Booknews
A therapy "field book" for occupational therapists, with many activities involving collaboration with clients, colleagues, and other allied health and medical professionals. Unit I offers step-by-step instructions on how to use Creative Problem Solving (CPS), a mental model for examining many choices in order to determine a solution. Unit II applies this process to real-life cases. Incorporates numerous activities in workbook-style pages, with space for results, reflective journal entries, and "mind map" drawings, as well as cooperative group experiences, sample plans, and exercises designed to develop thinking strategies. Includes an appendix of blank forms. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
