In Activity Analysis and Application, Fourth Edition, the authors guide students through a thought process to the point of discerning meaningful and purposeful activities for use in occupational therapy intervention. There are additions and expansions included in this exciting, new edition to incorporate information from literature review, to clarify material used in previous editions, and to present relevant ideas that have emerged since the last revision. In this comprehensive fourth edition, a significant increase in theoretical material has been added, including three new chapters discussing occupation, learning strategies, and activity gradation and adaptation. This essential text for occupational therapy programs has been divided into four modules that describe the historical foundations of occupation as the basis for practice, and the dimensions, therapeutic utilization, and versatility of activity as treatment. NEW ON-LINE FORMS: Activity Analysis and Application, Fourth Edition includes updated forms to teach the thinking skills needed to incorporate activity into meaningful intervention. In addition, five of these useful forms are now available on our website for the students' convenience. This allows the students to download and print out the forms, which makes them easily available for class assignments and for use later in the workplace.Gayle I.
