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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Because this book is clearly written and specifically spells out the components of an activity analysis, I believe it to be a very useful addition to the occupational therapy literature and well worth the listed price. The fact that the authors have chosen to link the language of their templates to the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework enhances its usefulness for current practice.”

--Jeffrey M. Lederer, PhD, OTR/L, Spalding University Occupational Therapy in Healthcare
