This book was written with the Recreation Therapist/Therapeutic Recreation specialist in mind, but the exercises work well with nursing, social work and other disciplines and designations.

There is a special appendix of information on TSI, by Ron Phillips, of New Zealand. TSI is an exceptional use of the written word and storytelling to assist youth with challenges.  My deepest thanks to Ron for this addition. and a very big thank you to Keith Chadwick of Living CBT for his permission to include some of his CBT forms.

This book will be your go-to manual for all things related to the written word.
