Designed to provide readers with the most up-to-date information on the clinical applications of psychosocial occupational therapy, the thoroughly revised Third Edition of PSYCHOSOCIAL OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY: AN EVOLVING PRACTICE is an important addition to any occupational therapy library. With a novice friendly approach focusing on diagnosis, this book is filled with case illustrations to demonstrate therapy in clinical practice so that readers are prepared for working with actual clients in real-life contexts. Seven new chapters have been added to the third edition and cover topics such as recovery perspectives, mental health research in occupational therapy, mental health of infants, managing pain in occupational therapy, assessment and outcome measurement, psychosocial occupational therapy in the school setting, and occupational therapy in the military. With contributions from experts in the field and discussions of current developments in the profession, this book is an excellent resource for anyone interested in occupational therapy.


"This is a very well written, well organized text for the occupational therapy student. I have been teaching psycho-pathology, assessments and therapeutic approaches of wellness and psychiatric disability courses for 11 years. I have found that students generally approach this specialty area of occupational therapy with trepidation, fear and anxiety and stereotypical information. Stigma against the mentally ill is common. I am charged with teaching the truth, creating an atmosphere of comfort and understanding, and then building a students' empathic ability to see themselves as a therapeutic agent of change. Students should be able to complete their study in this domain with a solid understanding that occupational therapy treats holistically, and is focused on facilitating a clients' participation in meaningful occupation. Knowledge is power, and I believe this book will give student a thorough knowledge and the skills that will empower her to be an empathic professional who will be able to treat all clients, regardless of physical or mental illness, across the lifespan with dignity, respect and expertise."Patricia A.
