To lead effective groups, occupational therapists must develop the skills of group facilitation, design group experiences using different frames of reference, and adapt group interventions to a broad range of client populations. This revised third edition incorporates the AOTA's Occupational Therapy Practice Framework and provides an updated perspective on the design and use of groups in emerging practice areas. The author explains how group activities can serve the needs of clients with similar physical disabilities and mental health issues by working on shared goals and providing a context of cultural and social support for engagement in occupation. Throughout this work, both theory and application are updated with regard to the AOTA's Occupational Therapy Practice Framework and the WHO's International Classification of Functioning. New chapter topics include client-centered groups, groups as social contexts, and a laboratory experience for students in developing cultural competence. The 7-step format for group leadership has been adapted for use in six different frames of reference: psychodynamic, behavioral and cognitive behavioral, cognitive disabilities, developmental, sensorimotor, and the model of human occupation. This processing method teaches students and therapists how to maximize client participation, facilitate group interaction, reinforce learning, and individualize application of occupational principles.

In this edition, we describe four levels of theory that incorporate most of the profession's knowledge base, as well as the broad external health care models within which we practice, teach, and conduct research. They are as follows: Broad models of health and wellness (medical, public health, client-centered, recovery) Professional paradigm (occupation focused, holistic, client centered, and complex systems oriented) based upon the occupational therapy philosophy, ethics, professional position papers, and guidelines from the OTPF3 (AOTA, 2014) Preface to the Second Edition Occupation-based models (addressing the complex interactions among person, environment, and occupation that enable occupational performance and participation) Frames of reference (tools for occupational therapists to guide assessment and intervention with specific disability areas that represent barriers to clients' meeting their occupational goals) These levels are presented according to their broadness of focus. The broadest are the health and wellness models, which are shaped by national and global trends within political, economic, social, and cultural systems. We focus on how occupational therapy theory has evolved and the way these larger systems have interacted and influenced our profession. We then look at how our profession's leaders describe various dimensions of the new paradigm of occupation, incorporating the complex, dynamic, and nonlinear systems theories that have generated the epistemological shift to multidimensional professional reasoning and contextual knowing"--

This book examines the occupational therapy paradigm (its focal viewpoint, core constructs, and values) as well as the role of complexity/chaos theory as a scientific framework for occupational therapy research and practice. Unlike other current OT texts, this book uses clinical case examples to illustrate application of proposed changes to make procedures consistent with the latest Occupational Therapy Practice Framework. The reader walks away with a clear grasp of the theoretical principles guiding his or her treatment interventions, the explanations behind those principles, and the applicable intervention for said techniques and procedures. An emphasis on clinical-reasoning skills, including information on different types of reasoning skills as well as the MAPP model of teaching helps the student and clinician translate theoretical principles into practice. The section on specific interventions addresses each of the conceptual practice models according to a consistent chapter template, which enables the reader to apply conceptual practice models in real-world contexts. Preview questions at the beginning of each chapter alert the reader to important concepts in the upcoming text. Critical analysis of the theoretical core provides suggested modifications to increase consistency with the new occupational therapy paradigm.

In this extremely practical guide, Julie Phillips argues that preparation is the most important element in running successful groups, and explores the issues that practitioners should address. She demonstrates how to prepare effectively, drawing on eight extended case studies with a variety of groups ranging from a positive parenting group to an anger management group. She examines the initial decisions that must be made such as determining the size, purpose and goals of a group, and finding an appropriate meeting place. Anti-discriminatory practice, with an emphasis on power, race and gender issues, is highlighted as a fundamental consideration in planning a group. Phillips underpins her recommendations for practice with the theories behind groupwork and includes frameworks for analysing the effectiveness of group programmes. Groupwork in Social Care will be essential reading for students and qualified professionals working in the fields of occupational therapy, youth work, social work, probation and community mental health nursing.
