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.

Friendly Reminder to Educators on RTV Videos

Just a quick reminder to those of you getting together your syllabi for the fall term that all 23 Recreation Therapy Videos (RTV) are available to you and your students via streaming.

You can ask your students to view an RTV video prior to class or you can show a video in your classroom. There are videos that fit into any number of courses. For instance, "To Serve a Purpose" is an excellent video to introduce students to RT/TR in an Introduction to Therapeutic Recreation course. Also useful in an Intro course is the three-part history of TR video.

There are 3 videos on therapeutic communication that may be used in a course on that topic or in a course on techniques in TR. The "Pioneers in TR" video has two parts. It might fit well in a senior seminar. Remember if you want Part 2 containing the most recent pioneers, you have to click on the address for Part 2 of the pioneers video. The list of possible videos goes on and on.

Take a look at the titles of RTV videos and see for yourself ones that will fit within your fall courses. I've repeated the information below on how to access the videos.

Once at the link, simply click on the title of the video you wish to view. This will take you to the page for the video where you just click on the address and the video will come up for viewing.
