Preparations for the 2017 NLTRA conference and AGM are underway and the organizing committee is currently accepting presentation proposals. We would encourage anyone who is potentially interested in presenting to submit the enclosed presentation proposal form.
Based on evaluation of previous conferences, participants are interested in sessions focusing on Therapeutic Recreation Services in client population areas such as mental health and addictions, frail elderly/dementia care, palliative care and therapeutic recreation, and child life. We are also seeking presentations on health promotion, population health, and connecting us to community opportunities. Other topics of interest include advancement of the profession, new program ideas, assessment, NLTRA issues, licensure, technology and music/art therapy, pediatrics, and inspirational stories.
Our theme, “Getting on TRack: Gaining Momentum, Working Together” should generate a wide selection of presentation ideas and we hope that you will take this opportunity to share your valued information with others.
