Dr. David Austin has a new video, which he discusses his new book, “Recreational Therapy: An Introduction (4th edition).”
The video is posted at the bottom of this blog entry.
I [Danny Pettry] had first discovered recreational therapy in 1999 while doing volunteer work at a rehabilitation hospital. I had signed up to take the introduction to recreational therapy course at Marshall University (Huntington, West Virginia).
I made a trip that fall with my parents from little Beckley, West Virginia to Huntington for the day. We went shopping and ate lunch and stopped by the university so I could go ahead and pick up my books.
I recall getting an earlier edition of this book on that trip.
I was so passionate and excited about recreational therapy that I started to read the book in our car ride back to Beckley (about a 2-hour drive).
This new edition seems great. I can’t wait to read it!
