Leisure Education Program Planning (4th ed.) explores principles of leisure and leisure education and examines the research in leisure education. This book also provides considerations for developing the content (what to teach) of leisure education and addresses the process (how to teach) of implementing leisure education programs.
Further, it discusses specific leisure education programs associated with six possible leisure education components (appreciate leisure, be aware of self in leisure, be self-determined in leisure, interact socially, use leisure resources, and make leisure decisions).
