Therapeutic Recreation: A Strengths Approach 2nd ed.
The Leisure and Well-Being Model (Carruthers & Hood, 2007; Hood & Carruthers, 2007) applied the concepts and empirical research arising from positive science to the practice of therapeutic recreation. In this book, Lynn Anderson and Linda Heyne extend the Leisure and Well-Being Model to explicitly articulate therapeutic recreation practices that equally and holistically address environmental interventions that allow participants to flourish through leisure.
Students, as well as practitioners, who immerse themselves in this book will be on the cutting edge of positive change in the articulation and delivery of therapeutic recreation services.It is an exciting time to be engaged in therapeutic recreation practice. This book invites you to focus your professional effort on the empowerment of clients, to see them as reservoirs of hidden potential, and to help them shape their environments so that they can realize their full potential. Therapeutic Recreation: A Strengths Approach will be an enormous help to you in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to build your own strengths-based therapeutic recreation practice.
