Abstract

This edition presents a theo­retical foundation for the idea of occupation, framed within histori­cal and current practice and devel­oped from within the occupational therapy profession. Using language from the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework and from the ICF, updated chapters detail aspects of occupation such as activity analysis, activity synthesis, and clinical reasoning and explore how to apply activity across various settings.

Numerous case examples guide readers through the intervention process, providing clear, practical examples of activity-based occupational therapy. Exercises challenge students and practitioners to consider their own biases and perspectives, the unique set of circumstances that each client presents, and the most appropriate interven­tion strategy. Students and experienced practitioners alike can use this important resource to further develop their understanding of occupation, better articulate its complex nature, and apply its principles in the clinic.
