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/TR Week

I just read that "National Therapeutic Recreation Week" is scheduled to be held July 12 - 19, 2009.

I have long wondered why RT/TR Week is held in the summer when university programs are not in session and many are on vacation. Why not hold it during the academic year? Students could participate and RT/TR curricula might gain more attention on university campuses.

And why restrict RT/TR Week to the USA? Why don't the USA and Canada join together to hold a North America RT/TR Week?
