OVERVIEWIt is important to look at the lifestyle of the TR professional and encourage personal health and well-being.  Often times, TR professionals face burnout and working days that affect their own leisure and recreation in a negative way.  Balancing life with a TR job is important and Imagine Therapies, LLC in San Antonio, TX is creating an opportunity for the TR professional to live their best life by working as a contractor.  In this breakout session, TR professionals will examine their own lives with regard to work and free time as well as learn ways to balance and find new alternatives to allow for a balanced lifestyle and have an overall improved quality of life.

2019 ATRA Annual Conference Webinar: CARTE Accreditation: Implications for the RT Practitioner



OVERVIEWThe Committee on Accreditation of Recreational Therapy Education (CARTE) provides academic program accreditation in recreational therapy (RT) as part of the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Programs (CAAHEP).  As such, conversations surrounding CARTE often focus on issues related to higher education programs and systems, RT educators, and RT students.  However, RT program accreditation is also aligned with the healthcare environment and workforce, and can have a significant impact on professional practice.  Therefore, it is important for RT practitioners to also be aware of and understand CARTE accreditation. This session will provide an overview of CARTE accreditation and highlight implications for the RT profession overall, and the RT practitioner specifically.
