REC 300: Professional Foundations of Recreation Therapy
What is Recreational Therapy?
Recreational Therapy plays a critical role in the comprehensive rehabilitation of individuals with disabling conditions by contributing to the broad spectrum of healthcare through delivery of treatment services and through the provision of physical and recreational activities - each of which is instrumental in improving and maintaining physical and psycho-social functioning, preventing secondary health conditions, enhancing independent living skills and overall quality of life.
