Written specifically for occupational therapy students, newly qualified occupational therapists and educators and is a useful reference guide for academic tutors. The Occupational Therapy Handbook reflects modern day occupational therapy practice and education. The editors have created a current user-friendly text book specifically in relation to Practice Education, particularly in light of the developing role of occupational therapy in current practice. Many developments in practice education have re-focussed the value that the profession places on occupation, particularly in role emerging placements and expanding areas of practice. These developments are captured in this text. Other texts that have been produced have predominantly had a multi-professional focus and not addressed all the key occupational therapy issues in the depth required.There is always something to learn, irrespective of your level of expertise.
