Description

Occupation Analysis in Practice is the essential book for
all future and current occupational therapists. It offers a
practical approach to the analysis of occupations in real world
practice.
The book frames occupation as the key component for analysis and
builds upon previous work limited to analysis at the activity
level. It examines the interests, goals, abilities and contexts of
individuals, groups, institutions and communities, along with the
demands of the occupation. It presents examples of occupation
analysis in different practice context including working with
children, health promotion, indigenous health, medico-legal
practice; mental health and occupational rehabilitation.

The book has four sections. Section 1 introduces
theoretical perspectives of the concept of occupation analysis and
how such analysis relates to particular models of Occupational
Therapy practice and the generic World Health Organisation
International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health.
Section 2 discusses analysis of particular components of
occupation that support practice. These include culture,
spirituality, home and community environments as well as self-care
and leisure. Section 3 applies analysis of occupations to
particular specialties encountered in practice. Section 4
considers the application of Occupation Analysis within
professional reasoning and goal setting.
