RHDS 450 - Action-Oriented Therapies

This course provides an opportunity to examine, discuss, and experience several of the action-oriented therapies currently in use in many rehabilitation facilities serving physically disabled adults, exceptional children, and geriatric patients. Action-oriented therapies employ nonverbal modes of interacting including, games, drama, free play, movement, music, art, or other activities. Students explore these as therapeutic modalities in which many conflicts are resolved. Emphasis is on the use of these techniques to enhance intellectual and emotional functioning for more effective independent living and rehabilitation.
