Analysis and Adaptation of Occupation

SAR OT 513

This course will introduce students to the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain & Process (OTPF) 3nd edition (AOTA, 2014), an official document for the profession. Through lecture and participatory activities, students will investigate aspects of the domain of occupational therapy and "achieving health, well-being, and participation in life through engagement in occupation" (AOTA, pg. S4). Employing logical thinking, critical analysis, problem solving, and creativity students will learn how to analyze and adapt occupations and activities. Students will be able to explain the meaning and dynamics of occupation and activity, including the interaction of areas of occupation, performance skills, performance patterns, activity demands, context(s), and client factors. Through community service projects, students will articulate to clients and the general public the distinct value of occupation to support participation. Using small team presentations, students will gain an understanding of the importance of the historical and philosophical base of occupational therapy.
