Abstract

In 1969, Thomas Stein included a separate section on therapeutic recreation as part of the bi-annual recreation education survey for the Society of Park and Recreation Educators. In 1979, Anderson and Stewart conducted a 10 year follow-up study of therapeutic recreation education. The authors felt it was important to conduct another 10 year follow-up study investigating similar issues. The results of the 1989 survey are compared to the 1979 and 1969 surveys to identify patterns and trends in therapeutic recreation programs. The information will also be used to describe the current status of therapeutic recreation education and identify colleges and universities that offer programs. Numbers ofprograms, faculty, and students are examined as well as the status of curriculum accreditation and professional certification.
