RESEARCH AND REHABILITATION: FROM PILOT TO PUBLICATION
Developing research remains a priority in the field of horticultural therapy and serves to help explore theory, describe mechanisms of influence, and evaluate programs and outcomes. Here we explore three case studies exemplifying different approaches to evaluating people-plant interactions in a physical rehabilitation setting. Conceptualization issues, design and methodology considerations, and recommendations for manuscript preparation are covered, mindful of concerns for the horticultural therapy practitioner.
