Question by JAM: Where do I find camps/seminars that help with self confidence and self esteem?
I’ve seen and heard of people who do to these camps or seminars to learn to trust other people by doing certain activities that force you to relinquish control to the other person, or that make you have more confidence in yourself (maybe by walking a high wire or something like that). I want to know what these are called, other than confidence camps, and how I can find some, especially in the Florida area.
I suffer from agoraphobia, which is a mental disorder that makes me have panic attacks when I am in situations that make me feel open or exposed. It has gotten so bad, I haven’t been able to even go grocery shopping in years. I am seeing a psychiatrist, but it has only helped to a point. I feel like I need to do something like this to force myself to drive these panic attacks out of me!!
Any advice on where and how to find these kinds of camps or classes would be so greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance!!

Google “ropes courses”.
Also consider googling “outward bound” and “project adventure”.
Best of luck,
