Foundations of Therapeutic Recreation, Second Edition, introduces students to the many career possibilities in the field of therapeutic recreation. Drawing on the combined wisdom and expertise of editors Terry Long and Terry Robertson, as well as 20 contributing authors who represent a broad spectrum of experiences within the discipline, the text provides the foundational concepts that are essential for understanding the profession.

One of the more significant updates to the second edition of Foundations of Therapeutic Recreation is a more contemporary description of models of practice, including significant attention to strength-based models and approaches to practice. In addition, the second edition has been updated to reflect current National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC) requirements for obtaining the Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) credential. Other updates to this edition include the following:
  • Integration of more global perspectives on therapeutic recreation
  • Greater emphasis of evidence-based practice for designing and delivering enjoyable and beneficial therapeutic recreation interventions
  • Streamlined content and reorganized chapters to facilitate a natural progression throughout the semester
Each chapter contains a summary and discussion questions to help assess and promote retention of key concepts. In addition, case studies provide students with a glimpse of client issues they may face in the future, and professional profiles highlight outstanding professionals in the field.

Students will discover potential areas in which therapeutic recreation can be practiced—including mental health centers, programs for those with developmental disabilities, physical rehabilitation facilities, youth development programs, and programs for the aging population—and will also be exposed to potential changes and uses of therapeutic recreation as technology innovations, public policy, and service demand trends evolve.

Plus, instructors will find a suite of ancillaries to assist in managing their course. The instructor guide includes learning objectives for each chapter along with sample classroom activities and assignments. The test bank has been expanded, and the presentation package has undergone significant revisions to reflect the content of the text.

Foundations of Therapeutic Recreation, Second Edition, provides students with evidence-based information on fundamental concepts in the field of therapeutic recreation. With a reader-friendly format and engaging style, this text will help students explore the various career possibilities in the field.
