Facilitating Leisure Development for the Disabled: A Status Report on Leisure Counseling.
Humphrey, Fred, Ed.; And Others
This document contains selected papers from the 1979 National Forum on Leisure Counseling. The initial paper is designed to guide the efforts of the Forum participants and to facilitate a more efficient use of time and resources by providing an historical review of literature relevant to certain issues in leisure counseling. The next paper provides reviews, overviews, and previews of selected leisure counseling issues, while a third paper on leisure counseling theory and practice considers the different approaches required by different goals. An article on interdisciplinary approaches to leisure counseling discusses the nature of man, the practice of leisure counseling, and the profession of leisure counseling. Professional issues in leisure counseling are addressed in the next paper and the role of recreation and park professionals in the field is explored. The final chapter reflects on and synthesizes input and recommendations from the conference. A selected bibliography is followed by an appendix containing reports of small work groups at the Forum which met to discuss various issues. Group reports are provided on approaches to leisure counseling, training needs, research needs, and the need for ethics in leisure counseling. A list of Forum participants concludes this volume.
