transition, leadership, and health and wellness. This study was an important contribution to the overall outdoor education literature as it provided an opportunity to add the voices of outdoor education leaders to the quantitative literature currently available.en_US
