Registration for Strengths Based Symposium Now Available!
To celebrate the 25th BCTRA Anniversary, we will be hosting a Symposium featuring the 2 day session”Therapeutic Recreation Practice: A Strengths-Based Approach” Presented by: Dr. Linda Heyne and Dr. Lynn Anderson on September 15 & 16, 2016 at the Best Western Coquitlam Convention Centre.
Sessions will run from 9:00am till 5:00pm on both days with provided lunch.
Session Summary: We are experiencing a paradigm shift in health, human, and recreation services to a strengths approach. What is strengths-based practice? What are its theoretical underpinnings? How is therapeutic recreation practice different when using a strengths approach? In this workshop, we will explore this exciting paradigm shift and discuss how therapeutic recreation, with leisure at its heart, can flourish. The Flourishing through Leisure Model: An Ecological Extension of the Leisure and Well-Being Model will be explored as a framework for strengths-based therapeutic recreation practice. You will learn strengths-based assessment, planning, and various implementation strategies throughout this two-day workshop that you can apply in your practice. You will also learn how to build your own strengths as a therapeutic recreation professional.
