Book Description

9 April 2008 0443100276 978-0443100277 4
The book is a comprehensive textbook for occupational therapy students and occupational therapists working in the field of mental health. It presents different theories and approaches used, outlines the occupational therapy process, discusses the context of practice, and describes a wide range of techniques used by occupational therapists. These include physical activity, cognitive approaches, group work, creative activities, play and life skills. The book covers all areas of practice in the field, including mental health promotion, acute psychiatry, community work, severe and enduring mental illness, working with older people, child and adolescent mental health, forensic occupational therapy, substance misuse and working with people on the margins of society.

The theory chapters are written by occupational therapists who are recognised experts in their fields and the applied chapters are written by practitioners. an innovation in this edition is the inclusion of commentaries by service users on some of the chapters.

The fourth edition has been extensively revised and updated. The new structure reflects changes in service delivery and includes sections on philosophy and theory base, the occupational therapy process, ensuring quality, the context of occupational therapy, occupations, and client groups.

Important new areas that are now covered include mental health promotion, evidence-based practice, community development, and continuing professional development.

Product Description


"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to occupational therapy students, new practitioners and more experienced practitioners who want to refresh and update their
International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, August 2008, Vol 15, No 8

"..The book is a noteworthy achievement in the manner in which it brings together so many disparate experienced voices in mental health practice. The outcome is a very valuable reference book not only for the student practitioner, at whom it is primarily aimed, but also for practising therapists wanting to keep abreast of recent developments."
British Journal of Occupational Therapy February 2009 72(2)

4.0 out of 5 stars As Advertised. 23 Aug 2010
By CTB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Shipped and received as advertised. Book was shipped via USPS; probably not the best shipping method as the book was knocked around pretty good before it was received; only packaged in a bag, not a box. And clearly it depends on your postal carrier, but the book was stuffed into my tiny apartment mailbox instead of the carrier knocking on our door to hand it to me directly. Aside from that, the book was received in new condition as the posting stated.
