Unlike earlier editions, this updated Third Edition debuts during a time when even casual searchers can readily find huge amounts of information on the internet with the click of a search button. To remain relevant, this Third Edition goes beyond simply providing an annotated bibliography of peer-reviewed literature by also giving readers an analysis and synthesis of these documents in a clear and compelling organizational structure.
Led by Mary Ann McColl, Mary Law, and Debra Stewart, Theoretical Basis of Occupational Therapy, Third Edition also offers an appendix that catalogs the literature included. In each of the determinants of occupation chapters, the contributors have extracted key themes, followed threads of theoretical development, reflected on external influences of occupational therapy theory, and commented particularly on developments over the last 15 years.

"This book offers a straightforward way to understand occupational theories and occupation and suggests how practitioners should organize information to better serve clients. For academicians, it offers a condensed way to help students conceptualize theory and models and understand what occupation is all about. The authors do a fantastic job of clarifying the differences among the models and focusing on the unique aspects of how occupation promotes the health and wellbeing of all individuals. Most importantly, the extensive literature review concentrates an abundance of information on OT models and occupation, which helps to further solidify what OT practitioners do and why we do it."
