The prevailing view of Occupational Therapy is to be client-centered, exploring the quality of one's life with a focus on daily occupation (Self-care, Productivity and Leisure). Occupational Therapists believe occupational engagement is created through doing, being, becoming and belonging. This includes - Volition (Values, Interests, Personal causation), Performance Patterns (Habits, Roles, Routines) and Performance Capacity (Mental and physical attributes including lived experiences). Occupational Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy are interrelated and complimentary in nature. This list serves as a forum for clinicians, scientists, and students who are members of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS) to share, discuss and support current developments between ACT and OT. This includes how the two can continue to bring change to not only the people we meet within our roles and routines but also as individuals who embrace these concepts as their own.
