This book is a one-stop resource that offers a unique combination of evidence-based methods for adult learning and coping strategy development, and will provide you with the tools to lead such groups or to develop your own.

It includes 30 ready-to-implement learning designs for coping strategy groups with corresponding handouts!

The first section explores foundations of occupational therapy theory, adult learning theory using Kolb’s experiential model, Kirkpatrick’s model of learning evaluation and the recovery model. The occupational therapy program and interventions at The Ottawa Hospital acute mental health unit are described. Case vignettes illustrate how the theory is applied to practice.

The second section of the book offers step-by-step modules to promote client learning (knowledge, skills, attitude shifts) in areas of goal setting, healthy lifestyles, effective communication, constructive self-talk, stress management, relaxation, self-esteem, values and resilience. Each module is user friendly. The modules include a variety of hands-on activities, questions to facilitate learning, points for discussion, practical applications, and an evaluation component to prove the learning is working. Though the modules are written for training in groups, there is indication of how the learning can be modified for use with individual clients.

The final section provides over 80 handouts on a USB flash drive! Clients use these handouts to apply the concepts they have learned to what is meaningful in their current situation. By using such tools as communication scripts, daily schedules, personal inventories, thought, feeling and behaviour mapping, clients are encouraged to prioritize health and safety needs, and to embrace choice.

Use these tools to get clients back to doing what they need and want to do in their day. Written by occupational therapists, this book may be used by a variety of health care professionals and teachers working to promote recovery.
