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.

Take a Look at Madison RT Workshop

For years, I organized the Madison RT Workshop. I.U. Professor Bryan McCormick has taken over the organization of the RT Workshop and has done a great job with it.

This year's RT Workshop is June 12 and 13. Most years 50 or more RTs attend. You can go for one day or both -- most go for both and enjoy an evening or two in Madison.

Several things stand out about the Madison RT Workshop. The first is that it has a tradition of outstanding presentations. This year's program is no exception (See post below).

Second, there is no charge for the Madison RT Workshop for members of RTI or members of any ATRA chapter. ATRA CEU's are available at a very modest cost.

Third, the Madison RT Workshop is sponsored by Madison State Hospital and held on the grounds of the hospital. The state hospital sits on a bluff overlooking the Ohio River and the city of Madison, Indiana. Madison is a charming river city, which is visited each year by thousands of tourists who come to see the lovely old homes and the beautiful river valley.

Madison is in easy driving distance of Indianapolis (2 hours), Louisville (1 hour), and Cincinnati (1 hour and 30 min.). So whether you are from Indiana, Kentucky, or Ohio (or even another state) do yourself a favor and plan to attend a very well designed workshop in a charming setting.

Thanks for the info Dave! I have posted it on the CDARTA website. I enjoyed attending the Madison workshop last year for the first time and I would highly recommend it to any CTRS or student! Where else can you go to a workshop for free???
