Diversional Therapist From Victoria, Australia

Noriko 23rd Apr 2010 Diversional Therapist

I completed my diploma of community services (lifestyle and leisure) at the end of last year, and have worked as a Diversional Therapist in Dementia and Mental Health Unit in a nursing home in Melbourne. Now I have made up my mind to quit because what the management and Registered Nurses expect me is really diverting residents' attention from their needs - even from physical pain!
I am eligible to join Diversional Therapists Association of Australia, but I don't want to be called a Diversional Therapist again.
