Get all the information you need to work holistically, creatively, and collaboratively when providing services for older adults with Karen Frank Barney, Margaret A. Perkinson, and Debbie Laliberte Rudman’s Occupational Therapy with Aging Adults, 2nd Edition. Emphasizing evidence-based, occupation-based practice and a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach, this text walks students and practitioners through the full range of gerontological occupational therapy practice, inclusive of working with individual clients to working at systems and societal levels. Over 80 leaders in their respective topical areas contributed to the book’s 33 chapters, including the conceptual foundations and principles of gerontological occupational therapy, bio-psychosocial age-related changes, environmental forces shaping occupational participation for older adults, the continuum of health care as well as implications for communities, and the attributes, ethical responsibilities, and roles involved in gerontological occupational therapy. This edition also covers topical OT issues that are crucially important to an aging population — such as diversity and inclusion, disability and aging, sexuality, technology, telehealth and virtual environments, intergenerational connections, updates on dementia research and caring for someone with dementia, occupational justice and aging, age inclusive communities, and an expanded section on hearing — to ensure your students are well versed in every aspect of this key practice area.
