Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This presentation focuses on the benefits of using SAH in educating OT students about schizophrenia and related conditions. Drawing from a mixed-methods study in which participants performed student-relevant occupations paired with SAH, the author highlights the benefits of combining SAH with performance of occupations of varying degrees of difficulty. This appears to optimize learning and help build empathy toward people living with mental illness.
