Description
The LATIS Forum on Therapeutic Landscapes discusses the practice of creating landscapes to support human health and well-being.

Successful designs and the process to create them vary according to the special needs of user groups. Readers will learn how therapeutic landscapes provide benefits to all humans, both in clinical and institutional settings and in the matrix of everyday life.
