Overview


Written in a casual, narrative style, this edition has been updated with five new chapters, new case studies, new clinical stories, and discussion questions focusing on ethical, legal, and interpersonal issues. The text introduces students to the field of occupational therapy and to career opportunities in the field. Using clinical examples and case studies, this edition provides a realistic look at the complementary roles of the registered occupational therapist (OTR) and the certified occupational therapy assistant (COTA). Occupational Therapy: Principles and Practice illustrates the OT process within various practice settings, including the acute care hospital, public school, and home health practice. Other topics include current and prospective issues in the field, the U.S. health care system, influences/implications of managed care on the profession, and the international OT market. All charts/tables reflect current statistics.This edition differs significantly from the earlier edition by the addition of a second author, Professor Suzanne Peloquin, PhD, a recognized authority in her field. Dr. Peloquin recounts stories from occupational therapy history and offers unique insights into current practice.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Walker Peterson
This is the second edition of a textbook that describes the practice of occupational therapy (OT) on a fundamental level. It is intended to serve as a introduction to the field for students. The four sections of the book cover an overview of OT; descriptions of the arenas in which occupational therapists practice; descriptions of professional OT organizations along with current issues in, and projections for the future of, OT practice; and selected references. This book was written for students enrolled in two-year or four-year OT programs. To make the text useful to students in both professional and technical OT educational programs, the author successfully uses nontechnical language to clearly and thoroughly describe complex topics. The appendixes are useful references, although the glossary is not comprehensive. Realistic case studies are presented throughout the text. Their illustrative qualities bring clarity to the subjects described. Black-and-white photographs depicting occupational therapists at work are included at the beginning of each chapter. These photographs are of fair quality but lack explanatory captions. This work contains valuable information for OT students seeking a greater understanding of the field. The author's descriptions of OT history and practice are interesting, insightful, and relevant. This second edition includes up-to-date information on OT demographics and accurately portrays the occupational therapist as a professional whose practice is influenced by trends in health care delivery and financing.
