Webinar Practice 1 with ATRA Guests
This is a free webinar session designed for participation with guests from the Therapeutic Recreation profession.
Please only register if you are a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist or student. This is a practice session. The goal is to further improve this presentation before it is live for PBS staff. The practice process is helpful for our presenters, and the input from fellow recreational therapists is valuable.
For these practice sessions, you will not be receiving the packets mentioned in the webinar. That is only for the PBS webinar participants on February 24th.
By RSVPing for this session you are stating you will attend this online webinar session.
One hour before the session begins, you will receive a link with an invitation to join a Zoom session, to participate in this webinar.
The webinar itself is expected to take only about 30-45 minutes. Then there will be a Q&A and session feedback period after. The entire session should only take you about 1 hour.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the webinar begins.
If you have any accessibility needs, trouble joining, or do not find an invitation link to the Zoom session within 1 hour of the session beginning, please:
