This text specifically focuses on how environments (physical, social, cultural, institutional) can be used by occupational therapists to enable occupational performance with all types of clients. It should provide a framework to think about how environments fit into occupational therapy theory and practice. Examples of different approaches to occupational therapy intervention involving environments are demonstrated. Community settings, institutions, mental health, pediatrics, hand rehabilitation, health promotions and gerontology are just a few of the areas covered. Each chapter contains ""real world"" scenarios from occupational therapists about how the environment can be used to optimize occupational performance.

"It provides invigorating reading for experienced practitioners and educators, like myself, and inspiration for students and younger practitioners who have discovered roadblocks to occupational performance narrowly focused on the individual occupational issues, and their immediate environment. Using Environments to Enable Occupational Performance is a scholarly and comprehensively referenced book guiding readers to the sources of evidence that support each chapter. The accessibility of the content is enhanced by explicit chapter titles and an engaging style, making this book one you will want to return to on a regular basis." -- Glenys French, Australian Occupational Therapy Journal "Using Environments to Enable Occupational Performance" provides state of the art information on theoretical and practical aspects of the environment crucial to enabling occupation. This book fills an important gap in the occupational therapy literature.
