I’ve been 100% enthusiastic about recreational therapy since July 1999.
I discovered recreational while doing 40 hours of volunteer work to be admitted in a nursing degree program.
Nurses are the backbone of health-care. They do amazing work.
Nursing wasn’t right for me. Nursing didn’t make my heart sing.
Rec therapy was right for me. I knew instantly that I had to become a rec therapist.
This August will make my 21st anniversary working as a rec therapist for several psychiatric residential treatment facilities at a psychiatric hospital.
This July made my 20th anniversary as a certified therapeutic recreation specialist (CTRS).
Rec Therapy Today (formerly dannypettry.com: rec therapy ceus) hit a 15th anniversary in May of this year.
I’m still enthusiastic about helping the patients I provide services for at the psychiatric residential treatment facility (PRTF) as I was on the first day of work back in August 2002.
I’m enthusiastic about training rec therapist so they can continue to learn, grow and provide greater levels of compassionate care for the people they provide services for.
