NZ Education and Health | SECONDHAND

"This amusing and informative story of development and experiences in the early years of occupational therapy is told largely in the voices of those who were there." Legacy of Occupation provides a lively account of the early years of occupational therapy in New Zealand. Personal stories, recollections, photographs and archival material have been gathered into twelve themed chapters. Accounts of personal experiences reveal much about career choice and how it influenced individual lives. These women held values, beliefs and traditions centred on occupation and its therapeutic application. In the pioneering days they established services in remote mental hospitals, military and general hospitals, TB sanitora and community services. Their legacy of using occupation with meaning towards health and wellbeing, contributes to current practice.
