This landmark text challenges occupational therapists to more fully realize the profession's social vision of a more just society where disability, old age, and other marginalizing conditions and experiences are addressed by involving people in helping themselves to (re)gain the capacity and power to construct their own destinies through their participation in daily life. The book explores the new concept of occupational apartheid - the separation between those who have meaningful, useful occupations and those who are deprived of or isolated from occupation, or who are otherwise constrained in their daily life. All royalties from this book will go to a special fund that support the initiatives of "Spirit of Survivors - Occupational Therapy Without Borders". Companion volume also available - "Occupational Therapies without Borders, Volume 2": towards an ecology of occupation-based practice (9780702031038).
