Course Description:
This course is based on an article published on the Lifestyle Information Network (LIN) website about making friends within inclusive community recreation programs. It is a short look at the phenomena of friendship as it pertains to individuals with disabilities who are participating with non-disabled peers. The article defines social inclusion and friendship, and discusses the importance of friendship in relation to inclusion and quality of life. This article is designed for assisting disabled youth to make friends; however it is useful for clinicians in assisting clients as they establish new friendships, which is a cornerstone of change for clients at many stages in life. This course is designed for clinicians who work with children and adolescents, though it will be illuminating for clinicians who work adults. 

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as dieticians and nutritionists who work with adolescents and a diverse client base.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to improve their clinical skills.
