dc.description.abstractStatement of context There is ongoing debate about therapists' use of occupation-focused language in practice. Through practice language analysis we explored how conceptual models influence therapists' word choice by re-analysing qualitative data from a survey of occupational therapists' knowledge and beliefs about alcohol use amongst older people. Critical reflection on practice We used word clouds to analyse practitioners' responses about whether they used conceptual models in practice. We reflect on three themes: theories that mirror the realities of practice; shaping theories in action; and 'considered' practice. Implications for practice Conceptual models shape, and are shaped by, the language of practice. This provides insight into the relationship between models, language and professional identity.
dc.description.abstractOur Research Report for 2000-2002 reflects an outstanding level of achievement throughout the institution and demonstrates once again our high level of commitment to strategic and applied research particularly in areas that enhance the quality of life.
