Postmodernism and its application to the field of occupational therapy

N. Weinblatt, M. Avrech-Bar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article presents both the general concept of postmodernism and its reflection in a wide array of fields of interest. In particular, the paper reviews the postmodernist perspective as it appears in healthcare and medicine. This leads to a postmodernist analysis of the profession of occupational therapy, the main conclusion being that occupational therapy combines elements of modernism and postmodernism. This gives occupational therapy clinicians the luxury of enjoying the best of both worlds.
