Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The value of family-centered care is identified in the literature, highlighting the need for therapists to use a variety of approaches. However, there is limited evidence as to how to best provide care with families dealing with complex contexts such as language, cultural, and social-economic differences. This session will provide the perspectives of eight OTs who identified strategies to support the primary caregiver and ways in which to build therapeutic alliances.
