The book is a comprehensive textbook for occupational therapy students and occupational therapists working in the field of mental health. It presents different theories and approaches used, outlines the occupational therapy process, discusses the context of practice, and describes a wide range of techniques used by occupational therapists. These include physical activity, cognitive approaches, group work, creative activities, play and life skills. The fourth edition has been extensively revised and updated. The new structure reflects changes in service delivery and includes sections on philosophy and theory base, the occupational therapy process, ensuring quality, the context of occupational therapy, occupations, and client groups. Important new areas that are now covered include mental health promotion, evidence-based practice, community development, and continuing professional development.

• Links between theory and practice are reinforced throughout
• Written by a team of experienced OT teachers and practitioners

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to occupational therapy students, new practitioners and more experienced practitioners who want to refresh and update their knowledge"
International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, August 2008, Vol 15, No 8

"..The book is a noteworthy achievement in the manner in which it brings together so many disparate experienced voices in mental health practice. The outcome is a very valuable reference book not only for the student practitioner, at whom it is primarily aimed, but also for practising therapists wanting to keep abreast of recent developments."
British Journal of Occupational Therapy February 2009 72(2)
