Therapeutic Recreation is the provision of treatment services and the provision of recreation services to persons with illnesses or disabling conditions. Therapeutic recreation uses treatment, education and recreation services to help people with illnesses, disabilities and other conditions to develop and use their leisure in ways that enhance their health, functional abilities, independence and quality of life.
I personally am interested in this topic because i believe that everyone should be given a chance to experience life and recreation no matter what kind of problems or disabilities that one has in their lives. The one thing that I would like to learn more about Therapeutic Recreation is how to work with a large group of people that are all different with different types of disabilities or problems.
I hope to be able to learn as much as I can about Therapeutic recreation so that I am able to spread the word and educate as many people as I am able to on the benefits of working with people are living with disabilities and adversity everyday. If I am able to spread the word then more people will become more aware and conscious of people who live with disabilities.
