Recreation and Leisure Service for the Disadvantaged: Guidelines to Program Development and Related Readings. Health Education, Physical Education, and Recreation Series.
Nesbitt, John A., Ed.; And Others
This book proposes the approach that, regardless of the present turmoil, regardless of technology and other social considerations, there is a fundamental inequity in the availability of cultural, recreational, and leisure experience that men of goodwill abhor. Seeing beyond hostile rhetoric, the book seeks to search out the foundations within the American recreation and leisure movement of a direct concern for the disadvantaged, to codify traditional and new concepts and procedures in recreation and leisure service for the disadvantaged in the form of guidelines to program development--these guidelines appearing at the beginning of each chapter in the book, and to identify the most relevant knowledge and experience on various aspects of recreation and leisure service for the disadvantaged. The latter takes the form of related readings which follow each set of guidelines--resulting in basic conceptual and procedural information. Specific sections focus on philosophical and sociological considerations; the historical perspective and precedent; contemporary interpretations relating to recreation and leisure for the disadvantaged; the organization and administration of recreation and leisure service for the disadvantaged; programming for the disadvantaged in recreation and leisure service; and employing the disadvantaged in recreation and leisure service.
