Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anita Nelson Niehues, MS, OTR/L(Univ of Illinois at Chicago Coll of Associated Health Professions)
Description: This new book presents a comprehensive look at the use of activity in occupational therapy. It includes the history of activity, theoretical principles for its use, and perspective on the continuing value of activity applied by competent professionals.
Purpose: The purpose is to explore the relationship among activities used in occupational therapy, the evolution of activities as survival tools, and the value of activities to children and adults as they fulfill their roles in society. As occupational therapy continues to develop and expand in meeting the needs of clients, this is a valuable text that leads students and therapists through the history of activity to the present use of activity as therapists attempt to meet the present needs of society.
Audience: Students of occupational therapy will find this book useful for its historical perspective as well as for its step-by-step instruction in a variety of activities from folkcraft to industry and technology. Practicing therapists will appreciate the reminders of the value of competently applied activities and for the appendixes providing comprehensive listings of tools and equipment and sources of supplies for a broad range of activities. Both audiences will benefit from the extensive activity analysis forms provided. The author is a recognized authority on activity and the art and science of its application in occupational therapy.
Features: The book includes detailed instructions for a broad spectrum of useful activities. Line drawings, illustrative photographs, and appendixes will assist the student as well as the experienced occupational therapist.
Assessment: This is a very useful book for students and practitioners in occupational therapy. It provides a theoretical base for the use of activity that is demonstrated both historically and in the face of today's constantly evolving practice of occupational therapy.
