What is a Community of Practice?

TRO’s purpose in developing a Mental Health Community of Practice (CoP) is to create a resource where Recreation Therapists who are working in a similar setting can gather to promote best practice, share ideas, and develop resources.

The Communities of Practice meet virtually once every quarter. Meetings are led by a TRO Member but meetings are open to everyone and anyone to attend.
