Play to Their Strengths!

This course promotes positive interventions for positive outcomes. Adding a strengths-based lens to your occupational or physical therapy services honors client-centered practice, and aligns with participation/occupation-focused evaluation and intervention. Peggy will share assessment tools that identify strengths, as well as several intervention approaches that use strengths as disruptors to barriers, and motivators to performance and participation.
