In this edition, we describe four levels of theory that incorporate most of the profession's knowledge base, as well as the broad external health care models within which we practice, teach, and conduct research. They are as follows: Broad models of health and wellness (medical, public health, client-centered, recovery) Professional paradigm (occupation focused, holistic, client centered, and complex systems oriented) based upon the occupational therapy philosophy, ethics, professional position papers, and guidelines from the OTPF3 (AOTA, 2014) Preface to the Second Edition Occupation-based models (addressing the complex interactions among person, environment, and occupation that enable occupational performance and participation) Frames of reference (tools for occupational therapists to guide assessment and intervention with specific disability areas that represent barriers to clients' meeting their occupational goals) These levels are presented according to their broadness of focus. The broadest are the health and wellness models, which are shaped by national and global trends within political, economic, social, and cultural systems. We focus on how occupational therapy theory has evolved and the way these larger systems have interacted and influenced our profession. We then look at how our profession's leaders describe various dimensions of the new paradigm of occupation, incorporating the complex, dynamic, and nonlinear systems theories that have generated the epistemological shift to multidimensional professional reasoning and contextual knowing"--

This book is a collection of essays on occupational therapy theory and its application in practice. They represent the reflections, on aspects of occupational therapy, of experts in their own fields who are at the cutting edge of theory development. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, occupational therapists are beginning to conceptualise occupational therapy as a complex intervention. This book provides the level of detail to support such an understanding. Two chapters discuss the profession of occupational therapy: how it has developed and what is involved in being an occupational therapist. Other chapters explore the idea of occupation from different perspectives, providing detailed analyses of the concept that is central to the profession of occupational therapy. The third type of chapter describes how theory is used in occupational therapy practice, for example, in making decisions or implementing research findings.

Social participation naturally occurs in everyday life in combination with daily occupations, such as when people interact while eating, playing, carpooling, and working. Throughout Social Participation in Occupational Contexts: In Schools, Clinics and Communities, Professors Marilyn B. Cole and Mary V. Donohue explain how social interactions and environments can facilitate occupational performance or can create barriers to participation from an occupational perspective. The beginning chapters of this comprehensive text define the broad range of social skills, competencies, contexts, and cultural norms for social participation in everyday life, offering multiple opportunities for learning and practicing specific skills. Section One also provides an overview of theoretical foundations of social learning, social capital, and the application of social participation in educational learning environments. Section Two reviews social development from childhood to maturity providing a backdrop for a clearer understanding of the interplay of occupation and socialization in interpersonal relationships and natural community groups. Also covered are opportunities for development of social participation in professional education that illustrate theory application in classroom, fieldwork, and community settings for all age groups. Parameters for evaluating social participation situations, contexts, skills, and norms are discussed in Section Three, along with a variety of tools relevant to the assessment of social participation from client and contextual perspectives, including critiques of these evaluation instruments. Lastly, in Section Four, occupational intervention approaches designed to foster social skills and remove barriers will enable practitioners and students to facilitate social participation and development across the lifespan. Features: · Occupational focus emphasized through an extension of International Classification of Functioning and the American Occupational Therapy Association Practice Framework · Role-playing scenarios in each chapter provide participatory learning techniques · Includes thought-provoking questions and learning activities · Applies theories from several fields to occupational contexts · Provides evaluations and interventions to address social participation issues · International sources in the theory and research provide a global perspective of the concept of social participation · Faculty members will enjoy an instructor's manual and a PowerPoint presentation in a 14-week semester format Whether you're an occupational therapy practitioner, student, health professional, teacher, or community group leader, the knowledge and benefits you'll acquire from Social Participation in Occupational Contexts: In Schools, Clinics and Communities are endless.
