Book Description

25 Jun 1996
A comprehensive text on the provision of recreation services for elders, Leisure in Later Life, Second Edition lucidly presents theoretical material and practical applications that will benefit a wide variety of professionals, students, and volunteers. This helpful, newly updated volume features vastly revised chapters, totally new organization, and a helpful Instructor's Manual. Readers will find it works as a comprehensive text for university-level courses in designing leisure and recreation services for elders.

Published for the first time in 1986, the new Leisure in Later Life, Second Edition is still the best choice for:
  • a basic textbook for students in college and university courses dealing specifically with the topics of leisure and aging
  • a supplementary textbook for courses in the psychology of aging, social work with elders, health in the later years, therapeutic recreation, adapted physical education, and courses in principles of recreation leadership and programming
  • a reference text for field work and practicum students working with elders

    Authors Michael J. and Sara F. Leitner examine the foundations of recreation services for elders, detail recreation leadership principles, describe the skills needed for program planning and evaluation, and explore a variety of settings where these services can be provided, noting specific needs for each setting. Chapters prepare students to work with elders in any setting, describe a myriad of activities in detail, and cover special issues such as sexuality in later life.
