Are We Really Satisfying People's Needs?

Gordon Walker

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?
