Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

Madison RT Workshop, July 13 & 14

The Madison RT Workshop has been organized and hosted by Madison State Hospital staff for a number of years. Each summer around 50 practitioners look forward to gathering together at the annual Workshop in the charming community of Madison, Indiana. It was recently announced that the 2006 RT Workshop will be held July 13 and 14 on the beautiful grounds of Madison State Hospital, which overlook the Ohio River from a bluff high above the city of Madison.

This year's Workshop leaders will include RT practitioners Michelle Rucker-Benton, Lisa Cox, and Byron Welker, as well as Indiana University professors Georgia Frey (from adapted PE) and Lesa Lorenzen-Huber (from the Center on Aging). It will be my priviledge to join this excellent group of speakers on the Workshop program.

All RTs who wish to attend the Madison RT Workshop are welcome. (And, by the way, Madison offers ATRA CEUs for those attending.) Anyone with interest should contact Debbie Leland of the Madison staff for information and directions. Debbie may be reached at (812) 265-7471 or at the e-mail address of
