"Horticultural Therapy Methods: Making Connections in Health Care, Human Service, and Community Programs" details the basics of the growing, time- proven practice of therapy through gardening. Experienced practitioners and educators discuss horticultural therapy theory, application, and the impressive positive impact it has on clients. Beginners are educated on key issues and learn the skills needed to effectively treat clients.
