Abstract

The therapeutic recreation field has made progress toward the establishment of a recognized professional entity. There exist discrepancies, however, with regard to those standards recognized and accepted by the profession and those standards accepted by state personnel systems. This study examines the status of therapeutic recreation within state personnel systems.. Prevalent titles, salaries, and the minimum criteria required for the recruitment and employment of persons in therapeutic recreation related positions are presented.
