Dr. Colleen Hood- Supporting Client Change in TR: Are We Doing Everything We Can?
In therapeutic recreation, we often identify that we support client change. Perhaps we engage clients in experiences that change their current mood or their current patterns of action. Or perhaps we engage clients in experiences that are designed to bring about longer-term changes. Whatever kinds of changes we support, it is helpful to explore our thinking about change and to consider how we might become more sophisticated and effective in our efforts to support client change. It is also helpful to learn how to articulate what we are doing to support client change so that others begin to understand our interventions as well.

This session will examine our own theories of change as they relate to our work with clients (theories-of-action). We will then explore ways to improve our personal theories-of-action by incorporating scholarly theory, professional wisdom, and research. Finally, we will explore ways to expand our ideas and interventions related to client change.
