Description : To respond to the renewed focus by the occupational therapy profession upon occupation, the fifth edition of Activity Analysis and Application has been updated and renamed to reflect this latest emphasis. While Activity Analysis: Application to Occupation, Fifth Edition maintains the sequential process of learning activity analysis, this step-by-step approach now helps students analyze activity for the purpose of optimizing the client's occupational performance. Gayle Hersch, Nancy Lamport, and Margaret Coffey successfully guide students through the development of clinical reasoning skills critical to planning a client's return to meaningful engagement in valued occupations. The authors utilize a straightforward teaching approach that allows students to progress developmentally in understanding both the analysis and application of activity to client intervention. The Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, with a prominent focus on occupation as this profession's philosophical basis for practice, has been incorporated in the updated forms and explanations of the activity analysis approach. Activity Analysis: Application to Occupation, Fifth Edition is a worthy contribution to the professional education of occupational therapists in furthering their understanding and application of activity and occupation. Features: The newly titled Client-Activity Intervention Plan that synthesizes the activity analysis into client application. Objectives at the beginning of each unit. Discussion questions and examples of daily life occupations. A Web site including 5 forms where students and practitioners can download and print information for class assignments and clinical settings.

Description : Powerful Occupational Therapists examines the life and times of a small group of occupational therapy leaders and scholars in a post-1950s America, to market their profession as one of increasing importance. Participating in the 1950s rehabilitation, the 1960s equal rights, and the 1970s women’s movements, these innovators, being primarily women, aimed to define themselves as having professional and scientific authority that was distinct from the male-dominated medical model. The community of therapists faced challenges such as that of retaining the appearance of being "ladylike" whilst doing "unladylike" tasks. This book describes the personal experiences of 12 differing occupational therapists and it identifies how a group of them strengthened and developed the profession in the face of diverse challenges. This volume would be of interest to those studying occupational therapy, women and medicine and the history of medicine. This book was originally published as a special issue of Occupational Therapy in Mental Health.

Description : Learn how occupational therapists with requisite knowledge, skills, and creativity can make significant contributions to injury and accident prevention, to health child and adolescent development, to healthy adult adaptation and aging, and to health promotion in many areas of life. In response to the call for occupational therapists to extend their services to new areas of practice, this timely book addresses some of the topics associated with developing and implementing preventive and health promotion services. Leading authorities examine the costs and economic factors associated with health care, discuss marketing strategies for occupational therapy services, make recommendations to facilitate development of occupational therapy services in wellness and health promotion, and highlight new models of practice, including one that extends traditional mental health occupational therapy services from the hospital into the community and another that creates new forms of services for health promotion and injury prevention in an industrial setting. An annotated bibliography includes reviews and efficacy studies exploring the potential benefits of exercise on physical and mental health. Although occupational therapists have a unique body of knowledge and skills that generally address the occupational, emotional, social, intellectual, and physical dimensions of their patients, the editors and contributing authors to Occupational Therapy: Program Development for Health Promotion and Preventive Services advocate the importance of acquiring additional information--and even advanced education--before assuming responsibility for preventive or health promotion programs.
