Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Yvonne M. Randall, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA (Touro University Nevada)
Description: This is the twelfth edition of an essential book for occupational therapy students and practitioners alike. The editors continue to focus on occupation as the basis for occupational therapy practice regardless of the environmental context, as well as the collaborative relationship between therapist and client. Contributors include occupational therapy students, occupational therapy assistants, and occupational therapists working in a broad spectrum of environments, including practitioners and educators.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a broad range of occupational therapy knowledge and practice. The journey through the book begins with core historical information about the profession and the occupational nature of humans, then travels through the provision of occupational therapy services and innovative technologies and practices that currently impact evaluation and treatment. This approach allows readers to move in a progressive pattern through the chapters or address specific topic areas (e.g., professional development, occupational performance theories of practice, analyzing occupation) to gain additional knowledge.
Audience: The intended audiences are students entering the profession of occupational therapy and seasoned occupational therapy professionals seeking a centralized resource for current occupational therapy knowledge and practice.
Features: The editors highlight specific changes in this edition, which include an expansion of the available web-based materials, additional clarity related to the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, 2nd edition (American Occupational Therapy Association, 2008), theories that inform current practice that are outside the field of occupational therapy, and a greater emphasis on the relationship of practitioner and client working together in different settings. Online video clips support the written material and thorough appendixes provide additional ready-access information.
Assessment: This edition presents the most current focus of occupational therapy in one book. As the profession continues to evolve, it is important to update this iconic book in occupational therapy. The editors provide an excellent source for students and practitioners.
