Abstract

From the field of occupational science comes the notion that a person expresses her/his unique "selfhood" via meaningful activity. Vital involvement theory clarifies the importance of dynamic engagement with the world outside the self. What we do and how we engage the environment influences who we become, provides an arena for expressing who we are, and allows us to affect the environment, which then influences who we continue to become. Developed by the presenters, the Occupational Profile is a useful tool to help elders assess and modify their own activities and occupations, analyze them and make changes to maximize occupation, personal integrity and vital involvement.
