Occupation-Based Activity Analysis

Occupation-Based Activity Analysis


Occupational therapists use occupations and activities as not just a goal, but also as a treatment medium, therefore, they must understand both the uniqueness of a client's occupations and how an activity can be used therapeutically. To analyze the complexity of an occupation takes much more depth of understanding of the person engaging in it, his or her environment, and the uniqueness of the occupation a person has chosen.

The new Second Edition of Occupation-Based Activity Analysis continues the tradition of teaching students and clinicians the process of conducting activity analyses and occupation-based activity analyses.

Dr. Heather Thomas has updated Occupation-Based Activity Analysis, Second Edition to reflect the significant changes made to the activity analysis process and terminology in the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Third Edition. As in an activity analysis, occupation-based activity analysis looks at what is required for full participation, yet goes beyond analyzing the activity; it looks at what it means for the person engaging in it and how and where it is performed by that person.

Inside Occupation-Based Activity Analysis, Second Edition, each chapter is dedicated to a component of the activity analysis process and corresponding section of the Framework. Chapters have been restructured based on a greater emphasis on occupation-based activity analysis. From start to finish, readers are guided through identifying the occupation, sequence and timing, objects and properties, space and social demands, body functions, and structures and performance skills required.

New in the Second Edition:

Chapters throughout the text have been updated to reflect the changes in the Framework
A new chapter to reflect the new addition to the Activity Demands section of the Framework
Changes in terminology and definitions in the areas of occupation, performance skills, and body functions
Additional activities provided at the end of each chapter
Appendices and forms have been updated to reflect the changes in the Framework
Images have been updated with greater clarity and resolution
Updated and new instructor materials for faculty to use in the classroom

As a foundational skill, activity analysis and occupation-based activity analysis is utilized throughout students' careers and into their lives as practitioners, making Occupation-Based Activity Analysis, Second Edition the perfect textbook for the occupational therapy or occupational therapy assistant student, faculty, or clinician.
