Shouldn't RTs be Concerned about Obesity?
As I read the words of the APA president, I could not but help think about what we in recreational therapy are doing -- or not doing -- to combat the problem of obesity. Where are the RT programs directed at obesity? Why aren’t RT researchers examining how RTs can help clients with weight problems? Where is ATRA in terms of calling attention to the problem of obesity, providing practitioners with suggestions for intervention strategies, and affecting public policy?
What say you?
