Case scenarios drawn from health and human service practice are used to provide learning material about motor, cognitive, psychological, intellectual and social dysfunction. Topics to be addressed in this unit include: musculoskeletal, neurological, psychological, cognitive, affective, and social disorders and their effect on people's occupations; an introduction to clinical reasoning; theoretical concepts and models of occupational therapy; the biomechanics of movement; person - environment - occupation model; client-centred processes - individual and group therapies.
