This ground-breaking text provides a comprehensive guide to occupational therapy in Australia, from its role in the healthcare system to the scope and nature of its practice. The authors begin with an overview of the history of occupational therapy in Australia, the ethical and legal aspects of its practice and its role in population health and health promotion. The values and philosophy of occupational therapy are considered next, together with the roles and responsibilities of practitioners and specific practice features, including client-centred practice, evidence-based practice, research in occupational therapy and clinical reasoning. Key issues, including occupational analysis, the development of occupations across the lifespan, occupational therapy assessment, Indigenous issues, practice in rural and remote areas and advocacy, leadership and entrepreneurship, are also examined in detail.

Professor Jenny Ziviani, Children's Allied Health Research, The University of Queensland 'This is a text that will have many editions and document the evolution of the profession for decades to come.'

This book draws attention to the ways in which an awareness of, and sensitivity to, embodiment can enlighten educational practices. It explores discourses from a range of thinkers, including Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Bakhtin, Haraway and Ahmed to name a few. The book argues that attention to embodiment can help us to reimagine the goals of education in ways that fit more coherently with human concerns and that offer the chance to provide education that is more holistic and grounded in our corporeality. Theories of embodiment can be used to modify education at the level of curriculum and at the level of pedagogy. This can help us design educational interventions that fit more naturally with how humans are inclined to learn and thus make educational experiences more meaningful. Attention to embodiment allows us to appreciate the extent to which the body appropriates a professional practice and the extent to which a professional practice appropriates the body of the learner. It shows how greater sensitivity to the body can enliven and enlighten our educational practices, especially in professional education.

Competence in any profession depends upon an understanding of the theory that underlies it. This concise and practical text for students and practitioners bridges the gap between occupational therapy theory and clinical practice, offering highly practical advice on using theory in practice in a wide range of settings. It considers the nature of professional practice and the need for a sound theoretical basis from which to plan, implement and justify interventions, and investigates the practical use of occupational therapy theory and the issues such use raises in health and social care settings from a European perspective. Every occupational therapy student worldwide needs to know about the underlying theory of their profession and its application to practice. The book particularly debates the nature of the theory of occupational therapy via the introduction of the concept of models of the profession as an umbrella for practice, all of which is brought to life via case studies incorporating expert advice, reflection exercises and assessment and evaluation forms.
