Content

This level 1 unit comprises both academic and fieldwork streams. As such it aims to continue the development of students' knowledge in occupational science and therapy. In this unit students will work individually and in small groups to explore population and ecological health issues using occupational perspectives.

Students will employ an active research approach to better understand issues affecting the health of community groups and to consider ways in which occupational therapy seeks to promote health for all. Topics include philosophical, theoretical, and scientific concepts of occupation, health promotion, social and ecological concepts of health; action research methodology; community education; group work; occupational science concepts, needs, deprivation, alienation, adaptation, balance, environments, justice, burnout and boredom; the relationship between occupation and health; and practice contexts involving organisations and communities. Classes, seminars, issue-based learning, presentations and assignments guide project development and learning which concludes in class presentations.

Students will also participate in and observe practice in health and community organisations, developing occupational science and therapy skills and competencies. Students will be encouraged to draw on personal and fieldwork experiences to understand themselves as occupational beings and to begin the development of reflective professional practice.
