Summary

To understand who we are and where we are going,
we first need to understand who we were and where we came from.
 
 
The History of Occupational Therapy: The First Century by Drs. Lori T. Andersen and Kathlyn L. Reed follows a chronological timeline, providing discussions and reflections on the influence of various personalities, politics, legislation and policy, economics, socio-cultural values, technology, and educational factors that led to the progressive maturation of the profession.
 
The History of Occupational Therapy: The First Century includes photographs of pioneers, leaders, and advocates of occupational therapy; pictures of occupational therapy artifacts, including newspaper clippings and historical documents; maps showing historical locations in occupational therapy practice and education; and sidebars that give glimpses into personalities and events.
 
Features:
  • The only historical book on the profession’s first 100 years
  • Scholarly book for teaching, professional, and personal use
  • State-of-the-art materials to support teaching available at www.efacultylounge.com
  • Features glimpses into occupational therapy personalities
 
The History of Occupational Therapy: The First Century provides all occupational therapy practitioners and occupational therapy students with a historical context of the profession. Generous use of photographs and illustrations create a visually stimulating and scholarly book that provides the historical context of the profession, from the formative stages in the 18th century to the eve of the Centennial Celebration in 2017, as well as a glimpse into the future.
 
 
“History can tell us that the seeming hardship, the self-doubts of efficacy, the searching for our roots are actually precursors for establishing a new strategic vision and plan that could put us in the forefront of progress.”
Robert Bing, President, American Occupational Therapy Association, 1983
