Diversional Therapy Week – 5th – 11th May 2014

Shaping Diversional Therapy: from Theory to Practice

Diversional Therapy Australia is a not for profit organisation solely built and dependent on ordinary members working tirelessly together in order to realise our vision. Our mission statement declares that:

Diversional Therapy Australia is
committed to promoting, fostering
and advancing the development of the
profession of Diversional Therapy in
Australia and internationally.

Diversional Therapy Week, first introduced in 1995, was developed to provide our members with an outlet to promote, foster and advance the development of the Diversional Therapy profession and the state DT Associations (now DTA nationally). Diversional Therapy Week aims to encourage you to educate your work peers and the wider communityabout who Diversional Therapists and Diversional Therapy Assistants are and what we do.

Celebrate and Educate!

How you choose to share your passion for Diversional Therapy is completely up to you, you may decide to use the material made available through Diversional Therapy Australia or develop your own Diversional Therapy Week program.

So let us all join together and do our part in promoting, fostering and advancing both our profession and our association well into the future.

A few ideas!

Put up that wonderful poster sent with this newsletter (print more copies from the file on the website if you need to)

Use the Powerpoint presentation developed by Kate Noble from the DTA Board to show to other staff members

Create a DT Week button or badge during a craft activity for all diversional therapy staff to wear with pride!

Consider organising an Information Afternoon Tea (let the office know to get extra support maybe even a Board member to attend if they can)

Use DTA post it notes and DTA pens and buy a DTA vest to help make your point!

Get a copy of the DTA Mission Statement Poster and get it up on the wall

Let us know how you celebrated and educated! Best new idea wins a prize! – The EdBy Kayla Davies
