Newly updated to reflect the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework:  Domain and Process, Fourth Edition (OTPF-4), Occupational and Activity  Analysis, Third Edition outlines the process of conducting occupational  and activity analyses for occupational therapy students and clinicians.

Occupational  therapy practitioners use occupations and activities not only as a goal  but also as a treatment medium, so understanding both the uniqueness of  a client’s occupations and how an activity can be used therapeutically  is essential. This text is an introduction to both realms, first by  explaining the process by which to peel back the layers of an occupation  or activity to reveal its intricacy and then examining how to use this  information for evaluation and intervention.

Dr. Heather Thomas  has updated Occupational and Activity Analysis, Third Edition to reflect  the significant changes made to the activity analysis process and  terminology in the OTPF-4. Conducting either an occupational or activity  analysis investigates not only what is required for full participation  but also looks at the meaning ascribed to it by the people, groups, or  communities engaging in it and how personal and environmental contexts  impact participation.

What’s new and included in the Third  Edition: Chapters throughout the text have been updated to reflect the  changes in the OTPF-4. Updated educational standards set by the  Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) for  doctoral and master’s level and occupational therapy assistant  programs. Additional cases and relevant clinical examples. Updated tables,  boxes, and figures throughout. Expanded section on communication  management.Appendices containing updated occupational and activity  analysis forms. Example of a full activity analysis.

As  a foundational skill, occupational and activity analysis is utilized  throughout students’ careers and into their lives as practitioners,  making Occupational and Activity Analysis, Third Edition the perfect  textbook for the occupational therapy or occupational therapy assistant  student, faculty, or clinician.
