The proliferation of digital technologies and the evolution of assistive technologies, virtual spaces, and new forms of leisure engagement raise key questions about the changing nature of therapeutic recreation and social justice. These varied technologies have the potential to benefit marginalized individuals and communities, but they may also be challenging and problematic. ICTs, therefore, have implications for therapeutic recreation (TR) professionals, educators, students, and researchers. The purpose of this special issue of the Therapeutic Recreation Journal (TRJ), therefore, is to critically explore opportunities and challenges associated with integrating technology in TR practice, education, and research.
TRJ is seeking manuscripts that address innovative uses and critical reflections upon a wide variety of technologies in therapeutic recreation. Manuscripts that address technology in research, education, and/or practice perspectives are highly encouraged. Additionally, qualitative, quantitative, and conceptual approaches are equally encouraged.
