Development of an Occupational Therapy Practice Perspective in a Homeless Shelter: A Fieldwork Experience.
Heubner, Joanne; Tryssenaar, Joyce
Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, v63 n1 p24-32 Apr 1996
An occupational therapy student's journal describes a clinical experience in a homeless shelter. Key themes were residents' search for meaning in life and the student's search for meaning in the therapist role; the importance of rapport; and residents' innate drive toward purposeful activity, which the student was able to address.
