Career Choices: A Comparison of Two Occupational Therapy Practice Groups.
Wilkins, Seanne; Rosenthal, Carolyn
Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, v68 n1 p29-40 Feb 2001
Comparison of 20 occupational therapists in gerontology with 20 in pediatrics found that societal and personal values, opportunity structures, attitudes and beliefs, experiences, and the context of work influenced choice of practice setting. Academic and clinical experiences were very influential for those in pediatrics. Those in gerontology felt their specialty lacked status and respect. (SK)
