Recreational therapists and other healthcare professionals serve a large and diverse variety of populations. All of these populations have very specific, individualized needs and goals. The designs of evidence based recreational therapy based interventions among these diverse populations are unique. However each healthcare professional and each recreational therapist does have one common issue that concerns the people they work with. That issue is COVID-19. Whatever setting recreational therapist work, there is this new common challenge that needs to be addressed, and new skills need to be created to adapt recreational therapy programs and be effective.

The goals of this online workshop will be to 1: introduce two evidence based RT interventions that may be used in recreational therapy program regardless of the setting. And 2: Create a space to practice the problem solving and adaptation skills needed to tackle the running RT programs during a pandemic.
