Psychosocial Occupational Therapy: Framing and Evaluation explores psychosocial factors and mental health conditions impacting occupational performance across the lifespan. By introducing psychosocial theories, models of practice, and frames of reference, the course provides structure for guiding client-centered screening and evaluation methods in a variety of practice settings while considering cultural, lifestyle, and contextual factors. The course emphasizes the development of therapeutic use of self, communication skills, and observation techniques. With a focus on administration and interpretation of standardized and non-standardized assessment tools relevant to psychosocial disorders and mental health conditions, the course bridges evaluation results to inform treatment planning.
