Abstract

When I did my training, the 4th edition of Occupational therapy and physical dysfunction was the set text with its emphasis on principles, skills and practice, but very much based on the ‘physical conditions’ that occupational therapists were likely to come across in hospitals or in the community. By contrast, the 6th edition of Occupational therapy and physical dysfunction, edited by a completely new team, is similar in name only. With its emphasis on enabling occupation, it examines a much wider world view for occupational therapists and is as relevant to those working in mental health as it is to physical occupational therapists and, in fact, challenges the dichotomy that persists in our profession.
