Strengths Based Symposium
September 14, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - October 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
We are experiencing a paradigm shift in health, human, and recreation services to a strengths approach. What is strengths-based practice? What are its theoretical underpinnings? How is therapeutic recreation practice different when using a strengths approach? In this workshop, we will explore this exciting paradigm shift and discuss how therapeutic recreation, with leisure at its heart, can flourish. The Flourishing through Leisure Model: An Ecological Extension of the Leisure and Well-Being Model will be explored as a framework for strengths-based therapeutic recreation practice. You will learn strengths-based assessment, planning, and various implementation strategies throughout this two-day workshop that you can apply in your practice. You will also learn how to build your own strengths as a therapeutic recreation professional.
Thursday, Sept 15th – Friday, Sept 16th
