Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book provides a good starting point for the development of a more complex understanding of activity analysis that holds occupation as the central component. It is aimed at students and new practitioners,
but would have relevance to all levels of clinicians seeking to develop occupationally focused practice." (British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 1 January 2012)
