Book Description

Discovery Through Activity provides a compendium of ideas, resources and practice evaluations that will inspire practitioners to be even more imaginative, and to customise their own Recovery Through Activity programmes to meet the specific needs of participants.

The original Recovery Through Activity handbook offers a flexible programme that is widely used in adult mental health settings. This accompanying and complementary resource shows how the intervention has been extended, adapted, and applied service-wide. The resource showcases the work of a growing community of practitioners who have successfully facilitated Recovery Through Activity programmes to provide a forum for people to reflect on their occupational lives and discuss and practise lifestyle choices to improve their health and wellbeing.

It includes:

  • An extended range of flexible ideas and resources to meet the needs of participants in Recovery through Activity sessions
  • Examples of how to apply Recovery Through Activity in one-to-one sessions and virtual groups
  • Encouragement to adopt Recovery Through Activity across your services with confidence

With contributions illustrating the effective application of Recovery Through Activity in a range of settings and situations, this is a valuable resource for occupational therapists and other practitioners in mental health settings.

Biography

Sue Parkinson is known in the Occupational Therapy profession for her contributions to the Model of Human Occupation (MOHO), most notably in relation to the assessment manual for the Model of Human Occupation Screening Tool (MOHOST), the handbook for the Recovery Through Activity programme, and the textbook A Guide to the Formulation of Plans and Goals in Occupational Therapy.

The Recovery Through Activity programme was informed by her experiences as a Practice Development Adviser, supporting occupational therapists in mental health settings to consolidate their occupation-centred practice. In more recent years, her work has focused on providing MOHO training, primarily in the United Kingdom and Ireland. In doing so, she has had the satisfaction of making innumerable professional contacts and is delighted to share some of the work that has arisen from her exchanges in Discovery Through Activity.

Reviews

Discovery Through Activity builds upon its well-received predecessor and is the product of extensive investigation and collaboration. Its success, at least in part, lies in the fact that it draws on the ideas and experiences of a wide range of occupational therapists and healthcare workers, to further demonstrate what can be achieved in practice.

The important and essential, contents of this handbook, and their impeccable delivery, render it to be of immense worth to those who are involved (or are prospectively involved) in the provision and management (and receipt) of occupational therapy. It will also be of great value to other therapists and indeed, their service users. Accordingly, its wide readership is very strongly urged.
