Quinta edición, por primera vez en castellano, de una obra que -desde hace más de 20 años, fecha en que se publicó su primera edición- ha llegado a ser un texto esencial para todos los estudiantes de terapia ocupacional y profesionales en ejercicio de la misma, como herramienta de actualización, ya que su principal objetivo es servir como vínculo entre la teoría de la terapia ocupacional y la práctica profesional diaria. En esta edición se ha situado la ocupación como tema central, de modo que los principios de valoración e intervención se basan en las necesidades ocupacionales del individuo. No se ofrece tanta información médica como en ediciones anteriores, que se puede encontrar fácilmente en otros textos, sino que el enfoque de la obra son las habilidades clínicas que permiten relacionar la teoría ocupacional con el contexto práctico. Diseñada para cubrir completamente las necesidades de los estudiantes, esta obra se divide en cuatro secciones, que van desde los principios y filosofía de la profesión a las estrategias de intervención en las diferentes especialidades.

Occupational Therapies Without Borders

Author: Frank Kronenberg
Publisher: Churchill Livingstone
ISBN: 0702031038
Release Date: 2010-11-11
Genre: Medical

The companion text to Occupational Therapy without Borders - Volume 1: learning from the spirit of survivors! In this landmark text writers from around the world discuss a plurality of occupation-based approaches that explicitly acknowledge the full potential of the art and science of occupational therapy. The profession is presented as a political possibilities-based practice, concerned with what matters most to people in real life contexts, generating practice-based evidence to complement evidence-based practice. As these writers demonstrate, occupational therapies are far more than, as some critical views have suggested, a monoculture of practice rooted in Western modernity. Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu captures the ethos of this book, which essentially calls for engagements in the service of a purpose that is larger than the advancement of our profession's interests: "Your particular approach to advancing our wellbeing and health strikes me as both unique and easily taken for granted. Whilst you value and work with medical understandings, your main aim seems to go beyond these. You seem to enable people to appreciate more consciously how what we do to and with ourselves and others on a daily basis impacts on our individual and collective wellbeing. As occupational therapists you have a significant contribution to make [.] allowing people from all walks of life to contribute meaningfully to the wellbeing of others." Links philosophy with practical examples of engaging people in ordinary occupations of daily life as a means of enabling them to transform their own lives Includes contributions from worldwide leaders in occupational therapy research and practice Describes concrete initiatives in under-served and neglected populations Looks at social and political mechanisms that influence people's access to useful and meaningful occupation Chapters increase diversity of contributions - geographically, culturally and politically Emphasis on practice, education and research maintains academic credibility A glossary and practical examples in nearly every chapter make text more accessible to students

Genre: Medical

Occupational Science: The Evolving Discipline presents the most current and comprehensive information on the development of occupational science. This exciting resource offers stimulating ideas about occupation and its implications for health and occupational therapy practice. The papers in this book, most of which are from presentations at the Occupational Science Symposia, reflect an extensive range of perspectives. Presentations by Stephen Hawking, Jane Goodall, and Mary Catherine Bateson are included, as well as other invited and peer-reviewed presentations. In these papers, experienced scholars share their ideas, hypotheses, and preliminary research, tying together the theory behind the study of occupational science. Each section of the book begins with a detailed introduction in which Zemke and Clark describe the relationship of each paper to the study of occupational science. This unique text provides an understanding of occupation that will give therapists a heightened concern for those activities in which their patients invest their energies and time, a better understanding of how participation in occupation shapes self-identity, a way to identify the motivating factors for participation in occupation, and knowledge of how patients can enhance their life opportunities.
