About this title:
Synopsis:
This fascinating and passionate volume celebrates the history of the profession of occupational therapy, particularly in mental health. Experts highlight the key aspects of thinking about occupational therapy's evolution and its initial sense of purpose in a way that acknowledges all OT professionals’roots in a rich intellectual tradition that has direct links with today's emerging practices.

The underlying theme of this book is how the profession can make its best possible contribution to society. All OT professionals will find much food for thought here, for the book recalls the intellectual tradition at the inception of occupational therapy as a formal discipline.
