Including over 600 A to Z entries, this original dictionary provides clear and succinct definitions of the terms used in the related and developing fields of occupational science and occupational therapy. Entries cover a broad range of topics from activities of daily living and autonomy to task-oriented approach and work-life balance and have a clear occupational focus. They provide an overview of the complex nature of human occupation and the impact of illness on occupation and well-being. Descriptions and analysis are backed up by key theories from related areas such as anthropology, sociology, and medicine. This is an authoritative resource for students of occupational science and occupational therapy, as well as an accessible point of reference for practitioners from both subject areas.
