Herbert, James T.
Therapeutic Recreation Journal, v34 n3 p211-26 Third Qtr 2000
Investigated the attitudes of staff members working in a therapeutic adventure program toward people with disabilities. Staff surveys indicated that overall, staff members' attitudes were positive, and they perceived people with and without disabilities similarly. However, there was a stronger negative preference to work with people with physical disabilities. Attitudes did not differ by gender or educational level. (SM)
