From the Editor-in-Chief: Looking forward




recreational therapy, evidence-based practice


I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Allison Wilder for her dedicated service to our profession during her tenure as Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Recreational Therapy (AJRT). I chose to take on the leadership role in AJRT following the retirement of Dr. Wilder, who had assumed the position after Dr. Richardson who accepted the position after the passing of Dr. Linda Buettner, the journal's founding Editor-in-Chief and a significant driving force behind its establishment.

Each of my predecessors played a pivotal role in shaping AJRT into its current form as a reputable scholarly journal for recreational therapy research and evidence-based practice information. Under their guidance, AJRT has become a sought-after resource for recreational therapists, educators, and students seeking up-to-date information on research and practice in our field. I am honored to have continued the legacy of Dr. Wilder, Dr. Buettner and Dr. Richardson, further solidifying AJRT's position in our profession.
