DLW in Supported Housing Fieldwork
Occupational Therapy Department
Monash University, Peninsula Campus
Libby Callaway is an Occupational Therapist and faculty member at Monash University in Australia. She is also the director of an occupational therapy practice, Neuroskills Pty Ltd, providing community-based services to people with neurotrauma. At Monash, one of her team’s community initiatives features supported housing for individuals with disabilities. Libby has been incorporating the DLW framework with health professional students who are doing fieldwork in the supported housing, in order to guide their thinking and conversations with tenants regarding activity patterns, health and well-being. Libby and collaborators have also developed the Community Integration Questionnaire-Revised (CIQ-R), which is now available under the tools and resources section.
