1 Department of Recreation Management and Policy Weaving Quality Into Life Undergraduate Curriculum Option in: Therapeutic Recreation Faculty: Dr. Janet Sable, CTRS/L, Chair Dr. Patti Craig, CTRS/L Dr. Ann Morgan Dr. Chris Harrist Dr. Boyd Hegarty Dr. Nate Trauntvein Dr. Allison Wilder, CTRS/L 108 Hewitt Hall Durham, NH (603)

2 RECREATION MANAGEMENT & POLICY The challenge presented to individuals working within the leisure services profession is to enhance the quality of individual and community life through the provision of meaningful leisure experiences. Professionals in this industry are working in such settings as conference planning, resorts, state and national parks, corporate employee recreation services, racquet and health clubs, YMCA s, municipal recreation departments and clinical medical facilities (therapeutic recreation). In part, because the spectrum of the leisure service industry is so broad, job opportunities in the leisure services have been growing at a faster rate than most industries, including other service industries. In response to the diversity of professional employment opportunities, students in the Recreation Management & Policy program choose to pursue one of two options within the major: Program Administration or Therapeutic Recreation. Students interested in a career as a nationally Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist should seek a background in the biological sciences and have a desire to work with individuals with disabilities as a member of a clinical treatment team. It is desirable for students considering the Program Administration option to have a background in written and oral communication, human development and psychology and to be interested in planning and managing leisure service programs in a variety of settings. The curriculum within Recreation Management and Policy for all student majors includes a strong liberal arts foundation; a core of professional courses; course work in computer applications, administration, planning and public relations, and numerous opportunities for applied field experiences.

3 Therapeutic Recreation Option Therapeutic Recreation utilizes recreation to help people with disabilities and illnesses to develop & use their leisure in ways that enhance health, independence, & well-being. The ultimate goal of therapeutic recreation is to facilitate full & optimal involvement in community life. The purpose of recreation therapy is to improve health & the quality of life by reducing impairments of body function and structure, reducing activity limitations, participation restrictions, & environmental barriers of the clients served. TR recognizes the importance of quality of life and uses activities to remediate or rehabilitate functional abilities. Therapeutic Recreation services are provided in a variety of settings including: hospitals, long-term care facilities, residential treatment facilities, schools, correctional facilities, rehabilitation centers, camp & outdoor education centers & adult day programs. Upon successful completion of this option, students are prepared to meet sitting requirements for the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification Examination. Once certified by NCTRC, students may apply for a CTRS/L license, which will enable them to practice in New Hampshire. Purpose and Goals of the Therapeutic Recreation Option The purpose of the Therapeutic Recreation Option within the RMP department is to prepare students to work in clinical, allied health facilities (e.g. hospitals, rehabilitation centers, mental health programs, extended care facilities) & community-based recreation programs that serve individuals with disabilities. Consistent with other allied health programs, students professional preparation is rooted in an education based on the foundation of liberal arts designed to ensure a practitioner who is capable of critical thinking, communication & an individual with a strong core of central values regarding life, culture & the communities in which they live. The overriding goals for our students are the ability to: Demonstrate knowledge of systems and ethical practices of therapeutic recreation directed at improving the health-related quality of life of persons with physical, psychological, and cognitive disabilities. Demonstrate a sophisticated use of language in written and verbal communication with regard to intervention, assessment, and documentation of client outcomes and professional interaction with interdisciplinary teams. Pass the national certification exam to ensure certification as a CTRS and meet the criteria for state licensure in TR in order to practice in New Hampshire as a CTRS/L. Child Life Minor This interdisciplinary minor is offered to a limited number of students by the therapeutic recreation option in the Department of Recreation Management and Policy & the Department of Family Studies. Upon completion of course requirements, students will be able to sit for the Child Life Specialist exam. All students complete three core courses: RMP 502, RMP 565, and FS 525. Therapeutic Recreation students will select two courses from the following: FS 623, FS 635, FS 641, FS 709, FS 734, and FS 772. Students will complete an Internship (RMP 593-F for TR students), which will entail a minimum of 480 hours of experience and be 2

4 supervised by a certified Child Life Specialist. Therapeutic recreation majors will be assigned a minor adviser from Family Studies. Employment Outlook According to the American Medical Association s Health Care Careers Directory , employment of therapeutic recreation specialists is expected to increase 4% from 2006 to The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that recreational therapists will experience competition for jobs. Job opportunities will be best for people with a bachelor s degree in therapeutic recreation or therapists who hold specialized certifications and in certain regions of the country. Health care facilities will provide a growing number of jobs in adult day care and outpatient programs offering short-term mental health and alcohol or drug abuse services. Rehabilitation, home health care, and transitional program will provide additional jobs. The rapidly growing number of older people is expected to spur job growth for therapeutic recreation specialists in long-term care facilities, retirement communities, assisted living facilities, adult day care programs, and social service agencies. Continued growth is also expected in community residential facilities, as well as adult day care programs for people with disabilities. As of 2004, salary for therapeutic recreation specialists with the CTRS credential averaged $30,000 (starting), $39,000 (overall average), and $60,000 to $70,000 (upper ranges). Data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2007 shows that wages at the 10 th percentile were $21,700, the 50 th percentile (median) at $36,940, and the 90 th percentile at $58,030 (www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes htm).

7 Most Frequently Asked Questions about Therapeutic Recreation What kinds of settings/ agencies employ Therapeutic Recreation Specialists? With what kinds of people do Therapeutic Recreation Specialists work? Who are the people who receive therapeutic recreation services? What does a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist do? What are the similarities and differences between Therapeutic Recreation, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy? Therapeutic Recreation Specialists are employed in a variety of settings. Some of the common sites are rehabilitation centers, hospitals, substance abuse treatment centers/programs, psychiatric/mental health agencies, extended care facilities, public recreation departments, and schools Therapeutic Recreation Services are designed for those individuals who have had a serious illness, accident, or have a permanent or temporary disability. Therapeutic Recreation Specialists work with individuals with a diversity of disabilities (e.g.: spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic head injury, chronic pain, Alzheimer s, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, chemical dependency, psychotic disorders, depression, eating disorders.) As a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, you provide treatment, leisure education and recreation services to individuals who have an illness or disability. A typical day might include interviewing new clients, conducting client assessments, developing treatment plans, implementing programs based on client needs, evaluating client progress, and charting or documenting these events in the client s medical record. Examples of programs that you might provide include: leisure education groups, adventure activities, social skills training, leisure skill development, community reintegration experiences, leisure-oriented adaptive equipment workshops, exercise and conditioning, stress management. Each of these career options is an allied health profession. Professionals in these areas find employment in similar and/or the same settings. In fact, the therapeutic recreation specialist, occupational therapist and physical therapist often find that they work together within a team approach to provide optimal health care to their patients or clients. The differences are most easily seen within each profession s primary focus and purpose. For example, while each of these professionals may provide treatment to improve a patient s health status and functional abilities, the ultimate concern of the Therapeutic Recreation specialist for improving these skills is to enhance the patient s quality of life and ability to fully participate in leisure and/or play. The Occupational Therapist s goal focuses primarily upon activities of daily living and skills essential to work/ occupation and the Physical Therapist focuses on the goals essential to rehabilitation of movement and physical functioning. 6

8 How will I gain experience? Is there and opportunity to gain experience in college? What types of courses will I be required to take if I pursue a career in Therapeutic Recreation? Do you have to acquire and kind of special credentials to practice? What attributes and interests do you need to be a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist? We feel that practical experience is an important aspect of the learning process in therapeutic recreation. There are two components in the therapeutic recreation curriculum whereby students receive specially-designed on-site experience. The first experience involves several planned experimental exercises incorporated into various courses throughout the curriculum. The second experience occurs between the junior and senior year and involves a week on-site clinical internship under the supervision of a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist. All students at the University of New Hampshire are required to complete a Discovery Program which provides a foundation in the liberal arts. Students pursuing a career in therapeutic recreation will also obtain a foundation in leisure studies with an expertise in the principles and practices of therapeutic recreation. Additionally, there are required and elective support courses such as anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, psychology, special education, etc. which make up another component of the therapeutic recreation curriculum. The theoretical courses are then supplemented by experiential learning in the practicum and internship courses. The credentialing body for therapeutic recreation professionals is the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification. Most employers require certification as a condition of employment. In order to be certified at the professional level (CTRS), the individual must first meet sitting requirements in order to qualify to take the national exam. These requirements include completion of specific coursework in recreation and therapeutic recreation, an approved clinical internship under the supervision of a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, and support coursework in psychology, the biological and physical sciences, and related human service areas. The curriculum at UNH is designed to assure the completion of courses needed to sit for the national exam. Application to take the exam is initiated after graduation. First, you must be interested in providing services to people. Secondly, it is important that you have an interest in working in health care and/or clinical setting and a concern for the leisure needs and rights of individuals who have an illness or disability. Attributes which students find helpful as they progress through the curriculum are: empathy, ability to listen, respect for others rights, and an acceptance of diversity. Students who are outgoing, creative, flexible, and self-motivated have found therapeutic recreation a fulfilling and challenging profession. 7

9 What is the market and salary? Job placement has been highly successful for UNH graduates. Many of our students are recruited by the agencies where the student completed his/her internship. Past graduates have established a very appealing track record with their employers, which has increased the demand and marketability for UNH graduates. There are opportunities for employment nationwide as well as some opportunities internationally. UNH has graduates who are employed from East coast to West coast, including Hawaii and Alaska, providing an opportunity for excellent networking. Salaries vary from region to region as they do in most health care professions. There are also varied pay scales dependent upon the type of agency, e.g. private vs. public, Veteran s Administration, state government, etc. Entry-level salaries may range from $36,000- $48,000 depending on location and setting. Average annual salary for CTRS working in Northeast is $42, (2004 Survey). What kind of support can I expect from the UNH department faculty and my advisor? Faculty in the RMP Department view advising as a very important and integral part of the student s academic program. Upon declaring Therapeutic Recreation as your option of study, you will meet the faculty person who will serve as your advisor throughout your curriculum. You will schedule appointments with your advisor during specific periods such as pre-registration to help you with questions concerning courses and scheduling. You are also encouraged to periodically drop-by when you need assistance in solving an academic problem or simply need a faculty member with whom you can sit and talk. Our faculty are known for their sincere interest in the individual student and for maintaining contact with the students once they have graduated from UNH. DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS????

10 Procedures for Admission to the Major Academic Standards for Admission and Retention Department of Recreation Management and Policy (RMP) University of New Hampshire A) New UNH Students (first-year and external transfer admissions): Students who are admitted to the University of New Hampshire as first-year students or external transfer students from another college or university or from the Thompson School, may gain admission to the major simply by declaring the Recreation Management and Policy major as a part of the UNH admissions process. B) Internal Transfer Students (students who are already enrolled at UNH and wish to change their major to RMP): 1. To enter the RMP major as an internal transfer student, you must first be a degree candidate in good academic standing within the University. This means that you must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (e.g. even a 1.99 GPA will not meet this 2.0 minimum standard). 2. We ask you to go through a short process of both gathering information and, then sharing information with a RMP faculty member in order to better understand the RMP curriculum and profession prior to enrollment in the major. We want you to know what you re getting into and, to be prepared to be an active and satisfied participant in the RMP major. This process is as follows: a. Obtain (either via stopping by the RMP office or via mail upon request) written materials about the RMP curriculum you are interested in from the department s Academic Assistant. b. If you are still interested in declaring the RMP major after studying the written materials, schedule an interview appointment with the TR Option Coordinator Allison Wilder or call her to schedule an appointment at c. Following the interview with and upon the consequent approval of a RMP faculty member, you will receive an application to the major. d. Complete the application and provide all requested documentation. 3. You will be notified by letter of the faculty s decision regarding your admission at least one week prior to registration. 9

11 4. If you are admitted to the major, you must complete a University change of Major form and have it signed by your new RMP advisor. We invite and suggest that you make an appointment with your new faculty advisor fairly soon after receiving this letter to meet him/her and to begin to establish your schedule of courses within the curriculum. RMP Policy on Retention of RMP Major Status A) Showing Continuous Course Enrollment and Completion Progress Through the RMP Curriculum: Once you choose/declare the RMP major you MUST follow the curriculum sequence each semester leading to graduation with a degree in the major. When you declare the RMP major, your faculty advisor will work with you to determine a curriculum schedule which, upon your satisfactory academic achievement, will lead to reasonable expectations for a graduation date. Therefore, you may NOT simply sit within the RMP major without making reasonable progress toward the degree in the major. You will be required to take at least the minimum number of required courses necessary to keep you on schedule toward graduation with a RMP degree. As a means of enforcement of this policy, RMP faculty cannot approve/sign course pre-registration forms or add/drop forms which do not reflect reasonable student progress toward the RMP degree. A one semester grace-period may be granted at the discretion of the student s RMP faculty advisor as circumstances such as leaves of absence, semesters abroad/ international exchange or immediately pending change of major, warrant as reasonable exceptions to the departmental policy. B) A MINIMUM Semester G.P.A. of 2.50 is Required to Maintain Good Academic Standing Within the RMP Major. Once a student is admitted to the RMP major (other than during the first semester of the freshman year refer to the section on Freshman Exception ) s/he MUST achieve and maintain a minimum semester GPA of 2.50 each and every semester to maintain good academic standing within the department. This policy becomes effective immediately during the semester that the student declares the major regardless of the time during the semester that s/he enters the major. (Example: even if a student declares/enters the major in November, s/he will be held to the department s 2.50 minimum academic standard for grades achieved during the Fall semester). 1. Academic Probation after One Semester Below 2.50 GPA. If a RMP student s semester GPA falls below the minimum 2.50 requirement, that student will first be placed on departmental probation for the next semester. Should the student then achieve a 2.50 semester GPA or above during the probation semester, s/he will be returned to good academic standing within the department. 10

12 2. Academic Exclusion from the Major. Any student who earns a semester GPA below 2.50 for two consecutive semesters or earns a semester GPA below 2.5 for three semesters, consecutive or not, will be excluded from the major. Students will be advised to change majors, and will no longer be entitled to the academic attention of advising, etc. from the RMP department. Exclusion means students can not progress in required courses in the major. It is in the student s best interest to declare another major at this point since s/he can no longer make progress toward a degree in RMP. If you don t act to change majors prior to pre-registration of the semester following your exclusion, the RMP department will take action to initiate your exclusion from the University through the CHHS Dean s office. ESPECIALLY NOTE (due to potential severity of consequences): A student who has earned academic EXCLUSION from the major (e.g. a full academic year two consecutive semesters, with less than the minimum 2.50 semester GPA) will NOT be permitted to engage in the required professional Internship (RMP 664). 3. Freshman Exception Students entering UNH and the RMP major as first semester freshmen will not be subject to departmental academic probation at the conclusion of their first semester in order to allow for a period of adjustment to university life. If, however, a freshman does not attain the required 2.50 semester GPA at the end of the second semester, s/he will then be placed on departmental probation. C) Minimum Grade in Courses Required by the Department 1. Required RMP Courses: Recreation Management and Policy major must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in all required RMP courses. Any student who earns less than a C in a required RMP course must repeat that course and earn a C or better in order to continue to advance within the curriculum. 2. Required University and Emphasis Area Courses: RMP major must earn a minimum grade of C- (1.67) in all courses taken to fulfill departmental requirements beyond the RMPdesignated/labeled courses referred to in part A. above. This includes courses taken from other University departments in order to fulfill the RMP department s Emphasis Area requirement. Any student who earns less than a C- in courses required by the department but offered/taught beyond the department must repeat that course(s) until a minimum competency indicator grade of C- or better is earned. D) RMP Department Policy on Academic Dishonesty Any student majoring in RMP who receives an F in a RMP course because of academic dishonesty may be dismissed from the major by a vote of the RMP Faculty and if dismissed cannot continue in the major. 11

13 RECREATION MANAGEMENT AND POLICY ACADEMIC ADVISING PROCEDURES AND FACULTY ADVISING RESPONSIBILITIES Welcome to the Department of Recreation Management and Policy. As an accepted major you will be assigned a faculty advisor who will assist you in planning your courses for the duration of your RMP status. As you progress through your academic career you will generally meet with your advisor a minimum of twice a year, usually in November and April prior to your scheduled registration period. Although you are free to make an appointment with your Advisor at any time during the academic year, you should pay particular attention during the periods prior to registration and be sure to sign up for an advising appointment. These meetings are mandated by the University and afford an opportunity for advisors to check student s course selections and distribute Registration Access Code s (RAC) needed for registration. Faculty members may post signup sheets on their office doors or they may use the time cat scheduler, a web-based scheduling tool. Advising time frames are announced in RMP classes. Students should come to their advising appointments with a schedule of potential courses listed out. This is particularly true of Discovery courses. To ensure a well-rounded education, the University of New Hampshire offers students a wide range of options to meet these requirements. Although the Department of Recreation Management and Policy specifies certain Discovery course requirements for its students, students are given the freedom to choose courses that interest them in a number of areas. Information gleaned from other students and/or by a careful reading of the Undergraduate Catalog may prove most beneficial in choosing which courses to take. The primary responsibility of the Faculty Advisor is to ensure that students get adequate guidance with respect to Major Requirements. Courses that meet major requirements are listed on advising worksheets used by faculty advisors and are kept in the student s file. These courses are limited to RMP core classes, courses required by the department, department electives, and emphasis area courses. If a student wishes to check the status of their course work they may access their file during normal office hours by contacting the RMP secretary. Students should be aware that faculty expertise in advising is concentrated in courses required by the department as indicated above, and not in Discovery requirements. Your faculty advisor will work with you to the extent needed to help answer any questions you may have and to assist you in planning your course work. It is not the intention of the Department of Recreation Management and Policy to take over any responsibilities assigned to the student or the Office of the Registrar by the University of New Hampshire. To that end faculty advisors will not count credits needed towards graduation nor will they assure students that all graduation requirements have been met. Responsibilities for these functions lie with the student, as indicated in section 06.1 of the Academic Policies section of Students Rights, Rules, and Responsibilities Handbook, and with the Office of the Registrar. Students with graduation and or credit total questions should contact the Office of the Registrar. 12
