The Practice of Psychosocial Occupational Therapy
Since the second edition of this text was published in 1997, significant developments have taken place within occupational therapy in the mental health context. In this new edition, Linda Finlay addresses and reflects on these changes, including those brought about by the National Service Framework for Mental Health.
Updated with a more evidence-based approach, this discussion of the theory and practice of occupational therapy emphasises the need for clear aims of treatment on the basis of a sound theoretical understanding. Case studies, practical illustrations and examples of research demonstrate the practical application of occupational therapy. At the end of each chapter, a Conclusion and Reflections section aims to provoke discussion, aided by the author's personal reflections.
