Overview

Politics of Occupation-Centred Practice addresses the cultural aspects of occupational identity and draws out the implications for practice, moving beyond the clinical environment to include the occupational therapist's work in the wider community.

It explores the development of individual occupational narratives, community traditions and their roots in everyday experiences, offering a range of examples from distinctive populations to demonstrate approaches to forming sustainable occupational engagements. Chapters span such key areas as 'Experiences of Disaster', 'Social Inclusion', 'Disability and Participation', and 'Sexuality, Disability Cultures and Occupation'.

This cutting edge text, coordinated by two distinguished researchers and educators in the global field of occupational therapy and science, is designed to meet the needs of students studying the conceptual foundations of occupational therapy, occupational science, role emerging practice, occupational justice, community development and community based rehabilitation. The book will also be of interest to academics and practitioners exploring new practice contexts created by the drive to address the diversity and inclusion agenda.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“What makes this book exciting is the fresh insights it offers to persistent issues within the occupational therapy.” (British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 1 February 2013)

“…it is a rare occurrence when one particular book sparks an immediate connection and I really want to read the next bit. That was the case with this particular volume. The editors have crafted an elegant flow between and across chapters that introduces the foundational concepts of the occupational therapy profession, then leads the reader into realms that are less familiar perhaps…A book full of new triggers of interest; a book that presents a fresh and unexpected dissection and synthesis of ‘‘occupation’’ as linked with languages, cultures, and narratives; a book well worth another read and one that can inform with fresh eyes when probing our practice and professional understanding.” (Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, 81, June 2014)
