Abstract

Some therapeutic practices and occupational therapy in particular, demand forms of engagement that promote healing following illness, disability, and/or trauma. Qualities of engagement in therapeutic practices will be analyzed in terms of the interrelatedness of the social actors and the investment in the doing of occupations, the participation in living and learning in everyday life. Interpretive examples will be provided from an interdisciplinary, longitudinal, urban, ethnographic study of a cohort of African American children, their families, and practitioners who serve them and their engagement in healthcare encounters.
