This module will enable you to draw on the introductory occupational therapy knowledge and learning, to explore how people engage in their occupations and identify the influences on their performance.
The module runs all day on a Thursday during the Spring term alongside the modules HS173- Informing Sciences 1, HS140- Interprofessional Working and Development and HS176 Concepts of Therapy. In the summer term there will be 1 session per week on a Wednesday morning following practice placement 1, alongside the modules HS174- Informing Sciences 2, HS140 -Interprofessional Working and Development and HS176 - Concepts of Therapy. You will draw upon the learning from previous modules, as well as experiences you have gained from your first exploratory placement in order to develop your understanding of the occupational nature of human beings. You will consider the potential influences upon occupational engagement and performance, in order to further progress your understanding of the theoretical framework that underpins occupational therapy. Therefore there is greater emphasis on your self-directed learning and engagement, which is supported by tutor-led and small study group activities.
