The purpose of this study was to expand on the limited body of knowledge that exists on motivation and therapeutic alliance for recreational therapy programs. This study examined motivation with youth living with behavioral problems (BP) in an inpatient setting. In order to identify the type of motivation patients had for recreational therapy the Client Motivation for Therapy Scale (CMOTS) was utilized. The Working Alliance Inventory- Short form (WAI-S) was used to identify the therapeutic alliance between patients and recreational therapist. The researcher found that intrinsic motivation and therapeutic alliance were positively correlated.
