This is the first book to be published that focusses specifically on the use of the coaching approach and coaching conversations in occupational therapy. It’s the outcome of an international collaboration of over 15 occupational therapists from five continents who have trained in coaching and are using coaching in their occupational therapy practices.
Enabling Positive Change will appeal to practising therapists, students, those interested in teaching coaching for occupational therapy and it will assist occupational therapy scholars in identifying research questions that need to be asked going forward.
* Case scenarios illustrating how coaching can be put into practice
* Stories from occupational therapists worldwide about the uses and impacts of coaching
* Program information on coaching education and certification
* A call to action to enhance professional competencies through coaching, to help address serious world problems by enabling positive human change
