This book is used as a reference and a guide for students, educators, and those conducting horticultural therapy or therapeutic horticulture to guide them in constructing effective treatment programs. Health care and human service professionals use the reference in the therapy, treatment, and education of inmates, residents, patients, trainees, students, and other participants.
Horticultural therapy has evolved from its use only by volunteer gardeners to become a recognised and respected therapeutic modality conducted by trained, registered professionals. Horticultural Therapy Methods is the first textbook to describe the processes and techniques used to provide horticultural therapy interventions and the rationale for their use. This book presents types of programs, settings, and goals in horticultural therapy. It outlines treatment planning; development of sessions to meet treatment objectives; motivation and behaviour management techniques; documentation guidelines; practical approaches for wellness; and resources for activity ideas.
