  • A Need for Increased Awareness of Disability Models in Recreational
           Therapy Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shelly Beaver
      Abstract: Inherently embedded within the descriptions, models, and practices of the field of therapeutic recreation, disability models conceptualize disability, guide therapeutic processes and service delivery, and influence client experiences and outcomes. Despite their significance, disability models have received limited attention by the field resulting in inconsistencies within the philosophical underpinnings of the recreational therapy profession. The purpose of this article is to increase awareness of disability models and their implications for recreational therapy practice. A brief conceptual overview of three disability models, including the medical, social, and International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) models, is provided, and the models’ current applications in the field of therapeutic recreation are explored. Utilizing a disability studies lens, a critique of the relationships between each disability model and the core concepts of recreational therapy practice is presented. Commentary is provided to stimulate discussion regarding the need for philosophical consistency of disability values across the profession.

      Authors: Rodney Dieser
      Abstract: This paper describes a logotherapy meaning-centered therapeutic recreation model based on Viktor Frankl’s will to meaning theory and his centrifugal and centripetal leisure dichotomy. This manuscript introduces a therapeutic recreation meaning-centered intervention grounded in existentialism and logotherapy, with its focus on human suffering-meaning potentials and self-transcendence. Therapeutic recreation application begins with an assessment focused on understanding the client’s values and meaning potentials then links leisure as a way to discover or experience meaning. Primary intervention strategies are search for meaning and Socratic and maieutic dialog linked to leisure interest finders to help clients experience centripetal leisure. The paper presents an intervention applying these strategies. A concluding section offers recommendations for education and research.

  • The Role of Extraversion in the Effectiveness of Leisure Coping on
           Depressive Symptoms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shinichi Nagata, Bryan McCormick
      Abstract: Leisure is known as an effective coping strategy for depression. The foundational theory of leisure coping assumes that leisure coping can be beneficial in three ways: mood enhancement, diversion, and companionship. While theorists asserted that the above three strategies are universal, research suggests that the personality trait of extraversion is associated with leisure behavior and may affect the effectiveness of leisure coping strategies. The current study aimed to examine the role of extraversion in the relationship between leisure coping and depressive symptoms. A total of 155 adults with depression (59 males and 96 females) were recruited from four different depression-related venues and responded to an online survey. The results of multiple regression analyses found that extraversion did not affect the relationship of leisure palliative coping and mood enhancement; however, it significantly moderated the relationship between leisure companionship and depressive symptoms. While a significant negative association between leisure companionship and depressive symptoms was found among extroverts, no significant relationship was observed among introverts. The results suggest that the personality trait of extraversion matters to leisure coping and should be considered to better facilitate recreational therapy interventions.

  • Recreational Therapists’ Perceptions of the COVID-19 Impact on Older
           Adult Clients and Professional Practice – A Two-Part Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dawn DeVries, Martha Kemeny
      Abstract: Recreational therapists in Michigan and Pennsylvania were interviewed on their perceptions of the impact of COVID-19 on practice with older adults, including changes to their roles and responsibilities as well as the impact on older adults. Social distancing requirements, limitations on visitors and restrictions on groups transformed programming and practice, as well as negatively impacted older adults living in a variety of residential and community-based settings. This qualitative study included 14 recreational therapists. Related to practice, identified themes included the impact on programming, changing roles and responsibilities, how recreational therapists coped with adversity, and their considerations for future practice. Regarding impact on older adults, the resulting themes noted: 1) lack of socialization, 2) emotional and behavioral responses, 3) physical decline, and 4) cognitive decline. The challenges of working with clients living with cognitive impairments and barriers for older adults living in the community are discussed. Recommendations for practice and research to address the long-term effects of COVID-19 in recreational therapy with older adults are presented.
