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.

Curriculum Conference Announced

Tim Passmore sent this announcement along recently:

Therapeutic Recreation Educators’ Conference II
TREC II, June 18th thru 21st, 2009

Educators and practitioners are encouraged to save the dates in 2009 of June 18th thru 21st for the TREC II to be held on the campus of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The conference, which will occur over two full days on June 19th & 20th, is sponsored by the American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA) and the National Therapeutic Recreation Society (NTRS) and hosted by the Therapeutic Recreation Association of Oklahoma (TRAO) and Oklahoma State University. The focus of this conference is to build upon the TREC 2005 conference document, to address new issues which have come to the forefront of the profession since TREC 2005, and to produce a written document for purposes of documenting the outcomes of the conference. The potential for the publication of a refereed manuscript also exists for conference presenters and attendees, discussions are currently taking place with the editors of the TRJ to ensure the possibility of a special issue devoted to Higher Education.

Please, look for future announcements regarding TREC II to be posted on the ATRA Educators listserv, the ATRA Website, the ATRA Newsletter, the NTRS Website, SPRE listserv, at the ATRA Annual Conference, and the NRPA National Congress. The hosts of TREC II the Therapeutic Recreation Association of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University are in the process of developing a website dedicated to TREC II for promotion, registration, and dissemination of both pre-conference and post conference information.

Please, contact Dr. Tim Passmore at or Dr. Jerry Jordan at for additional information.

This is encouraging. I wish I could attend just to be a "fly on the wall" as I am curious about the agenda.
