Fresh Perspectives on Occupation : Creating Health in Everyday Patterns of Doing

Erlandsson, Lena-Karin

Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)


I would like to thank the New Zealand Association of Occupational Therapists and the Scientific Programme Committee for inviting me to present at this conference. It is an honour. The theme of this conference is Fresh Perspectives and I will present three perspectives on maybe the most central phenomenon for occupational therapists; namely daily occupations. My point of departure is my part of the world, a Scandinavian and Swedish approach to occupational therapy practice, occupational therapy research, and education. I present a view of the complexity of human occupation, from a time and doing perspective. The focus is how understandings of the organisation and structure of occupations can be used to enhance health. I will address an occupation focused intervention for women with stress-related illness, and where the knowledge can be used to enable participants to make self-directed changes in their daily occupations.

Nyckelord: Occupational therapy; Conduct of life; Women--Health and hygiene
