  • Utilizes an entirely new organizational system based around intervention to increase its functionality in clinical settings
  • First book to be structured on the goals of Occupational Therapy;patient adaptation, learning, recovery and health/wellness promotion
  • Contains new and updated contributions from an international list of authors

Advanced therapies and technologies, new service delivery methods, and care upgrades in underserved areas are translating into improved quality of life for millions with disabilities. Occupational therapy parallels this progress at the individual level, balancing short-term recovery and adaptation with long-term independence and well-being.

This Second Edition of the International Handbook of Occupational Therapy Interventions builds on its groundbreaking predecessor by modeling current clinical standards rooted in evidence-based practice. Its interventions are applied to a diverse range of client illnesses, injuries, and conditions, with new or rewritten chapters on workplace and vehicle accommodations, smart home technologies, end-of-life planning, and other salient topics. New introductory chapters spotlight core competencies in the field, from assessing client needs and choosing appropriate interventions to evaluating programs and weighing priorities. And for increased educational value, interactive case studies allow readers an extra avenue for honing clinical reasoning and decision-making skills.

 

Intervention areas featured in the Handbook:

  • Environmental accommodation, assistive technologies, and accessible design.
  • Active learning to support mental, cognitive, movement- and sensory-based functioning and work-related rehabilitation programs
  • Enabling recovery and creating opportunity.
  • Promoting health and preventing further disability.

 

The Second Edition of the International Handbook of Occupational Therapy Interventions is career-affirming reading for all members of rehabilitation teams, including occupational and physical therapists and rehabilitation nurses. Students intending to enter this growing field and professionals working toward its continued improvement will find it useful and inspiring.
