Thoroughly revised and updated, the 4th Edition of this groundbreaking text traces the historical development of the foundations of modern occupational therapy theory; examines its status today; and, looks to its future.

Well organized chapters are supported by extensive references. This title offers the most comprehensive coverage of theories in the field. It presents a framework for understanding what kind of knowledge is needed to support practice and critically examines existing knowledge. It provides a structure for thinking about and analyzing knowledge in order to compare different approaches. It includes summary tables for each model. It highlights profession-wide concepts such as dynamic systems, narrative, and occupational form.
