Leisure assessments with solid reliability and validity that are quick and easy to use. The Idyll Arbor Leisure Battery (IA LB) provides the therapist with a broad, accurate measure of an individual's leisure aptitudes. The IA LB is made up of four subsections: leisure attitude, leisure interest, leisure motivation, and leisure satisfaction. They may be used separately, or in any combination. See the descriptions of the subscales under items A146, A147, A148, and A149.
