Case Studies in Therapeutic Recreation is a relatable, easy-to-read text that explains theory and provides opportunities to practice skills needed to become a successful recreational therapist.
The text focuses on problem-based learning using case studies to describe disabilities, diseases, and conditions often seen in recreation therapy practice.
Each case tells the story of a person living with a medical condition or disability. Details are provided about how a recreational therapist might encounter working with or for an individual.
In addition, pertinent questions guide the reader toward a greater knowledge and application of the planning phase of the therapeutic recreation process.
Thirty different case studies set in a variety of therapeutic recreation workplaces give ample opportunity for students to practice their problem-solving skills.
Case Studies in Therapeutic Recreation also describes how to use both the DENT and Rehab-CYCLE Problem-Solving Models. Readers will learn the basic skills needed to conduct research and evaluate their findings as they incorporate this knowledge into evidence-based practice.
With inclusion of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) and evidence-based practice in therapeutic recreation, this textbook allows readers the opportunity to apply information learned throughout their coursework into practice.
