Editor’s notes

Hawkins, Barbara A

From time to time, the Editor in conjunction with the TRJ Editorial Board determine that the profession can receive direct benefit from the publication of papers on special topics. During this year the TRJ Editorial Board approved the publication of papers that present contemporary research methods with particular relevance to therapeutic recreation theory development, applied research, and exemplary practice. In this issue of TRJ three such papers appear. Judi Voelkl and Cheryl Baldwin provide a paper that reviews daily experience research methodology with applications in therapeutic recreation. Next, Bryan McCormick discusses the relevance of case study research in therapeutic recreation. Finally, John Dattilo, David Gast, David Loy, and Sharon Malley focus on the use of single subject design as an appropriate and useful approach in TR research and practice. Each of these three papers is intended to provide practitioner and scholar with important methodological background information as well as exemplars from TR research. We are indebted to these scholars for their contributions to the Therapeutic Recreation Journal.
