What is Diversional Therapy?
Diversional therapy is a client centred practice and recognises that leisure and recreational experiences are the right of all individuals.
Diversional therapy practitioners work with people of all ages and abilities to design and facilitate leisure and recreation programmes. Activities are designed to support, challenge and enhance the psychological, spiritual, social, emotional and physical wellbeing of individuals.
The Diversional Therapist provides opportunities where individuals may choose to participate in leisure and recreation activities which promote self-esteem and personal fulfilment. The Diversional Therapist facilitates individual client choice, decision making and participation when developing and managing recreational programmes.
