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.

CTRA Endorses CTRS Credential

I just received this (below) announcement from NCTRC. I think it is a real step forward for Canada and the USA. Both CTRA and Bob Riley and NCTRC are to be congratulated on this achievement!

The Canadian Therapeutic Recreation Association (CTRA) and the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC) entered into a formal agreement pertaining to the endorsement and the promotion of the Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) credentialing program. The purpose of this agreement is to acknowledge the CTRS designation as the benchmark for the qualified provider of RT/TR services and to promote its use throughout Canada and the United States. Formal endorsement of this agreement occurred on May 15, 2009 at a signing ceremony conducted at the CTRA Annual Conference, held in Calgary, Alberta, CA.
