Therapeutic Recreation/Recreational Therapy
|Description:||The Therapeutic Recreation Program is a new interdisciplinary degree, whose graduates are able to analyze, design, implement, and evaluate therapeutic interventions. Therapeutic interventions are activities in recreation, arts, and crafts that are designed to achieve therapeutic outcomes in the physical, psychological, social, cognitive, and spiritual domains. The activities are designed to prevent harm to an individual or group, or to rehabilitate an individual’s or group’s capacity to obtain their full potential. Recent trends have elevated therapeutic recreation from an adjunct therapy to a therapy of first choice in order to address emerging health and social issues.
The co-op provides the student with the opportunity to practice in his/her chosen field. A co-op supervisor helps the student prepare for, select, and contract with an approved co-op opportunity. This paid co-op work experience is 14 weeks in length and is based at an approved recreational site.
