OCCUPATION: FOUNDATIONS IN OCCUPATIONAL SCIENCE & THERAPY
Credit points: 15
You will develop advanced knowledge of theoretical and research literatures that inform current understandings of the multidimensional nature of occupation in occupational science and therapy. You will gain an overview of current conceptual understandings of occupation through critically analysing and evaluating theoretical literature and research in occupational science that explores the multidimensional nature of occupation, occupational engagement and its relationships with health and wellbeing. You will review literature related to understanding occupational engagement in childhood, adulthood, or older adulthood; and to reflect on its applicability in occupational therapy. You will also have opportunities to work together to evaluate a range of methodologies used to investigate research questions concerning occupational engagement, health and wellbeing.
