For horticultural therapy to be most effective, activities must be structured so a client's progress can be clearly measured and assessed. Using a variety of activities, develop a needs assessment and activity plan, write specific goals with measurable objectives, and practice leadership skills needed to work with groups and individuals. Please bring lunch. Prerequisite: Horticultural Therapy for Physical Rehabilitation (or approval of the Program Coordinator)
