Powerful Practice: A Model for Authentic Occupational Therapy is a shot of occupational therapy adrenaline. . . , [a] gift to our profession.

Powerful Practice offers clinicians, educators, and students a practical and accessible guide for providing occupational therapy services across practice settings. Based on decades of experience in practice, education, and research, the authors provide a critical and provocative perspective on modern-day occupational therapy. They challenge readers to embrace their unique expertise as occupational therapists and present a call to action for implementing evaluations and interventions that are more precise, evidence-based, and legitimate for use in occupational therapy

Features that set this book apart:

► A new conceptual model, informed by occupational science, that provides a novel approach to understanding the complexity of occupation

► The latest developments of the Occupational Therapy Intervention Process Model (OTIPM), a reasoning model that ensures occupational therapists maintain their focus on occupation

► Targeted strategies for critically analyzing evaluation and intervention methods used in occupational therapy

► Evaluation methods that extend beyond independence and prioritize evaluating quality of occupational performance in a more nuanced, evidence-based manner

► Detailed instructions and resources for implementing observation-based performance analyses with clients of all ages and diagnoses

Clear procedures for documenting observable and measurable client-centered evaluation results, goals, progress, and outcomes

Efficient methods for accumulating practice-based evidence to demonstrate the power of occupation

Solutions for overcoming constraints of clinical practice in order to provide high quality, authentic occupational therapy services
