What is Diversional Therapy? Diversional Therapy is a type of client centered leisure based occupation. The main target of this kind of therapy is to enhance the quality of life through development and support of clients’ physical, social, spiritual, emotional and psychological requirements.

The Therapist gives their clients the ability to participate in recreation and leisure activities which enhance personal satisfaction and self-esteem. Developing the right recreational program can help with decision making, client choice, and participation. Activity ideas should be are tailored to the specific requirements of individual or group to get the maximum individual satisfaction and enjoyment.

  • Creative activities and games with an amazing result.
  • Tactics that help with mood swings, orientation as well as memory.
  • Encourage Socialization, Expression, and Communication.
  • Permitting clients to do things within their own abilities.
  • Providing meaning and purpose to life through involvement and activity.

The therapist works with a person in order to get the positive health results by including leisure activities in their lifestyles. The activities are quite diverse and may vary from:

  • Spiritual, cultural and social activities
