This engaging, user-friendly text guides occupational practitioners and students toward creatively designing and implementing occupation-based interventions for people with disabilities. The book covers the three primary proficiencies: understanding occupation in context, developing design skills, and applying occupation in practice. This innovative approach focuses on the interactive process of designing client-centered interventions, building a bridge between occupational science, and its application in occupational therapy.


"After briefly looking over the book, it appears to be a great book for a basic OT theory course or intro course." -- Claudia Miller, MHS, OTR/L, Cincinnati State College, Cincinnati, Ohio

"This
is a good (very good!) text. It will help us introduce the
philosophical and theoretical notions of occupation (as process and
outcome) when students enter as freshmen and then continue to reinforce
these concepts throughout the time they are in the OT program." -- Jacquelyn Bolden, PhD, OTR/L, Florida A & M University,Tallahassee, Florida
