9780443074400: Occupational Therapy Without Borders - Volume 1: Learning From The Spirit of Survivors, 1e (Occupational Therapy Essentials)

This landmark text challenges occupational therapists to more fully realize the profession's social vision of a more just society where disability, old age, and other marginalizing conditions and experiences are addressed by involving people in helping themselves to (re)gain the capacity and power to construct their own destinies through their participation in daily life.

The book explores the new concept of occupational apartheid - the separation between those who have meaningful, useful occupations and those who are deprived of or isolated from occupation, or who are otherwise constrained in their daily life.

All royalties from this book will go to a special fund that support the initiatives of SPIRIT OF SURVIVORS - Occupational Therapy Without Borders.

Companion volume also available - Occupational Therapies without Borders Volume 2: towards an ecology of occupation-based practice (9780702031038)

  • links philosophy with practical examples of engaging people in the ordinary occupations of daily life as a means of enabling them to transform their own lives rather than remain dependant and marginalized
  • allows the voices of survivors to be heard
  • includes contributions from worldwide leaders in occupational therpy research and practice
  • describes concrete initiatives in under-served and neglected populations
  • questions generally accepted assumptions and key concepts of the profession
  • looks at social and political mechanisms that influence people's access to useful and meaningful occupation

Review:

This book is essential reading to understand the power of occupational therapy in addressing disabling environments. Practice is related directly to theory, whilst drilling down to the lived experience of participants. If,like me, you have not purchased and occupational therapy text for quite some time, make this the one.

Connections, A publication of OT Australia
This book is an indispensable tool for anyone who sides with the underdog. It is a treasure chest of agents of change and community-based facilitators in every field related to equitable and sustainable development.
