Abstract

The psychoeducational approach to psychiatric care is articulated, and the contributions of occupational therapists to this model in one day treatment program are described. An evaluation device (the Task Check List) developed by occupational therapists and used in psychoeducational treatment planning is presented; its use by occupational therapists and other staff is illustrated.
