Content

This unit provides a broad understanding of occupational therapy in practice situations. It covers the selection and application of OT theoretical models, the use of occupation-based processes to problem solve, articulation of occupational goals related to occupational therapy practice, reflecting on personal approaches to theoretical directions and clinical reasoning, and time management, needs analysis, budgeting, and marketing. Topics addressed in this unit include the development of innovations in a range of occupational therapy practice situations, and draws on experiences already gained through prior academic and fieldwork learning. Students will form a team, work together, develop leadership skills and design an innovative intervention program for a clientele of their choice.  Teaching will be face to face and highly interactive with sessions arranged as a series of seminars that will involve classes, discussions, presentations and learning tasks in small groups.
