Serious Leisure as an Alternative to a Work Career for People with Disabilities

Written Material

Patterson identifies the positive feelings of self-esteem, identity, pleasure and self-fulfilment which are produced by the opportunity to be employed in a productive job. He argues that similar benefits can be achieved through 'serious leisure', and identifies the different forms serious leisure can take, as well as distinguishing serious leisure from casual leisure. Patterson believes that serious leisure should be considered as a viable option for those people with disabilities and high support needs who are denied access to the workplace.
