Description

This volume addresses the problems the OT profession faces recruiting students into mental health as a practice specialty. The content reflects several efforts at engaging students in the exploration of the variety of available career paths in this area. Educators, supervisors, clinicians, and students facing career choices will be able to take a unique perspective on specialty selection after reviewing the thoughts, perspectives, theories, and philosophies of some of occupational therapy’s foremost leaders in mental health. In addition, readers will get an “up close” opportunity to review one institution’s efforts to educate and recruit level II fieldwork students through an all-day program designed to expose them to the widest possible range of practice opportunities.
