Introduction to Therapeutic Recreation: U.S. and Canadian Perspectives  introduces the role of therapeutic recreation for disadvantaged populations from U.S. and Canadian perspectives.

Most of the literature focuses on the therapeutic recreation (TR) profession as it evolved in the United States, yet this book recognizes the importance of understanding different approaches to therapeutic recreation and of recognizing benefits of other systems. Thus, it offers both a U.S. perspective and a Canadian perspective, allowing for greater understanding of TR and new approaches for solving issues and problems in the field.
