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.

Deadline for Annual Protocol Submissions Extended

Jennifer A. Piatt, CTRS, Ph.D. has announced the deadline has been extended for submission of a protocol to the Annual in Therapetic Recreation to March 19, 2012.

Evidence-based practice is an important concept in recreational therapy. The development of evidence-based intervention protocol has been promoted as a means of integrating research evidence with clinical judgment to provide effective, outcome-based practice in recreational therapy in order to improve the knowledge base in the field (Buettner & Fitzsimmons, 2006). The Annual in Therapeutic Recreation is soliciting practitioner and student manuscripts on intervention protocols for recreational therapy practice.
