Operationalizing the Health Protection/Health Promotion model using taxonomies

Sarah Burnett-Wolle, PhD

Abstract


The Leisure Ability model continues to be the pervasive framework used to guide the provision of recreation therapy, yet it is flawed in several respects. Several alternatives have been proposed as replacements, including the Health Protection/Health Promotion (HP/HP) model. However, the HP/HP model has not been widely adopted. One reason the HP/HP model has languished is uncertainty regarding how to promote clients’ growth. Although the model clearly states that clients have two primary needs (stability and actualization), it does not indicate how to address them. This article will suggest one method for operationalizing the HP/HP model, using taxonomies to clarify clients’ goals and objectives. Four examples, one taxonomy for each domain of health, will be presented and implications for program planning will be discussed. To facilitate the use of taxonomies in program planning, a short excerpt of a specific program design will be provided. Finally, although the HP/HP model does not expressly include leisure education and recreation participation, a method for reconciling these services will also be discussed. The overall intent is to make the HP/HP model a more accessible guide to program planning and, ultimately, to design more effective interventions.
