The Life Style Performance Model provides a framework for knowing and understanding a person’s total activity repertoire within the context of his or her human and nonhuman world .The model enables occupational therapy practitioners to gain a holistic perspective, thus ensuring that interventions will have more clearly discernible relevance to individual needs, interests, capacities, and self–other expectations. It presents a way of conceptualizing the interrelatedness of person, environment, activity profile, and quality of life. This article addresses these dynamic relationships in a manner that makes it possible to plan and implement interventions that hold maximum potential for eliciting and sustaining a person’s intrinsic motivation to pursue an evolving life-style optimally satisfying to self and significant others.
