Abstract

As the occupational therapy profession embraces the developing occupational science, several occupational therapy educational programs are incorporating a baccalaureate degree in occupational science into their educations programs (1). This paper presentation describes one of the courses offered in such a program to address the area of context. The course introduces students to the concept of context and its relationship to person and occupation (2, 3). Physical, temporal, sociocultural and socioeconomic contexts are explored with regard to their effects on participation in occupation (4). The influence of healthy vs. unhealthy contexts, as well as issues of occupational risk, access, generational influence and contextual interdependence is examined (5). Contexts are discussed with regard to how they can influence change in the community through participation in a community practice experience.
