Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book can be considered a valuable resource to an area that has so little focused information published, as this topic usually appears as a paragraph in generic occupational therapy books … Importantly, this book highlights the function of role emerging placements in shaping the future of occupational therapy practice.   (British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 1 June 2012)
