 Inclusive Leisure Services (4th ed.) discusses the importance of including all people in leisure services, offering an educational model for learning about considerations and strategies to promote inclusive leisure services.

Each chapter with an orientation activity including questions to stimulate reflection on the topic. Then the chapter topic is introduced, followed by a rich discussion including examples from research studies and quotes from inside and outside the leisure field. Each chapter ends with final thoughts and discussion questions. Topics include developing an awareness of ethics, inclusion, barriers, and legislation relevant to inclusive leisure services; providing strategies to promote social, psychological, and physical leisure engagement for everyone; culture (e.g., ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation), ability, healthy aging, economic resources, and support; and people, inclusion, and specific disabilities.

This book is based on the author’s own experiences as a person within society and as a leisure service practitioner, his discoveries as a clinician and researcher, his reflections of relevant literature, and his observations of the operative assumptions within the leisure profession.

The author has taught in higher education and also held roles as a researcher and a clinician. He has authored textbooks associated with leisure education, therapeutic recreation facilitation techniques, and inclusive leisure.
