Are We a Profession? An Emerging Profession?
Grebner, Florence D.; And Others
An introduction by Florence D. Grebner setting the discussion topic in context and three substantive papers on the future for professionalism within the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) form the body of this document. The first of the substantive papers, entitled "Are We a Profession? An Emerging Profession" by Diane B. Walker, addresses questions on the benefits of professionalizing, barriers, trends, and costs. The second, "Ten Lessons from the Health Education Credentialing Experience" by Elaine M. Vitello, discusses the process of credentialing professionals in the health education field. The third paper, "The Past, Present, and Possible Future of Credentialing in Sport and Physical Education" by Earle F. Ziegler discusses the status of sport and physical education as professions, and concludes that they have historically been and continue to be perceived as emerging professions. (JD)
