Beneficial Risks is a unique offering in the field of outdoor and experiential education, drawing from theory, research, and lessons learned from the collective experience of leading authors and experts in the field of safety science and outdoor risk management. This book challenges long-standing assumptions and traditional views of risk management, while exploring topics relevant to outdoor programs such as the value of risk, the relationship between mission and risk management, inclusive risk management practices, incident causation models, and the future of risk management for outdoor programs. This book is not about checking boxes or looking good; it is about the hard work, teamwork, and joy associated with running high-quality programs that support risk management.

Beneficial Risks is for the following audiences: outdoor and experiential education professionals, volunteers, or college and university students studying outdoor recreation. Organizations that would be best served by the concepts in this book include colleges, schools with experiential learning programs, outdoor education programs, gap year programs, outdoor guide services and outfitters, service-learning programs, volunteer clubs, wilderness therapy programs, and conservation corps.
