Supported employment employees were randomly assigned to participate in an adventure therapy program designed to enhance self-esteem and facilitate an internal locus of control. Results indicated that persons assigned to the experimental treatment group gained greater self-esteem and a larger shift toward internality than did the control group. These therapeutic effects dissipated over a 1-year period and did not result in improving attendance in supported employment.
