As mentioned in my post here, I have found very little research that assesses healthcare interdisciplinary team member’s attitudes towards the role of therapeutic recreation professionals and how those attitudes affect their professional perspective of and ability to work collaboratively with them.
I am very interested in other healthcare professional’s perception of recreation therapy and our purpose. I am convinced that the more understanding we have of our team member’s roles through education, awareness, and even job shadowing, we display more respect, empathy, understanding, encouragement, and support for our fellow coworkers and our clients.
Below are some images that I put together that helps to explain how all of the disciplines work together to enhance the quality of life of our clients.
Below is a poster that I created for Therapeutic Recreation month, the slogan was submitted by a fellow ATRA member.
