Facilitation of Therapeutic Recreation Services asks the question, what interventions and programs are therapeutic recreation specialists, regardless of specific setting or client groups or geographic regions, most likely to design, based on their scope of practice? The answers to this question make up the outline for this book and help therapists to improve their systematic application of various techniques and modalities in the practice of therapeutic recreation. Eight introductory chapters explore evidence-based practice, leisure education, selecting programs and activities based on goals and outcomes, planning and leading group activities/group interventions, communication techniques, instructional techniques, counseling techniques, and behavior change strategies. The remaining chapter discuss popular and specific interventions and techniques within therapeutic recreation practice.

Beyond higher education, the authors have professional work experiences in physical medicine and rehabilitation, long-term care, at-risk youth, independent living, and a women’s prison. They have also published numerous articles and made many presentations at state, national, and international levels.
