1. Montoya, Natalie. Use of Evidence-Based Practice in Recreational Therapy Programs for Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorder (SSD) Recovery: A Descriptive Study.

Degree: MS, Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, 2018, Clemson University

Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorder (SSD) is a mental illness that currently has no cure, however, with the use of pharmaceutical and psychosocial treatments, such as Recreational Therapy (RT), symptoms can be managed. RT provides services for individuals with SSD to improve their quality of life by incorporating leisure interests and individual needs into treatment. By utilizing evidence-based practices, such as the Mental Health Recovery Model and recommendations by the Schizophrenia Patient Outcome Research Team (PORT), RT treatment has the possibility to provide more efficient and beneficial treatment in various settings for individuals with SSD. This research study utilized a cross-sectional survey to identify if Recreational Therapists are utilizing evidence-based practices, specifically the Mental Health Recovery Model principles and PORT recommendations, into treatment services for individuals with SSD. Data was collected, analyzed, and reported from 126 surveys completed by RTs that currently or have previously provided treatment for individuals with SSD. Quantitative data revealed that a majority of the participants utilize the Mental Health Recovery Model principles and PORT recommendations into RT treatment. Qualitative data supported the quantitative results by demonstrating how the principles and recommendations are utilized in practice through examples provided by participants.

2. Hooker, Taylor. Equine Assisted Programs for Military Service Members: A Program Evaluation Using Importance-Performance Analysis.

Degree: MS, Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, 2018, Clemson University

Developing research, anecdotal evidence and a growing focus on non-pharmacological interventions for veterans with post-traumatic stress support the use equine-therapy as a therapeutic outlet; however, programmatic factors that contribute to veteran’s desire to attend such programs are under-investigated. Furthermore, evaluative processes in equine therapy for this particular population are scare and vary greatly from program to program. The use of the Importance-Performance Analysis (IPA) tool when applied to social services yields direct, applicable feedback of program success and relevancy. In this study, interviews with the selected population informed the evaluation tool used to assess the importance, and subsequent performance, of various program factors in a national military-specific equine therapy program. Results of this study provided insight into key factors being sought after in similar equine therapy programs to inform the development and maintenance of programs serving the veteran population. The application of the IPA, a consumer feedback tool typically reserved for market research, to the health and human services sector provided a new pathway for quality assurance and program analysis for the equine therapy field.
