Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The positive impact of occupation and well-being has been documented throughout the literature, however, the direct link of using OBP and improvement of client outcomes has not been well established. This research study considered what OBP is, what the constructs are that comprise it, and how facilitators and barriers impact its use. Four main constructs of OBP were discovered, as well as the theory of OT’s dynamic use of OBP.
