Brief Reflective Guide

The Brief Reflective Guide was developed for people living with mood disorder. This tool is based on the concepts of the DLW model and its goal is to promote occupation in a perspective of health and well-being.

It allows to obtain information about the client, but it’s also an exercise that enables introspection and discussion about the important aspect of the activity patterns.
