Newly updated to reflect the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, Fourth Edition (OTPF-4)Occupational and Activity Analysis, Third Edition outlines the process of conducting occupational and activity analyses for occupational therapy students and clinicians.

Occupational therapy practitioners use occupations and activities not only as a goal but also as a treatment medium, so understanding both the uniqueness of a client’s occupations and how an activity can be used therapeutically is essential. This text is an introduction to both realms, first by explaining the process by which to peel back the layers of an occupation or activity to reveal its intricacy and then examining how to use this information for evaluation and intervention.

Dr. Heather Thomas has updated Occupational and Activity Analysis, Third Edition to reflect the significant changes made to the activity analysis process and terminology in the OTPF-4. Conducting either an occupational or activity analysis investigates not only what is required for full participation but also looks at the meaning ascribed to it by the people, groups, or communities engaging in it and how personal and environmental contexts impact participation.
