President of the New Zealand Society of Diversional and Recreational Therapists

Mosher and Zhang (2024) found that having fun is beneficial to individuals’ physical and psychological health. However, access to fun recreational activities, in some cases, requires a holistic approach alongside a tailored support for people of different ages, lifestyles, backgrounds, and abilities.
Join us for an informative evening webinar to explore the benefits of Diversional and Recreational Therapy for yourself, and your clients, and how you can incorporate social prescription recreational activities into client’s care plans.
