Restoring the Spirit: The Beginnings of Occupational Therapy in Canada, 1890-1930

The Beginnings of Occupational Therapy in Canada, 1890-1930

Tracing the influence of popular political and social movements of the time, including the Mental Hygiene, Arts and Crafts, and Settlement House movements, Judith Friedland tells the stories of pioneering women in the field and describes how they established professional associations, workshops, and educational programs. She highlights the help they received from male physicians, which gave them access to those with decision-making power, and examines their work in both rural and urban environments with those from different economic and ethnic backgrounds. An informative look at the origins of a field that now has over thirteen thousand practitioners in Canada, Restoring the Spirit is also the compelling story of the rise of working women and their crucial contributions to the history of health care.

Author: Judith Friedland is professor emerita in the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto.

Powerful Resource May 24, 2016 11:21 AM
By: Jessica Walsh

"Friedland has produced a powerful resource for occupational therapy. Best of all, it was a pleasure to read. I really had no idea of the complex forces at work in the development of my profession. the many experiences I have had over the years now make more sense." - Donna Campbell
