Occupational Therapies without Borders

Towards an Ecology of Occupation-based Practices

Dikaios Sakellariou, Frank Kronenberg
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 432

This is a companion text to "Occupational Therapy without Borders - Volume 1: learning from the spirit of survivors!" In this landmark text writers from around the world discuss a plurality of occupation-based approaches that explicitly acknowledge the full potential of the art and science of occupational therapy. The profession is presented as a political possibilities-based practice, concerned with what matters most to people in real life contexts, generating practice-based evidence to complement evidence-based practice. As these writers demonstrate, occupational therapies are far more than, as some critical views have suggested, a monoculture of practice rooted in Western modernity. Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu captures the ethos of this book, which essentially calls for engagements in the service of a purpose that is larger than the advancement of our profession's interests: 'Your particular approach to advancing our wellbeing and health strikes me as both unique and easily taken for granted. Whilst you value and work with medical understandings, your main aim seems to go beyond these. You seem to enable people to appreciate more consciously how what we do to and with ourselves and others on a daily basis impacts on our individual and collective wellbeing. As occupational therapists you have a significant contribution to make [.] allowing people from all walks of life to contribute meaningfully to the wellbeing of others.'

Occupational Therapy without Borders

Learning From The Spirit of Survivors

Frank Kronenberg, Nick Pollard
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 482

This landmark text challenges occupational therapists to more fully realize the profession's social vision of a more just society where disability, old age, and other marginalizing conditions and experiences are addressed by involving people in helping themselves to (re)gain the capacity and power to construct their own destinies through their participation in daily life. The book explores the new concept of occupational apartheid - the separation between those who have meaningful, useful occupations and those who are deprived of or isolated from occupation, or who are otherwise constrained in their daily life. All royalties from this book will go to a special fund that support the initiatives of "Spirit of Survivors - Occupational Therapy Without Borders". Companion volume also available - "Occupational Therapies without Borders, Volume 2": towards an ecology of occupation-based practice (9780702031038).
