Psychosocial Frames of Reference has a successful history as a resource for planning psychosocial occupational therapy intervention. This exceptional new edition continues to provide a comprehensive description of occupational therapy and relevant psychological, social, and cognitive theories, plus ?real-life” examples that contribute to the reader’s understanding of the person and his or her mental health concerns as they influence the ability to engage in meaningful occupation. The previous editions of Psychosocial Frames of Reference prepared students to work in the mental health specialty of occupational therapy practice. The third edition continues to prepare students for mental health specialty and additionally applies psychosocial theories to practice in multiple contexts outside the field of mental health. It is a text grounded in the profession’s belief that addressing psychosocial issues is at the ?core” of all occupational therapy.

Theoretical summaries are supplemented with extensive bibliographies that the reader can explore and use as a springboard for finding evidence-for-practice.
