Management Functions in Recreational Therapy provides students and practitioners with perspectives on the management of recreational therapy. 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.

This book gives in-depth coverage to the five basic functions of management: planning, organization, staffing, influencing, and controlling. In addition, it explores key concepts integral to the management of recreational therapy programs such as internship supervision, clinical supervision, volunteer management, and managing marketing.

Moreover, this book presents issues and concerns for managers such as workplace politics, professional etiquette, and burnout. In addition to experiences in higher education, the authors have professional experiences ranging from publication of books in recreational therapy, serving on national and international boards as a recreational therapy representative, and conducting research and trainings in psychiatric rehabilitation.
