The book covers the three primary proficiencies: understanding occupation in context, developing design skills, and applying occupation in practice. This innovative approach focuses on the interactive process of designing client-centered interventions, building a bridge between occupational science, and its application in occupational therapy.

"After briefly looking over the book, it appears to be a great book for a basic OT theory course or intro course." -- Claudia Miller, MHS, OTR/L, Cincinnati State College, Cincinnati, Ohio
