Occupational therapy and occupational science: Moving forward as allies


In this talk, Prof. Dr. Debbie Laliberte Rudman addresses the potential for occupational therapy and occupational science to forge productive, critically-informed alliances that support occupation-based socially transformative work. Key directions to expand conditions of possibility in occupational science are forwarded as means to enable the fostering of collaborative partnerships of the discipline and profession with collectives experiencing occupational injustices.

Debbie Rudman will present her work and research, which attends to the socio-political and discursive shaping of social issues, occupational possibilities, and occupational inequities, such as long-term unemployment, the extension of working lives, and precarious aging. After her talk, there is time for plenary discussions about the topic and dialogue regarding participants’ ideas, experiences and questions. Participants are invited to bring along theoretical reflections as well as questions and discussions about own (scientific or practise) projects.
