Recreational therapy employs recreation and leisure activities as a tool to improve function and well-being for people living with disabilities or illnesses. Recreational therapists help maintain or improve a client's physical, mental, and emotional well-being through a variety of techniques, including sport, wellness forums, drama, music, dance, and community reintegration. Therapists assess individuals' needs, plan and implement specific interventions to meet those needs, and document and evaluate the effectiveness of the interventions.  The IU Online Master of Science in Recreational Therapy explores courses on measuring clinical outcomes; the delivery of therapeutic interventions; administration theory and management practices; research in health, kinesiology, and recreation; and statistics in public health. Through projects, internship opportunities, and field experiences, you learn how to execute the recreational therapy process of assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation (APIE), and gain a deeper understanding of theoretical foundations.
