1 Doesn't the job of recreational therapist sound like fun? It is an actual health career. A recreational therapist provides treatment to sick and disabled people. Recreational therapy is meant to reduce the effects of illnesses and disabilities. A recreational therapist's goal is to improve a person's health and well-being through recreational tasks. This job should not be confused with a recreational worker whose goal is mainly enjoyment.
2 Recreational therapists are part of a team. They discover the needs, abilities, and limitations of their patients. They work with doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and other therapists. They also take cues from family members. They may work in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, or adult day care facilities. They may work in outpatient programs, mental health centers, and alcohol/drug abuse treatment centers.
3 RTs need a bachelor's degree in Therapeutic Recreation. Courses would include recreational and leisure theory, behavioral science, physical science, and biology. An internship would also be included. Recreational therapists need to understand program planning, intervention design, evaluation, assistive devices, and human anatomy. National certification is offered in this field. RTs may specialize in aquatic therapy, mediation, and crisis intervention as well.
