The most significant change in this edition of Leisure Education Program Planning is the infusion of information gleaned from writings by some of the leaders of the positive psychology movement.

These readings provide valuable perspectives and insights about concepts related to leisure and leisure education.

The book is organized into five sections.

The first section contains six chapters designed to increase understanding of principles related to leisure and leisure education.

The second section provides recommendations and research on leisure education, reviewing previous efforts to implement and understand leisure education programs.

The third section provides considerations for developing the content (what to teach) of leisure education.

The fourth section addresses the process (how to teach) of implementing leisure education programs.

The final section of the book contains specific leisure education programs associated with six possible leisure education components (appreciate leisure, be aware of self in leisure, be self-determined in leisure, interact socially, use leisure resources, and make leisure decisions).

The author has field-tested and evaluated various components of these leisure education programs.
