Overview


Updated and expanded into a comprehensive Third Edition, Crafts and Creative Media in Therapy emphasizes the importance of the use of crafts in therapy and rehabilitation and summarizes the most current research regarding their benefits.

Carol Tubbs has expanded and renamed Margaret Drake’s Crafts in Therapy and Rehabilitation to provide basic instructions for a wide array of crafts and additional project ideas, information on populations for whom the activities might be appropriate, adaptation and grading of the activities, methods of documentation to better assure reimbursement, and examples of how these activities are relevant to common models of practice. With the focus remaining on the therapeutic aspects of crafts, the concept of “media” has been added to this third edition to include creative endeavors such as expressive and technological media that are not traditionally considered to be crafts.

The selection of activities covered in Crafts and Creative Media in Therapy, Third Edition has been updated to reflect current community trends regarding individuals’ engagement in crafts and other creative media, while simultaneously promoting the value of an occupation-based approach to treatment, which includes the use of these media. Tips for clinical reasoning in choosing crafts are included. This best-selling and renowned book has also been updated to coincide with the AOTA’s Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, and it includes appendices for many additional resources.

Each Craft Category Includes:
• Key terms, tools, and supplies
• General instructions
• Precautions/special considerations
• Therapeutic application for various populations
• Ways to use the activity for assessment
• Ways to grade
• A case study
• Discussion questions
• Related activities/ideas

Crafts and Creative Media in Therapy, Third Edition is a quick reference for occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, students, activity directors, and recreational therapists looking to increase their knowledge of the therapeutic power of crafts.
