Overview

An Occupational Perspective of Health by Dr. Ann Wilcock has been a valuable resource in occupational therapy for more than eight years. Now available in an updated and much-anticipated Second Edition, this unique text will continue to address health from an occupational perspective, concentrating particularly on how occupation is integral to the experience of health or illness within populations. An Occupational Perspective of Health, Second Edition encourages occupational therapists and practitioners of public health to extend current thinking and practice to embrace the occupation for health needs of all people directly in line with directives from the World Health Organization (WHO). Based on extensive studies of human history, epidemiology, social and material development, and occupation, this text addresses the necessity for the global promotion of health and well-being through what people do on a daily basis, the meaning they experience from doing it, and whether or not they are able to aim toward maximizing their potential. This Second Edition embraces the physical, social, mental, environmental, and spiritual health outcomes that lead to or result from occupation and presents four approaches that require urgent attention, namely occupation-focused ecologically sustainable community development; justice; prevention of physical, mental, and social illness; and promotion of positive health and well-being.
