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.
