Read this article from Nadine Larrivère, erg. PhD. In this article written for the general public, the author explains how occupational therapy uses activities to contribute to health, well-being and quality of life. She suggests different reflective exercises about activities that we do every day and the impact that they may have on our lives so that we can organize our daily routines to help us deal with this particular situation.
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. The purpose of this guide is to engage the person in a discussion about his or her pattern of activity. 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.
