Are We Really Satisfying People's Needs?
This presentation from the 2011 Alberta Recreation and Parks Annual Conference and Energize Workshop addresses:
- What exactly “is” a need?
- Which needs are basic or “core”?
- What events satisfy people’s core needs?
- What effect does need satisfaction have on people’s subjective well-being (SWB)?
- How can this information be used in practice? For example, can we as recreation practitioners facilitate satisfaction of our clients’ needs?
