Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This quasiexperimental study determined whether four homeless male veterans who partook in life-skills classes in a transitional housing program reported increased satisfaction and improved life skills according to the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM). Results of paired t-tests indicated no statistically significant change; however, all participants reported a self-perceived change of two or more points, which is clinically significant and could inform future programs and OT practice.
