9780130133038: Introduction to Occupation: The Art and Science of Living

For courses in Occupational Science, Sociology of Work, Social Anthropology, and Occupational Psychology.

Broad in perspective, this text challenges students to look beyond occupation as just “work” to include all the ways in which we occupy ourselves—showing how what we do forms our lifestyle, and how occupations are enfolded to create a balanced or unbalanced style of life. Practical as well as conceptual, it explores both informal and formal ways for studying occupation, provides a model and framework for studying occupational development across the lifespan, and considers issues and insights surrounding such topics as occupation and identity, occupation and place, occupation and groups and communities, occupation deprivation and disruption, and occupation and justice.

From the Back Cover:

Human occupation is nothing less than the way we describe the experiences that account for our pathway through life - the activities that fill up each day. Its study leads to a greater understanding of how people view, orchestrate, draw meaning from, and improve their lives, as well as the satisfaction that they draw from life. Broad in perspective, Introduction to Occupation: The Art and Science of Living brings together an outstanding team of authors to explore both informal and formal ways for studying occupation.

    Features:
  • Discusses numerous ways to learn about occupation through observation.
  • Details formal and informal ranges of research methods.
  • Presents a framework for occupation across the lifespan.
  • Highlights how identity is shaped by occupation.
  • Outlines social responsibilities that result from occupations.
  • Companion Website - www.prenhall.com/christiansen - provides interactive self-assessment with instant feedback.
