As the recreation profession continues to evolve and mature, change is inevitable. Students, professionals, and educators continue to seek opportunities to develop and refine aspects of therapeutic recreation. The content in this second edition is intended to provoke discussion and provide guidance, and portrays the rich tapestry of therapeutic recreation by illuminating common threads of past knowledge and future hopes.The cases and issues presented are based on actual situations. Forty new cases are featured in this edition, representing diverse situations and challenges. Because aspects of some cases are featured in more than one chapter, readers will better understand the complexity of therapeutic recreation. Some cases are complete reports of situations, while others are intentionally left openhanded to stimulate alternative lines of analysis and discussion.Therapeutic Recreation: Cases and Exercises, Second Edition will serve as a key text to all therapeutic recreation courses, encouraging readers to apply what they already know, discover the unknown, seek new solutions, and enjoy the delightful challenge of analyzing and synthesizing those elements into the practice of therapeutic recreation. The text may be used to help students apply knowledge and skills gained throughout the entire therapeutic recreation curriculum -- introduction, assessment, program planning, facilitation techniques, and evaluation.Barbara C. Wilhite is the author of 'Therapeutic Recreation: Cases & Exercises', published 2000 under ISBN 9781892132123 and ISBN 1892132125.
