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.

Positive Psychology Article

I recently ran across an article on positive psychology that others with interest in the topic may wish to read. It is "What (and Why) Is Positive Psychology?" The authors are Shelly L. Gable and Jonathan Haidt. The article appeared in the Review of General Psychology, Vol 9 (2), June, 2005, pp. 103 - 110.

The more I learn about positive psychology, the more I believe that recreational therapists are applied positive psychologists.
