This one day course is all about occupation. Occupation is the unique professional perspective of occupational therapists but can get lost in practice which is shaped by competing demands. Students will explore how to use occupational science and models of occupation to underpin professional reasoning and inform the occupational therapy process. Making occupation the centre of a service and how to use interventions that are occupation based and focused will be considered so that students develop an action plan for developing their practice.
