Paper from the 2nd International Therapeutic Recreation Conference. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects of a leisure education program using values clarification strategies upon leisure attitudes, leisure satisfaction, and the perceptions of freedom in leisure of adults with traumatic brain injury. It was hypothesized that subjects who received a planned leisure education program using directed values clarification activities and guided recreation experiences would a) develop more positive attitudes toward leisure, b) experience greater satisfaction in leisure, and c) perceive greater freedom in leisure than subjects who participated in informal discussion sessions.
