Overview

New Frontiers in Psychosocial Occupational Therapy explores plans and processes to improve patient care through enhanced therapist/patient relationships and strong alliances with mental health advocate groups. Practitioners will find valuable suggestions and ideas for offering quality, cost-efficient services while therapy educators will gain insight into the changing health care environment. Containing articles written by therapists, students, patients, and occupational therapy educators, New Frontiers in Psychosocial Therapy will help you offer or teach services that take patients’needs directly into consideration. New Frontiers in Psychosocial Occupational Therapy examines advances in the field and provides you with information about current mental health care trends at the national, state, and local levels. This book discusses, for example, how programs in Kentucky, California, Wisconsin, and New York offer excellent care and less costly services and promote practitioner/patient relationships. Offering many opportunities to stimulate new approaches to practice, New Frontiers in Psychosocial Occupational Therapy will give you insight into specific ways to improve services, such as:

  • recommending strategies for overcoming barriers to professional and personal security in the changing health care system by managing feelings, promoting the social contract in health care, and acquiring skills that transcend medical necessity
  • developing relationships with consumer groups and listening more closely to consumer needs
  • giving patients advice on the advantages and detriments of disclosing or not disclosing a disability to an employer
  • integrating consumer needs into psychiatric rehabilitation programs through empowerment principles
  • using the Internet to receive information on memberships to organizations, books, conferences, medications, and research
  • increasing students’success as occupational therapists by educating them on reimbursement issues, legal and political systems, marketing strategies, and advocacy roles
  • using Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) to help students assess their progress and practice concerns

    New Frontiers in Psychosocial Occupational Therapy features several students’personal accounts of their fieldwork experiences and how they overcame the fear of inadequacy, learned additional procedural skills in occupational therapy assessment, became comfortable with group leadership, and, as a result, learned the importance of patient/practitioner relationships as they relate to improved services. Combining present programs and future implications, New Frontiers in Psychosocial Occupational Therapy will assist you in instituting changes to programs that will meet the growing needs of your patients or students.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathi Brennaman Baron, MS, OTR/L(Univ of Illinois at Chicago Coll of Associated Health Professions)
Description: This text describes the current state of occupational therapy in mental health, including an examination of the issues confronted by occupational therapists and a reporting of initiatives various pioneers in the field are taking to deliver services.
Purpose: The editor's intent is to provide a guide for insuring the survival of occupational therapy in the 21st century. Her objectives are: to imagine new frontiers for occupational therapists, via knowledge of past successes and failures; to look at new frontiers from various perspectives, including practice, education, technology, organizational/societal change, and local/state advocacy; to recognize opportunities for delivering innovative practice; and finally, to assume leadership and partnership roles with consumers and other professionals.
Audience: The book is written for students, occupational therapy practitioners (in mental health), and educators. It could possibly be used to market occupational therapy to other professionals and to consumers.
Features: This is a guide for working as an occupational therapist in mental health. New funding streams, innovative practices, development of partnerships, and collaborating with consumers are all explored. A discussion on education and fieldwork in this area of practice is also included. The strategies used by pioneers are especially useful to current day practitioners.
Assessment: The text is of high quality, with a current assessment of occupational therapy's place within a changing, chaotic, and dysfunctional healthcare system. Issues faced by clinicians are discussed and the area of practice is clarified for students. The importance of viewing oneself as an entrepreneur rather than a victim is stressed, and a guide for achieving this is provided.
