Education and Therapeutic Recreation are assistive tools
to enable the individual to 1) gain a broader understanding
of where, why, how, and with whom he can pursue his leisure
interests and experiences and 2) unlearn non-adaptive and
learn more functional responses, i.e. to develop different
modes of leisure behavior which will enable the individual
to adapt to the environment to meet his free time needs." (Witt, Campbell &Witt, A Manual of Therapeutic Group
Activities for Leisure Education, 1981).
