A valuable guide to understanding the role of recreation in the lives of individuals with impairments! This comprehensive, well-illustrated sourcebook offers a practical overview of therapeutic recreation as a profession and as a career choice as it discusses the valuable contribution therapeutic recreation makes to the health care field. Drawing collectively on their experiences as practitioners and educators, the authors effectively combine theory and practice, first, by focusing on the historical and philosophical growth of the profession and second, by introducing readers to the client populations served by therapeutic recreation specialists and the specific application of therapeutic recreation with these individuals. The humanistic approach emphasizes the value of each person regardless of health status or functional capacity. It also incorporates a contemporary service delivery model that reflects current health care terminology and practice while maintaining the scope of service in both clinical and community settings.

Review:

"I love the categorization of topics, especially the breakdown and coverage of the disability areas. The 'study questions' and 'practical experiences to enhance student objectives' at the end of chapters are so helpful in class/assignment planning." --Emily Hayden, Springfield College

"I appreciate the newer pictures throughout the text, the updated e-sources, and the introductory chapters 1-3. The updated version is a refreshing contribution to our curriculum. I also appreciated the term 'intellectual disabilities' in lieu of mental retardation." --Robin Lombardo, St. Joseph's College, Long Island

"I was pleasantly surprised with all of the faculty support material included in the new, Fourth Edition." --Jerry Jordan, Oklahoma State University
