OCCT12002 - Occupational Justice: Local and Global

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit, you will be introduced to the evolving concept of occupational justice and explore situations where people are deprived of meaningful occupation. You will use an occupational justice lens to look from a local and global perspective at situations where people are experiencing challenges with occupational participation and engagement. The role of the occupational therapist as a facilitator of occupational justice will be examined, using both an occupational justice framework and also occupational therapy practice models. You will develop an understanding of how occupational justice sits with social justice concepts and considerations, including concepts such as social innovation.
