RECREATIONAL THERAPIST JOBS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THERAPEUTIC RECREATION SPECIALISTS
Resources for recreational therapists including journals and publications, jobs, recruiters, organizations, and CE.

Recreational therapists, also referred to as therapeutic recreation specialists, provide treatment services and recreation activities to individuals with disabilities or illnesses. Using a variety of techniques, including arts and crafts, animals, sports, games, dance and movement, drama, music, and community outings, therapists treat and maintain the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of their clients. Therapists help individuals reduce depression, stress, and anxiety; recover basic motor functioning and reasoning abilities; build confidence; and socialize effectively so that they can enjoy greater independence, as well as reduce or eliminate the effects of their illness or disability. In addition, therapists help integrate people with disabilities into the community by teaching them how to use community resources and recreational activities. Recreational therapists should not be confused with recreation and fitness workers, who organize recreational activities primarily for enjoyment.

In acute healthcare settings, such as hospitals and rehabilitation centers, recreational therapists treat and rehabilitate individuals with specific health conditions, usually in conjunction or collaboration with physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and physical and occupational therapists. In long-term and residential care facilities, recreational therapists use leisure activities—especially structured group programs—to improve and maintain their clients’ general health and well-being. They also may provide interventions to prevent the client from suffering further medical problems and complications related to illnesses and disabilities.

Median annual earnings of recreational therapists were $30,540 in 2002. The middle 50 percent earned between $23,180 and $38,620. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $18,130, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $47,180. In 2002, median annual earnings for recreational therapists were $25,010 in nursing care facilities.
