This book provides students and practitioners with perspectives on the management of recreational therapy heretofore unavailable to them. Many of the management concepts apply to middle-level managers, but the focus of the book is on first-line recreational therapy managers and the areas of management identified by the National Council on Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC).

In-depth coverage is given to the five basic functions of management: planning, organization, staffing, influencing, and controlling. In addition, chapters are provided on key concepts integral to the management of recreational therapy programs. Included are chapters on internship supervision, clinical supervision, volunteer management, and managing marketing.

The final chapter, Issues and Concerns for Managers, is unique in that it contains areas of substantial importance to managers that have received little attention in the recreational therapy literature.

The format for the book is readable and easy to follow. Each chapter lists objectives for the chapter, gives definitions of key terms used within the chapter, and ends with a conclusion or summary of the chapter.
