Description


This anthology collates 16 unique and powerful perspectives from occupational therapists around the globe, each highlighting the culture that they are a part of and how it informs their work and care. Ranging across almost every continent in the world including stories from Aotearoa to the Gaza Strip to Dhaka and beyond, Occupational Therapy Disruptors offers a decolonised re-examination of occupational therapy through a poignant, global lens.

Based on a series of interviews conducted by Sheela Roy Ivlev, each account provides candid and personal reflections and challenges found in occupational therapy in different cultural and political contexts and inspires occupational therapists to enrich their own practice with cultural awareness and reflexivity.

With reflection prompts and calls to action at the end of each chapter, this is an invaluable resource for occupational therapists looking to develop a more diverse, culturally-informed understanding of their practice.
