More than ever before, landscape architects, garden designers, and healthcare professionals are asked to create gardens that meet the physical, psychological, emotional, and social needs of a wide range of user groups.
Landscape architect Daniel Winterbottom and occupational therapist Amy Wagenfeld present a collaborative approach that successfully translates the principles of therapeutic design into practice. Using examples from around the world, this practical guide demonstrates how gardens can support learning, movement, reconciliation, and memorialization, as well as improve physical and psychological health.
