Movement Disorders Rehabilitation


The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive overview of the most important movement disorders and describe the rehabilitation tools available for each disease. The management of movement disorders is challenging since most of these diseases are not curable and hardly treatable. Many of the disorders are chronic or degenerative diseases, therefore patients develop motor complications that could improve with rehabilitation interventions. 
Movement Disorders Rehabilitation intends to serve as a practical guide on the field, attracting the interest of professionals and researchers on the fields of neurology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and other correlated therapies.

Low Vision Rehabilitation: A Practical Guide for Occupational Therapists


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Mitchell Scheiman OD FCOVD FAAO, Maxine Scheiman, Stephen G. Whittaker PhD FAAO OTR/L CLVT

Low vision rehabilitation is rapidly growing as a specialty practice for occupational therapists. This growth requires practical, evidence-based information on the evaluation and treatment of the effects of low vision on occupational performance. Responding to this need, Low Vision Rehabilitation: A Practical Guide for Occupational Therapists blends standards of practice that have been developed over 50 years by low vision therapists and optometrists, with the latest scientific research and the unique perspective of occupational therapists.

Low Vision Rehabilitation presents an emerging model in which occupational therapists practice as part of a team of vision rehabilitation professionals serving adults with low vision. Occupational therapists offer a unique contribution to the vision rehabilitation team, with a focus on meaningful occupational goals, the incorporation of occupation into therapy, and the orchestration of environmental, social, and non-visual personal factors into a treatment plan. Mitchell Scheiman, Maxine Scheiman, and Stephen Whittaker have developed a practical and straightforward text outlining an evaluation approach to interventions that focus on recovering occupational performance in adults.

• Provides valuable information on how to start an independent practice in low vision rehabilitation

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Marilyn B. Cole MS OTR/L FAOTA

Cole, has been updated to a Fourth Edition, offering strategies and learning tools to place clients in effective groups for enhanced therapeutic interventions.

 

Building on the original seven steps for learning group leadership, and keeping with the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Second Edition this text examines group dynamics from a therapeutic and wellness perspective.  It reviews descriptions of how Occupational Therapy group leaders apply multiple levels of professional reasoning to maximize the therapeutic value of group interactions.  Recent examples and evidence are also included in this Fourth Edition to reflect the design and use of groups for evaluation and intervention within the newly evolving paradigm of occupational therapy. 

 

Features Inside the Fourth Edition:

·         Practice exercises and applications within groups, such as conflict resolution and social learning techniques

·         Overview of complexity theory and its application to groups

·         A format for designing groups for many specific settings and populations within OT practice (writing group protocols)

·         Six-session group laboratory exercise and format for students to learn and expand their cultural competence

·         Six-session group laboratory exercise for students entitled “Developing Your Professional Self” addressing the transition from student to practitioner

·         A structure for designing and leading wellness or therapeutic groups in the community as a service learning project for students

 

Beginning with a client-centered theoretical approach, the 7-step format provides guidelines for the adaptation of group structure and leadership according to different theoretical perspectives.  Section 2 provides reviews and applications of the most common occupation based theories including several new occupation based models and frames of reference for designing and leading groups for a wide range of populations. 

 

Instructors in educational settings can visit www.efacultylounge.com for additional material to be used for teaching in the classroom.

 

Newly added sections expand the application of leadership skills such as professional leadership, focus group leadership, and team leadership.  Current literature has been incorporated throughout, continuing the over 21 year tradition of education for all levels of occupational therapy students and professionals.
