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.

Recreation Therapy Videos

I just posted the following on ATRAnet and thought I'd repost it on the RT Blog. Here it is: I recently spoke at the Utah Recreation Therapy Association Conference. Although a state conference, it is more of a regional conference with 350 RTs attending from several states. An impressive meeting. While there I was told that several RTs and students had viewed the Recreation Therapy Videos made available free of charge by Indiana University. A group of students said they particularly enjoyed viewing the video “History of Therapeutic Recreation: Parts I, ll, lll.” Yet, I find many do not know that the RT videos are available at no charge via streaming. To take a look, just Google Recreation Therapy Videos and you should see a listing for Indiana University’s Scholarworks. The list of titles appears below. Check them out.
