Psychosocial Conceptual Practice Models in Occupational Therapy Book Description :

This book examines the occupational therapy paradigm (its focal viewpoint, core constructs, and values) as well as the role of complexity/chaos theory as a scientific framework for occupational therapy research and practice. Unlike other current OT texts, this book uses clinical case examples to illustrate application of proposed changes to make procedures consistent with the latest Occupational Therapy Practice Framework. The reader walks away with a clear grasp of the theoretical principles guiding his or her treatment interventions, the explanations behind those principles, and the applicable intervention for said techniques and procedures. An emphasis on clinical-reasoning skills, including information on different types of reasoning skills as well as the MAPP model of teaching helps the student and clinician translate theoretical principles into practice. The section on specific interventions addresses each of the conceptual practice models according to a consistent chapter template, which enables the reader to apply conceptual practice models in real-world contexts. Preview questions at the beginning of each chapter alert the reader to important concepts in the upcoming text. Critical analysis of the theoretical core provides suggested modifications to increase consistency with the new occupational therapy paradigm.

Psychosocial Occupational Therapy E Book Book Description :

Develop the psychosocial skills you need to treat clients with any diagnosis in any setting! Psychosocial Occupational Therapy uses evidence-based models to help you provide effective Occupational Therapy for people diagnosed with mental health conditions. With a clear and logical organization, the book begins with theories and concepts and follows with in-depth coverage of OT interventions in both individual and group contexts. Case studies and models show how to apply the newest Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (OTPF) in selecting treatment strategies. Written by OT educator Nancy Carson, Psychosocial Occupational Therapy helps you understand and treat clients with mental health issues. UNIQUE! At least two cases studies in each clinical chapter show how to apply the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (OTPF) in determining treatment options, and one or more conceptual models address the psychosocial needs of clients. Using the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework chapter describes how to apply the latest version of the OTPF to the practice of occupational therapy. Balanced approach to psychosocial occupational therapy includes thorough coverage of primary diagnoses, as well as occupational and psychosocial theories, models, and approaches. Emphasis on clinical reasoning skills provides insights on how to select treatment strategies based on the conceptual theories and models presented in the earlier chapters; the information on diagnoses also references the DSM-5. A focus on psychosocial skills makes it easier to adjust your way of approaching a client, the nature of the therapeutic relationship, and the direction and eventual outcomes of intervention — regardless of the setting or the primary diagnosis. Coverage of therapeutic interaction skills and group process skills shows how to provide treatment in both individual and group settings.

Occupational Therapies without Borders Volume 2 E Book Book Description :

The companion text to Occupational Therapy without Borders - Volume 1: learning from the spirit of survivors! In this landmark text writers from around the world discuss a plurality of occupation-based approaches that explicitly acknowledge the full potential of the art and science of occupational therapy. The profession is presented as a political possibilities-based practice, concerned with what matters most to people in real life contexts, generating practice-based evidence to complement evidence-based practice. As these writers demonstrate, occupational therapies are far more than, as some critical views have suggested, a monoculture of practice rooted in Western modernity. Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu captures the ethos of this book, which essentially calls for engagements in the service of a purpose that is larger than the advancement of our profession's interests: "Your particular approach to advancing our wellbeing and health strikes me as both unique and easily taken for granted. Whilst you value and work with medical understandings, your main aim seems to go beyond these. You seem to enable people to appreciate more consciously how what we do to and with ourselves and others on a daily basis impacts on our individual and collective wellbeing. As occupational therapists you have a significant contribution to make [.] allowing people from all walks of life to contribute meaningfully to the wellbeing of others." Links philosophy with practical examples of engaging people in ordinary occupations of daily life as a means of enabling them to transform their own lives Includes contributions from worldwide leaders in occupational therapy research and practice Describes concrete initiatives in under-served and neglected populations Looks at social and political mechanisms that influence people’s access to useful and meaningful occupation Chapters increase diversity of contributions – geographically, culturally and politically Emphasis on practice, educatio
