Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

OTs are uniquely qualified to address mental-health needs and functional implications. A pilot wellness program co-led by integrative health and therapists utilized breath management, visualization, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral methods to promote healthy coping mechanisms. It was developed as an adjunct therapy and a nonpharmacological modality to enhance quality of life and promote a safe transition to community for adult patients on an acute rehabilitation unit.
