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.

7th Edition of Widely Used Textbook to be Published

I want to let everyone know that a new edition of my book (David R. Austin) is to be published by Sagamore Publishing this fall: Below is a description of the book taken from the Sagamore Publishing website. The book's online price will be $62.95.

The seventh edition of Therapeutic Recreation Processes and Techniques has been extensively updated and revised in order to offer a sound knowledge base, current techniques, and the latest evidence upon which to base practice. In fact, the subtitle, Evidence-Based Recreational Therapy, has been added to emphasize the importance of evidence-based practice in recreational therapy. Today recreational therapists must possess a broad knowledge base that offers them a foundation for practice. This book explores how to practice recreational therapy yet provides theoretical and empirical evidence to support practice.
