Review: There are some good suggestions in this book. However, the index in the paperback version has totally the wrong page numbers and is therefore of no use, you just need to flick through the book to find the relevant information, which is annoying when trying to look up particular things.

  • Waterstones The Core Concepts of Occupational Therapy

    Price: £21.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The profession of occupational therapy has a highly specialised language, but until now there have been no standard definitions of its key terms. Based on the work of the terminology project group of the European Network of Occupational Therapy in Higher Education (ENOTHE), this book selects and defines the core building blocks of occupational therapy theory. Consensus definitions of a wide range of terms are developed through an analysis of published definitions from around the world. Concepts with similar meanings are clustered into groups, and the clusters are then arranged into a conceptual map. The book provides an analysis of what each term means in common usage, how it is used in occupational therapy, and its implications for therapeutic practice. The conceptual framework that emerges represents an important contribution to the profession's understanding of the fundamental concepts of occupational therapy. The consensus definitions presented in this book will facilitate communication between professionals as well as with clients and others, and will be of interest to occupational therapy practitioners, students, educators and researchers.

  • Waterstones Antiracist Occupational Therapy

    Price: £24.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Social justice, inclusion, and person-centredness are the cornerstones of occupational therapy but despite this, the experiences and inequities faced by Black and minoritised populations in health and social care often go unseen and unattended in occupational therapy practice. This timely book provides a compendium of global insights into the inequities faced by Black and minoritised groups in health and social care and considers how key changes in occupational therapy practice and education can redress disparities. Each contributor is active in the occupational therapy community and is incredibly well placed to provide guidance and practical suggestions on how to create sustainable, antiracist practice and disrupt the current status quo. Invaluable to occupational therapy professional bodies, academics, and students alike, this expansive collection of voices is essential reading for those looking to redress the imbalance of power caused by racism.

  • Waterstones A Guide to the Formulation of Plans and Goals in Occupational Therapy

    Price: £31.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: This practical guide for occupational therapists introduces a tried and tested method for moving from assessment to intervention, by formulating plans and measurable goals using the influential Model of Human occupation (MOHO). Section 1 introduces the concept of formulation - where it comes from, what it involves, why it is important, and how assessment information can be guided by theoretical frameworks and organised into a flowing narrative. Section 2 provides specific instructions for constructing occupational formulations using the Model of Human Occupation. In addition, a radically new way for creating aspirational goals is introduced - based on a simple acronym - which will enable occupational therapists to measure sustained changes rather than single actions. Section 3 presents 20 example occupational formulations and goals, from a wide range of mental health, physical health and learning disability settings, as well as a prison service, and services for homeless people and asylum seekers. Designed for practising occupational therapists and occupational students, this is an essential introduction for all those who are looking for an effective way to formulate plans and goals based on the Model of Human Occupation.

  • Waterstones Essential Concepts of Occupation for Occupational Therapy

    Price: £29.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Essential Concepts of Occupation for Occupational Therapy is an accessible introduction to vital concepts in occupational science for the occupational therapy practitioner or student. It invites therapists to view and understand their clients differently | ??by using an 'occupational lens" to focus on the lives of their clients as everyday doers. It addresses the key questions at the heart of understanding humans as occupational beings: What do people typically do? And, where, when, how, why, and with whom do they do it? These questions organize the key concepts from occupational science that form the first chapters of this book, enabling therapists to better understand their clients | ??and enabling their clients to better understand the importance of occupation to their well-being. Additional chapters clearly describe how therapists can use occupation-based models to apply an expanded view of occupation and make evaluation and intervention more relevant and beneficial to their clients. A final chapter examines trends and lifestyle changes occurring in the 21st century to anticipate how these might impact future practice. Through use of engaging and thoughtful cases that illustrate many of the concepts, this guide will help practitioners clearly understand their clients as doers, while also providing enhanced ways for therapist to confidently apply these concepts in practice.
