Lessons Learned: An Open Letter to Recreational Therapy Students and Practitioners provides a personalized approach and a fresh, bold guide for students and practitioners in recreational therapy.

The author gives a personal account of his lessons learned in the areas of understanding recreational therapy, approaches to recreational therapy, conceptual foundations of recreational therapy, working with groups, the recreational therapist, techniques for recreational therapists, social psychology and recreational therapy, and what to do and not to do as a recreational therapist. The book is full of tips and advice, and it raises issues that will help to guide practice in recreational therapy in years ahead.

Beyond higher education, the author has authored or coauthored of several widely used recreational therapy textbooks. He also served professional organizations such as the American Therapeutic Recreation Association, the Society of Park and Recreation Educators, and the Academy of Leisure Sciences. This book is a valuable resource for students and practitioners.
