Recreational Therapy Basics, Techniques, and Interventions contains 51 chapters about recreational therapy practice. The book provides a concise guide to evidence-based practice for each treatment, explains how to accurately connect recreational therapy treatment with the clientís diagnosis to improve reimbursement for therapy, and suggest ways to standardized practice using the World Health Organizationís International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF).

Ten chapters describe the basics including topics such as activity and task analysis, body mechanics, consequences of inactivity, and effects of stress. There are 41 chapters with in-depth descriptions of techniques and interventions used by recreational therapists. These include adaptive sports, behavior strategies, disability rights education, medical play, social skills training, walking and gait training, and wheelchair mobility.

Thirty experts in recreational therapy and related disciplines offer the latest information about basics, techniques, and interventions that are used by recreational therapists. Each treatment chapter contains a detailed description of the topic, including:

*† Indications
*† Contraindications
*† Protocol
*† Process
*† Outcomes
*† Documentation
*† Further resources for therapists, clients, and families
