Occupational Therapy Jobs on Social Work and Care Jobs

Occupational therapy (also abbreviated as OT) is a holistic health care profession that aims to promote health by enabling individuals to perform meaningful and purposeful activities across the lifespan. Occupational therapists are health professionals that use treatments to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of their patients with a physical, mental or developmental condition; they promote health and engagement in occupation, drawing from fields such as psychology, sociology and anthropology.

Occupational Therapists work with young children, adults and older people, identifying problems that they may incur in their everyday lives. This may involve making their everyday environment suitable for their needs, whether at home, workplace, school, hospital, prisons etc.

Occupational therapy is a client-centred practice in which the client has an integral part in the therapeutic process. The occupational therapy process includes an individualized evaluation during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the individual’s goals; a customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach his/her goals; and an outcomes evaluation to monitor progression towards meeting the client’s goals. Occupational therapy interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities.
