Summary Occupational Science: The Evolving Discipline presents the most current and comprehensive information on the development of occupational science. This exciting resource offers stimulating ideas about occupation and its implications for health and occupational therapy practice. The papers in this book, most of which are from presentations at the Occupational Science Symposia, reflect an extensive range of perspectives. Presentations by Stephen Hawking, Jane Goodall, and Mary Catherine Bateson are included, as well as other invited and peer-reviewed presentations. In these papers, experienced scholars share their ideas, hypotheses, and preliminary research, tying together the theory behind the study of occupational science. Each section of the book begins with a detailed introduction in which Zemke and Clark describe the relationship of each paper to the study of occupational science
This unique text provides an understanding of occupation that will give therapists a heightened concern for those activities in which their patients invest their energies and time, a better understanding of how participation in occupation shapes self-identity, a way to identify the motivating factors for participation in occupation, and knowledge of how patients can enhance their life opportunities
