049 – Meaning and Occupational Engagement

This is an emerging topic for me. It’s something for which I’ve seen a correlation for many many years. Now is the stage in my career where I’m starting to explore this more in-depth. Meaning is arguably the most important aspect of a person’s occupation. Yet, in my experience, it is also one of the most neglected or least understood areas of our practice.

This episode I wanted to take some time to reflect on my thought process and how “meaning” has evolved over my career.

I make reference to an article during the episode that has recently provided me with some food for thought around this:

Morris, K., Cox, DL. (2017) Developing a descriptive framework for “occupational engagement” Journal of Occupational Science 24 (2), 152-164

Would love to hear your thoughts on “meaning” and how you see it relating to occupational therapy! Shoot me an email or a voice mail! All links in the profile.
