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.

RT Research Appears in NT Times

Below is a link to an article written by Seth Schiesel a reporter from the New York Times about research being conducted by Carmen Russoniello at East Carolina University. The article discusses the positive effects brought about by playing video games for fun and how Carmen is studying these effects in his lab.

Carmen has reported that a larger detailed article is scheduled after the results are complete at the end of March. Wired Magazine will be here the first week of March and a professional film crew from New York will be here to do short clips that will be used on Good Morning America etc., sometime in March.

Carmen is very excited about these developments and what they will mean to the profession, department, and growth of the Recreational Therapy-Psychophysiology Lab and Biofeedback Clinic.
