Description

By David L. Jewell, College at Brockport emeritus faculty member.

This text will be helpful to students in becoming clinically conversant prior to the fieldwork, practicum, or internship experience across the spectrum of clinical areas, including mental retardation/developmental disabilities, mental health services, and physical medicine/rehabilitation services. The text will also be useful as an instructional aid to agency in-service personnel in their efforts to assist new hires in becoming conversant in the language of the work setting, regardless of their professional affiliations or roles within the treatment setting. It consists of terms, abbreviations, and symbols that have been identified by numerous clinical services administrators and practitioners and which will help students not only to recognize the terms in their written form but also to provide for their correct pronunciation. The worksheets are designed to assist college faculty and in-service training personnel in their instructional missions. This requires that the students define terms and abbreviations as well as demonstrate their ability to apply the contents of the text in a clinical practice context. The text should be a useful resource to the emerging professionals in Therapeutic Recreation and the other activity therapies as they progress through the course of their careers as caregivers.
