Rocznik: 2003 Tom: 9 Numer: 1
The necessity for up-to-date analysis of recreational activity of the youth is associated with the change in the living conditions of contemporary adolescents, as well as the political and technological changes in our country. Especially the latter create unknown till now recreational possibilities and cause changes in the way an individual works and studies; what is more, they cause transformations as far as leisure is concerned. In the article, the recreational behaviors are analyzed as the outer expression of deeper situated, psychological meaning of recreational involvement. This activity has an instrumental character and serves the individual to achieve certain psychological and/or psychophysiological benefits (consequences). The experience of benefits while being involved in a particular type of activity takes place in a specific environmental context, which influences the likelihood of defining a given situation as recreational. Basing on L.A.Raymore's conception of leisure facilities, the intra and interpersonal and structural correlates of the environmental preferences and recreational behaviors of the youth are considered.
