This practical text supports occupational therapy students and educators as they navigate the opportunities and challenges of placement learning. Introducing contemporary and innovative occupation-centred practice, it sets out a step-by-step guide to using this knowledge across a range of settings. The clear structure, templates, examples and strategies it presents demonstrate how contemporary theory can be used to inform and guide practice. * The first part of the book contextualises current occupational therapy, introducing a framework for practice, the occupational therapist's key tools and some straight-forward learning theory. * The second part outlines the occupational therapy process in detail, with chapters taking the reader from preparing for a placement through assessment and goal-setting to carrying out interventions and evaluating them. * The final part is comprised of a selection of case studies, which demonstrate how the occupational therapy process can be adapted for different contexts, including in role-emerging placements. This book is an essential resource for occupational therapy students during their placement preparation and throughout their placement.
It also serves as a tool for practice educators who are looking for assistance in structuring learning for their students.
