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.

Health Protection/Health Promotion Model Update

As a result of recent thinking about my Health Protection/Health Promotion Model, I've decided to author an article on the reformulation of my conceptual model. The revised model will better relate to those clients who have chronic illnesses or disabilities.

I presented the changes in the model that I'm considering at the recent Therapeutic Recreation Ontario Conference and they seemed to be well received. My guess is that it will be a few months before an article appears to present the revised model but I thought I'd mention that it is in the works.
