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.

Aromatherapy Resource

A few years ago an RT told me a story about having one of her female nursing home clients use hand lotion with lavender. Just this one change remarkably reduced the client's aggression.

This so impressed me that I made sure that aromatherapy was included as a facilitation technique in my book, Therapeutic Recreation Processes and Techniques (5th edition).

Yesterday, while at the IU Med Center Bookstore, I found another resource on aromatherapy. I thought I should pass it on to others. It is a 4-page laminated resource by Permacharts. For $3.95 a wealth of information is provided on aromatherapy.
