"The third edition of Therapeutic Recreation offers a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of therapeutic recreation as a profession and a career choice. The authors have retained the practical, student-oriented approach that makes this an ideal text for an introductory course. Throughout the new edition the authors acknowledge the evolving nature of this dynamic health and human service profession by discussing the social, cultural, economic and technological forces that have influenced and continue to shape the role of therapeutic recreation specialists." "The third edition features a completely revamped chapter on management practices in health and human services as well as broader coverage of philosophies, enhanced helping skills and techniques, updated statistics on social impairments and aging, an expanded discussion of physical disabilities, and the latest DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria. Moreover, the text is loaded with pedagogical features that will help students appreciate the role of therapeutic recreation in enhancing an individual's health status, quality of life, and functional capacities."--BOOK JACKET.
