Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316455490, Hardcover)

The second edition of this unique text examines work as the heart of the philosophy and practice of occupational therapy. Comprehensive in scope, the text observes the topic historically, conceptually, and programmatically, throughout the life span, and across various disabilities and facilities. Beginning with an historical perspective, Occupational Therapy outlines the foundations leading to present-day programs. A conceptual framework is provided, with emphasis on developing work assessments and programs, and stressing uniform terminology. A thorough overview of the state-of-the-art of work assessment and evaluation; along with an in-depth presentation of the Jacobs Pre-vocational Skills Assessment lays the groundwork for an understanding of the most current thinking. Coverage also includes: an overview of work programming for children; in-depth perspective of work programming for psychiatric clients; chronic pain, disability, and rehabilitation of the injured worker; examples of innovative work practice for adults with neurophysiologic problems; prevention; home-based employment as a viable environment for the disabled worker; occupational therapy education and work practice; and the future outlook for occupational therapists in work practice. This working guide for occupational therapists serves as a resource and reference for the planning, refining and teaching of any type of work program.
