OT 534 Tools of Practice (6)
This course offers a study of the tools of OT, including the nonhuman environment, conscious use of self, the teaching-learning process, purposeful activity, activity analysis, synthesis, and gradation. Laboratory sessions will consist of task group meetings that will enable students to develop skills in a variety of therapeutic media and activities of daily living. Emphasis will be placed on the development of clinical reasoning skills, enabling students to integrate theory with selection of occupations and activity. Performance, adaptation, and gradation for a diversity of clinical group situations, personal meanings, and environmental contexts of purposeful activities and occupations will also be explored. Diverse-background students only.
