Understanding Occupation-People-Context - OCCP1096

Year - 2018

Understanding people's occupations in context and the importance of occupation to their health and well-being is fundamental to all areas of occupational therapy practice. In this unit, students will develop the skills and knowledge needed to collect and organise information about individuals' engagement in occupations within their various contexts from their perspectives. They will use a client-centred perspective to explore participation in day-to-day activities, investigate various theoretical perspectives of human occupations, develop the therapeutic communication skills to discover where, when, how and why people engage in occupations, and examine the contextual and personal factors that affect occupational choices and participation in occupations.
