Written by OT expert Jane Clifford O'Brien, this edition also keeps you current with emerging topics such as working with culturally diverse patients, evidence-based practice, and new practice areas such as driving and obesity.
"This book has numerous strengths: insightful testimonies written by either an occupational therapist or an occupational therapy assistant about their experiences of occupational therapy, clear learning objectives that outline the main points covered in each chapter, excellent range of case studies and photographs, succinct summaries, appropriate learning activities and review questions at the end of each chapter. Each chapter contains a wealth of materials which is well written and supported with references." The Indian Journal of Occupational Therapy : Vol. XLI : No. 1 (January 2009 - April 2009)
