|If you are a professional
are you certified as CTRS by NCTRC?
I resolve to complete
and publish my most recent initiative which relates to decreasing
risk at hospital food events. I work in a continuing care
facility in Canada and have been mandated by my organization
to address this very serious issue.
expand my knowledge of T.R to the fullest of my abilities.
Also, to try to incorporate what I learn in T.R into my present
For our field to
be fully recognized and appreciated in Canada or at least
in Quebec because not many people even know what or who we
be accepted for publication in the TRJ
It is not a resolution
but rather an incredible dream - to have all of the 39000+
persons working in the field be credentialed at the CTRS
level and then to have each of those CTRSs be a member of
ATRA or NTRS or ultimately both. Let's all try to make that
have therapeutic recreation as a related service in the
local school district.
To live each day
in '97 to the fullest!!
attend TR conferences for my CEU's and professional development.
To use my TR skills and experience to make a career change.
To figure out if
RT is really for me, is this what I shall do for the rest
of this gift we call life?!
change the way my department is viewed. The LTC facility
I work at does not understand what RT is or what I am trained
to do. I also want to sit for the CTRS exam.
I don't make resolutions!
Only to keep trying to do my best!!
the importance of my own leisure.
To play more!! To
obtain a new TR job in Western Montana.
a new activity every season.
To regain employment
as a CTRS, and to help promote my professsion to all who
still are unsure of what a CTRS does.
a student studying Recreation Leadership, I hope to explore
therapeutic recreation in more depth. Thanks to co-op placement
and your website, my therapeutic horizons can now be expanded.
In 1997, I want to learn more for myself and take these findings
into the work force in oder to assist others. Jessica Brown:

I just completed
my MS degree requirements in TR and I resolve to have a job
in the field before I run out of money and have to move back
home with my parents. K. Newton EKU grad.
got to get out more!!! RECREATE!!
To continue my never
ending education of other proffessionals as to what the @#%& a
recreation therapist is!?
find an internship!!!
The lease functional,
most problem filled clients are the name of the game. If
they were "OK", they would not really need you
now would they? Being needed is part of the beauty of TR.
Touch all of them, but touch "the least of them" the
most. Joe Mondano NYS-CLA:
I WANT TO
HAVE FUN EVEN AT WORK! I DON'T WANT TO WORK AT HAVING FUN,
THE RESILUTION FOR ME IS TO PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH ABOUT
RECREATION SO I DON'T GET BURNED OUT.
