This intervention handbook is an excellent resource for occupational therapists in adult mental health whether working in community or inpatient services. Inspired by the occupation-focused health programmes Lifestyle Redesign and Lifestyle Matters for older adults, these are now reinterpreted for adults with mental health problems. Grounded in the model of human occupation (MOHO), the handbook recognises the value of occupational participation by exploring a range of activities through talking-based groups. These are supplemented by practical activity and individual sessions to achieve personal goals. Twelve activity types are offered: leisure, creative, technological, physical, outdoor, faith, self-care, domestic, caring, vocational, social and community. The sessions are organised so as much or as little of the programme required can be used and graded for the service user group and practice setting.
As with previous work from the author, the book is written in extremely clear language, with suggestions for implementation such as flyers to promote the sessions, goal sheets for service users and reflective practice sheets for the clinician. Possible assessment tools for pre- and post-intervention are given and a CD-ROM of material accompanies the book. This is an exciting piece of work that will appeal to students and newly qualified occupational therapists looking for guidance, experienced therapists who want to reclaim occupation-focused practice and researchers who can use this manual to test the clinical and cost effectiveness of occupational therapy interventions. I would highly recommend this as a suitable purchase for those seeking to demonstrate and improve both the value and quality of occupational therapy in mental health. --Genevieve Smyth, Professional Advisor Mental Health and Learning Disabilities College of Occupational Therapists
