Illuminating The Dark Side of Occupation : International Perspectives from Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science, Hardback Book

Illuminating The Dark Side of Occupation : International Perspectives from Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science Hardback

Edited by Rebecca Twinley

Part of the Routledge Advances in Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy series

Description

This innovative volume introduces Twinley's concept of 'The Dark Side of Occupation'.

Focused on less explored and under-addressed occupations, it is an idea which challenges traditional assumptions around the positive, beneficial, health-promoting relationship between occupation and health.

Emphasising that people's individual experiences of occupations are not always addressed and may not always be legal, socially acceptable, or conducive to good health, the book investigates how these experiences can be explored theoretically, in practice and research, and in curriculum content for those learning about occupation.

Beginning with a discussion of some assumptions and misunderstandings that have been made about the concept, the substantive chapters present and analyse tangible examples of the concept's applicability.

This ground-breaking and practice-changing text provides ideas for future research and highlights contemporary, internationally relevant issues and concerns, such as the coronavirus pandemic. This book is an essential purchase for students in occupational therapy and science, and valuable supplementary reading for practitioners.

It is also relevant to a wide interdisciplinary audience with an interest in human occupation, encompassing anthropologists, councillors, criminologists, nurses, and human geographers.
