Call for Research Participants

Spirituality in Therapeutic Recreation: A qualitative study exploring how spirituality is understood, addressed and facilitated in practice

Participants are needed for a research study exploring how spirituality is addressed and facilitated by Recreation Therapists in the context of Therapeutic Recreation services. Jennifer MacKenzie, a Dalhousie University Therapeutic Recreation honours student has contacted us to assist in the recruitment of participants for her honours project.

To be eligible for participation in this study you must be a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist. You must be currently practicing as a Recreation Therapist and have worked as a Recreation Therapist for at least one year. You must also incorporate spirituality within your practice. In other words, your ideas about spirituality shape the way you approach your work, your conversation with clients, or the activities you plan and undertake in your work. Participation in this study will involve taking part in an in person or over the phone audio taped interview for about 30 to 45 minutes.

To participate in this study or to receive more information, please contact:
