Recovery Through Activity by Sue Parkinson (2014)

Recovery Through Activity is underpinned by the Model of Human Occupation. The book:

  • provides comprehensive evidence regarding the value of activity along with a wealth of resources to support implementation of an occupation focused intervention
  • enables service users to recognize the long-term benefits of occupational participation by exploring the value of a range of activities
  • provides occupational therapists with a valuable tool to support the use of their core skills
  • helps to refocus the practice of occupational therapy in mental health on occupation - enhancing the quality of service user care in mental health
