Recreational Therapy, also know as Therapeutic Recreation, is a profession that contributes to the broad spectrum of health care through treatment, education, and the provision of adapted recreational opportunities. These areas are instrumental to improving and maintaining physical, cognitive, emotional, and social functioning, preventing secondary health conditions, as well as enhancing independent living skills and overall quality of life. The goal of the FIU Recreational Therapy Program is “to prepare competent entry-level recreational therapists in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.” Students learn from faculty members who are all nationally certified and recreational therapists with many years of experience.
