Enriching Occupational Therapy Practice with Occupational Science

May 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm



The overall aim of this one-day workshop is to inspire occupational therapists in clinical practice with major contributions from occupational science. It will situate occupational science within occupational therapy history and its influence and examine more closely fundamental occupational therapy concepts with a scientific eye. Participants will learn about latest evidence, evaluation tools and interventions about the following concepts: engagement in occupations; life balance; boredom; occupational meaning. This workshop is an opportunity for occupational therapists to reflect on and share about their practice and have hands-on experience with several assessment tools.

After taking part in this workshop, participants will:
1. Understand the contributions from occupational science.
2. Be aware of evidence-informed knowledge on fundamental occupational therapy concepts, such as engagement, life balance, boredom and meaning.
3. Be able to apply several evaluation tools on engagement, life balance, boredom and meaning.
