This key text has been written to bridge the gap between the books on the theory of occupational therapy and those which look at the occupational therapy management of specific conditions, i.e., it links the theory to practice. It looks at the 4 core processes which form the basis of the unique practice of OT: assessment and evaluation of individual potential and performance, occupational analysis and adaptation, environmental analysis adaptation and therapeutic use of self. It introduces the student to the scope and purpose of each of these processes and gives practical information about theirapplication in relation to working with adults.
