There is a useful book in our collection:
CHCLAH001 Work Effectively in the leisure and health industries - Learner Guide.
Topic 2D - Seek information for professional development and further training options is on Page 75.

The following professional bodies in Australia support the Professional Development of workers in the leisure and recreation industries:

Diversional and Recreational Therapy Australia

Open the Professional Development Guide - http://diversionaltherapy.org.au/Portals/0/Documents/A%20Guide%20to%20Professional%20Development%20Points.pdf

There are examples of informal learning in the Diversional Therapy Practice section; while the DT Professional Education section gives examples of formal learning.


Occupational Therapy Board of Australia

Occupational Therapy Board of Australia - Guidelines on Continuing Professional Development:
