Chapter from “Promoting occupational participation: Collaborative relationship-focused occupational therapy”
This chapter explores concepts relating to occupational therapy research, education, occupation, and practice. Niki and co-authors introduce critically reflective practices to promote equity, justice, and rights in the profession.
Some practices suggested for OTs, community members, students, and researchers include:
- Creating universally accessible spaces and opportunities for participation
- Training in anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and decolonializing practices
- Connecting with diverse individuals and communities for fieldwork and research opportunities
