The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) from the World Health Organization is a major shift in health care. It looks at health, not from the traditional medical model of disease, disorder, or injury, but from a universal, integrative, and interactive model, which includes the social and environmental aspects of disability and health. This Handbook shows recreational therapists how to use the new model. Recreational therapists will find that the model matches very well with their practice.

Each of the 30+ diagnoses in Section 2 of the Handbook has a detailed diagnostic description, along with a review of the typical scope of the team assessment, anticipated RT assessment findings, both the whole team and recreational therapy approach, and common recreational therapy interventions specific to the diagnosis.

Each of the 70+ techniques, concepts, and pieces of equipment listed in the diagnosis or the ICF description is reviewed separately in Section 4 to provide valuable how-to information.

Reviewers’ comments:

The ICF of the WHO is a conceptualization of health, disability, and function that complements and validates both the philosophy and practice of recreation therapy as an important and valued member of the health care and health promotion community. This Handbook is a critical step for the RT profession and individual professionals to be able to identify and relate our practice to this globally accepted model for aiding efforts for optimal health and functioning.

The Recreational Therapy Handbook of Practice is quite comprehensive! Generally, I found it very easy to read and filled with practical advice that RTs will undoubtedly find useful and applicable in practice. I was impressed with the volume of information contained in the Handbook and I was also impressed with the relative ease in finding and understanding the information.

The depth of information is very good and will provide the profession with a good explanation of the relevance of the ICF to RT practice.

When I was in school I never saw a book that covered so much information. It really shows where all the "gray" areas are between OT/PT and SLP. It shows that TR is more than just recreation. This book would assist a TR that is at any level of practice from beginner to advanced.

This is a Handbook for RT clinical application designed to implement the ICF now. It will standardize communication, research, and therapy in the RT field and allow clearer communication with other disciplines. I salute Heather Porter and joan burlingame for this excellent manual. It is a model for other professional groups to follow in their own fields, within the U.S. and internationally.

This book is a necessary resource for Therapeutic Recreation Specialists. The information in this text is the key for us to start learning the International Classification of Functioning (ICF), with implementation going into our systems within the next couple of years.  The information provided is very helpful for treatment plans, techniques, and diagnostic information as well. As an instructor at an accredited University, I feel this textbook will be extremely helpful in teaching the students the information that will be expected for TRS’ to know.
     I am hopeful that the ICF will finally be the way in which Therapeutic Recreation can give functional, hard data information, for reporting and reimbursement information, right along side with the other disciplines on the same page.
     Therapeutic Recreation has been waiting for a textbook like this. The book pulls all our information together.
