Newly updated to reflect the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, Fourth Edition (OTPF-4), Occupational and Activity Analysis, Third Edition outlines the process of conducting occupational and activity analyses for occupational therapy students and clinicians. Occupational therapy practitioners use occupations and activities not only as a goal but also as a treatment medium, so understanding both the uniqueness of a client’s occupations and how an activity can be used therapeutically is essential. This text is an introduction to both realms, first by explaining the process by which to peel back the layers of an occupation or activity to reveal its intricacy and then examining how to use this information for evaluation and intervention. Dr. Heather Thomas has updated Occupational and Activity Analysis, Third Edition to reflect the significant changes made to the activity analysis process and terminology in the OTPF-4. Conducting either an occupational or activity analysis investigates not only what is required for full participation but also looks at the meaning ascribed to it by the people, groups, or communities engaging in it and how personal and environmental contexts impact participation. What’s new and included in the Third Edition: *Chapters throughout the text have been updated to reflect the changes in the OTPF-4. *Updated educational standards set by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) for doctoral and master’s level and occupational therapy assistant programs. *Additional cases and relevant clinical examples. *Updated tables, boxes, and figures throughout. *Expanded section on communication management. *Appendices containing updated occupational and activity analysis forms. *Example of a full activity analysis. *Updated and added photos to help students understand concepts.

As a foundational skill, occupational and activity analysis is utilized throughout students’ careers and into their lives as practitioners, making Occupational and Activity Analysis, Third Edition the perfect textbook for the occupational therapy or occupational therapy assistant student, faculty, or clinician.
