Critical analysis of leisure program

Critically analyse an individual or group leisure program provided from within the facility or context in which you work (do not use any identifying names) In undertaking the analysis provide the following information:
a. Briefly describe the individual or group
b. Identify the rationale as to why the program has been developed in the way it has (i.e. why has it been developed). Identify the assumptions that underpin the rationale that underpin the program. Discuss the ways in which these assumptions relate to bio-medical or functionalist models of health. Identify whether other assumptions or values underpin the program (e.g. relational, social, narrative etc). Discuss how these other assumptions may be evident. If these are absent identify why they are absent and if possible how they might be incorporated into the program rationale.
c. Provide a summary of the assessment process (E.e. interview, observation, questionnaire, interview with family members, life history, narrative, medical reports, other). Again analyse the assumptions that underpin each element of the assessment process. Are these assumptions more grounded in biomedical or social models of health and identity. Propose how assessment may be modified to challenge dominant assumptions. Pay close attention to the role of communicative interpretation of non-verbal behaviour if possible.
d. Identify whether the program objectives and goals are concerned with functional or identity outcomes. Discuss how the program may be further developed to incorporate identity (social/ relational) outcomes.
e. Discuss how the program is currently evaluated and the assumptions that underpin the evaluation. Identify how evaluation may be extended to incorporate a social/relational model

Write your critical analysis as an essay. Ensure you fully reference and include a clear introduction and conclusion.
