What follows is a description and listing of the RTV videos:
A total of 23 instructional videos were produced by the Recreation Therapy Video (RTV) Project directed by Professor David R. Austin, Ph.D., CTRS, of Indiana University. The RTV Project was made possible through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
Topics of the RTV videos range from an introduction to recreation therapy, provided by “To Serve a Purpose,” to developing such skills as engaging in therapeutic communications, making client observations, completing documentation, giving and receiving clinical supervision, and understanding models of practice. Three separate videos extensively cover the history of recreation therapy and another presents pioneers in recreation therapy.
