Mission/Objectives

The mission of the OT-SIG includes the following:
1. To promote collaboration within a growing community with an interest in how Contextual Behavioral Science informs Occupational Therapy Practice and how Occupational Therapy Practice may inform Contextual Behavioral Science.
2. Collaboration may include efforts to support clinical application, education, research, resource development, and/or publication specific to the application of Contextual Behavioral Science to Occupational Therapy.

General Interest Area to be Specifically Addressed

Quality of life with a focus on daily Occupation (Self-care, Productivity and Leisure) is the core of Occupational Therapy Practice. This group would focus on the performance components of Occupation which are Volition (Values, Interests, Personal causation), Performance Patterns (Habits, Roles, Routines) and Performance Capacity (Mental and physical attributes including lived experiences) and how this relates to psychological flexibility in daily practice.

SIG Activities

The group is having a great start as new members are becoming members of ACBS and OT-SIG!
