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.A practical guide to the core skills and processes of occupational therapyOutlines the theory but firmly relates it to practiceIntroduces a process-based client-centred model: Competent Occupational Performance in the Environment (CORE)Reflects the latest thinking in OT including occupational and environmental analysisHighly readable and free of jargon
