To develop educational and experiential programs to address rehabilitation of trauma victims through the use of evidence-based recreational services and expand the understanding of issues surrounding post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and other physical, emotional and cognitive conditions connected with trauma. Workshops that include research and training are offered to professionals and volunteers in recreational activities to insure the safety and well-being of participants who benefit from these programs as a part of their rehabilitation and therapy.
W.A.T.E.R.S. is not a recreational therapy provider. We are an education and training organization dedicated to the idea of raising the quality of the organizations that serve victims of trauma. In addition, we are committed to raising the level of education of professionals and volunteers who wish to serve this vulnerable population, especially in the area of recreational services as a component of therapy.
