When helping clients engage in the daily life activities that are meaningful to them, occupational therapy practitioners guide the formation of goals, plans for how to achieve them, and carrying out these plans. Since its introduction to the scholarly literature in 2001, the Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupation (CO-OP) has provided an evidence-based intervention approach centered on clients' goals and improving participation. The CO-OP Approach TM has been shown to be effective for various populations - from children to adults - with occupational performance issues, from DCD and ASD to more debilitating neurological conditions such as stroke.
This new text brings together in a single source the most current thinking on the CO-OP Approach's theoretical foundations, active ingredients, and potential mechanisms of action, as well as the most up-to-date evidence regarding efficacy. Building on earlier foundations, this new publication enables readers to deepen their understanding of the CO-OP Approach, learn details about how it is applied with several client populations, and become familiar with the supporting evidence for its application with various populations and in several formats.
