Abstract

“A Theory of Occupational Agency: An International Investigation of
Occupational Therapists’ Negotiations.”
A core belief of the occupational therapy paradigm is the essential need to engage in meaningful and purposeful occupation to enable health and wellbeing. Investigations of the occupational therapists “occupation” are concerned with what we do, rather than why we do it. Occupational science and theory have permitted understanding of the value of occupation. However, investigation is required to understand the therapist agency and negotiations of being occupational therapists within the structures that are part of and
surround our practice. This understanding will contribute to evidence base to enable the occupational therapist to carry out their role with meaningful and purposeful intent.
