Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This poster describes how individuals living above and below the federal poverty line spend their time engaged in occupation and the meaningfulness associated with this time-use. Results from this study indicate that systematic barriers, such as poverty, may influence how individuals spend their time and the type and amount of meaning associated with their time-use. This information may be used to guide the OT process when working with individuals at varying socioeconomic levels.
