A Mother's Occupation: OT for Mothers with Hard-to-Parent Children
Author: Rondalyn Whitney, OT, PhD
The goal of this program is to explain why an occupational therapy evaluation and intervention should include the occupations embedded in the role of mother, when treating pediatric clients with mental health disorders. After you study the information presented here, you will be able to —
- Identify why addressing the needs of mothers is essential to the progress of children in treatment.
- Use the Occupational Profile as a critical element in the evaluation and intervention process for pediatric occupational therapy.
- Apply the new Occupational Therapy Practice Framework to support greater normalizing routines, habits, and rituals for mothers of hard-to-parent children.
