Occupational Therapy Interventions: Functions and Occupations, Second Edition is a unique and comprehensive text intended to provide the essential information required for occupational therapy practice in the physical approach to the intervention process.  This practical and user-friendly text offers an entry-level approach to bridging the American Occupational Therapy Association’s Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Third Edition with everyday practice, specifically concerning interventions.

 

Dr. Catherine Meriano and Dr. Donna Latella focus each chapter of the text on an area of occupation, evidence-based practice, current intervention options, as well as a specific hands-on approach to grading interventions.  Although the focus of the text is the intervention process, Occupational Therapy Interventions: Function and Occupations, Second Edition also includes a detailed “Evaluation Grid” which offers a unique approach to choosing occupational therapy evaluations.

 

New in the Second Edition:

  • New evidence-based articles have been added to each of the chapters

  • Some new rewritten and expanded chapters

  • Updated references throughout

  • Includes sample exam questions with each chapter

  • Updated key concepts and incorporated new documents such as:

    • AOTA’s Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Third Edition
