Creek’s Occupational Therapy and Mental Health (5th Edition) – eBook PDF
Now in its fifth edition, this seminal ebook for occupational therapy students and practitioners has preserved the comprehensive detail of prior editions with important updates, including the recovery approach informed by a social perspective. Developing settings for practice are explored and many more service users have been involved as authors, writing commentaries on 14 chapters.
All chapters are reviewed and there are also new chapters, like mental health and wellbeing, intersectionality, professional accountability, green care and working with marginalized populations. Chapter 11 is written by two people who have received occupational therapy, exploring different perspectives on the experience of using services.
This edition is separated into clear sections, exploring theory and practice issues in detail. The first section includes the historical, theoretical, and philosophical basis for occupational therapy in the promotion of mental health and wellbeing. The second section explores the occupational therapy process, followed by a third section on making sure quality in contemporary practice. The fourth section provides insights into issues arising from the changing contexts for occupational therapy including an evaluation of the implications for occupational therapy education. The fifth section has eight chapters on particular occupations that can be implemented across the varied settings which are covered in the sixth and final section.

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this ebook and would recommend it to occupational therapy students, new practitioners and more experienced practitioners who want to revive and update their knowledge” — International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, August 2008, Vol 15, No 8
“..The ebook is a remarkable achievement in the manner in which it brings together so many disparate experienced voices in mental health practice. The result is a very valuable reference ebook not only for the student practitioner, at whom it is primarily aimed but also for practicing therapists wanting to keep abreast of recent developments.” — British Journal of Occupational Therapy February 2009 72(2)
“The purpose of this ebook is to educate and inform those new to the areas of occupational therapy and mental health and to back the practice of those with more experience in the field. It does both things beautifully. The ebook manages to pack a great deal into the 500 or so pages and is highly recommended for those new to occupational therapy and mental health as it offers a broad and valuable overview of the subject.” — Dr. Jean McQueen, The Forensic Network, NHS Scotland, Jan 2015
