Providing true occupation-based intervention can often be overwhelming and time consuming for practitioners in today's fast paced health care industry. The solution is Occupational Therapy Intervention Resource Manual, which provides practical strategies for generating and implementing occupation-based treatment plans in everyday practice. Occupational Therapy Intervention Resource Manual is designed to help practioners develop and engage clients in treatment programs that are individualized, meaningful, and oriented toward the clients' occupations and occupational performance. The authors have identified strategies and have developed tools that enable practitioners to critically evaluate and refine their own practice, as well as assist those whom they supervise, mentor, and teach.
Occupational therapy is a type of therapy involving the use of assessment and intervention to recover, develop or maintain the occupations or meaningful activities of people. Occupational therapists usually deal with people having mental health problems, impairments or disabilities. They help individuals to achieve a fulfilled and satisfied state of life with the help of specially designed interventions. Injury rehabilitation, providing support to the elderly dealing with physical and cognitive changes, and assisting children with disabilities to enable them to participate properly in school and social situations, are some of the common examples of occupational therapy interventions. This book includes some of the vital pieces of work being conducted across the world, on various topics related to occupational therapy interventions. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. In this book, using case studies and examples, constant effort has been made to make the understanding of the difficult concepts of occupational therapy as easy and informative as possible, for the readers.
Advanced therapies and technologies, new service delivery methods, and care upgrades in underserved areas are translating into improved quality of life for millions with disabilities. Occupational therapy parallels this progress at the individual level, balancing short-term recovery and adaptation with long-term independence and well-being. This Second Edition of the International Handbook of Occupational Therapy Interventions builds on its ground-breaking predecessor by modelling current clinical standards rooted in scientific evidence-based practice. Its interventions are applied to a diverse range of client disabilities, with many new or rewritten chapters on workplace and vehicle accommodations, smart home technologies, end-of-life planning, and other salient topics. New introductory chapters spotlight core competencies in the field, from assessing client needs and choosing appropriate interventions to evaluating programs and weighing priorities. And for increased educational value, interactive case studies allow readers an extra avenue for honing clinical reasoning and decision-making skills. Of particular note is a new chapter providing a taxonomy—the Occupational Therapy Intervention Framework—and a validation study of its categories and concepts, delineating the occupational therapist’s roles and the expected outcomes. Intervention areas featured in the Handbook include: ● Adaptive interventions, OTs manage and facilitate clients’ adaptations. ● Learning interventions, OTs teach and the clients learn or relearn. ● Enabling interventions, OTs enable clients to be meaningfully occupied. ● Preventing interventions, OTs prevent ill-health and promote clients’ ability to sustain health in daily life. The Second Edition of the International Handbook of Occupational Therapy Interventions is career-affirming reading for all members of rehabilitation teams, including occupational and physical therapists and rehabilitation nurses. Students intending to enter this growing field and professionals working toward its continued improvement will find it useful and inspiring.
