Abstract

Panel

Discussing the transformative functioning of occupation

Topic: Emerging understanding on the transformative functioning of occupation

Purpose/ aims: To discuss different contemporary understandings on the transformative functioning of occupation.

Methods: The discussion is grounded in research consolidation comparing and combining results or other output from multiple previously conducted research and theory.

Intent Argument: Based on our own research trajectories as well as on analysis of existing theory suggestions on how occupation is transformative will be presented juxtaposed and challenged. The discussions will draw on transactional perspectives based on such theoretical traditions as pragmatism- (John Dewey), Narrative - in – action (Ricoeur, Bruner and Mattingly) Personal construct theory (eg Kelly, Sarbin, Little and Baumeister) Intrinsic motivation theory (e g,White, Bandura, Deci & Ryan, etc), and Developmental theory (Piaget, Erikson, Baltes, etc),

Importance to occupational science: Occupation is used in variety of programs and interventions: the underlying rational for this use is not always explicit and few well-developed theoretical notions exist to support this use. It is therefore relevant to encourage dialogue about the theoretical underpinnings for viewing occupation as a transformational phenomenon as well as sketching hypothesis on future development of theory on the transformative functioning of occupation.

Objectives for discussion

(1) To give participants better insight into known and inferred theoretical groundings supporting the transformative functioning of occupation

(2) To discuss examples of how these theoretical groundings propose transformation as result of engagement in occupation.

(3) To give participants possibilities to identify and discuss developments needed in future theory to better support and tailor programs to draw on transformative functioning of occupation.

Key Words: Theory, transformative functioning, occupation
