Effective Management in Therapeutic Recreation Service provides theoretical and practical knowledge about the management of therapeutic recreation services in health and human service organizations in North America. It explores management and leadership concepts; reviews operational aspects of management, including technology and research, marketing and advocacy, and financing; and discusses human resources and  service delivery. It ends with a discussion of managing a professional future.

The authors have taught at the higher education level and have served professional organizations such as the American Leisure Academy; the National Academy of Recreational Therapists; the Academy of Leisure Sciences; and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance.

Written for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students as well as practitioners, this book is also intended for the TR specialist who has responsibility for managing direct therapeutic recreation service and the assignment and direction of staff, volunteers, and interns who deliver the service.
