Edwards, Patsy B.
This manual examines the substantive ingredients of leisure counseling and provides a sequential model that counselors and clients can use to develop individualized leisure programs. Leisure counseling is defined as the process of helping persons to determine their leisure interests and to assist them in choosing and following practical, satisfying leisure pursuits. Topics include: (1) the use of interviews, testing, analysis, and research; (2) qualifications of leisure counselors; (3) types of leisure counseling; (4) the collection and maintenance of referral material; (5) time study and analysis methods; and (6) strategies for individual and group counseling sessions. The appendices contain a model for leisure counseling in the primary grades, leisure counseling case histories, and results of a pilot study investigating the consequences of leisure counseling on normal adults.
