The landscape of mental health and addiction practice in Canada is changing, and there are strong lobbying efforts regarding the regulation and funding of counselling and psychotherapy services. It is important to understand how occupational therapists are positioned within this national landscape of mental health service delivery. The purpose of this survey is: a) to explore how occupational therapists across Canada incorporate psychotherapy approaches in their practice when working with clients who have mental health disorders (including substance use disorders); b) to explore perceptions of the relationship between psychotherapy approaches (e.g., CBT, mindfulness, motivational interviewing) and models of enabling occupation; and c) to understand opportunities and barriers to incorporating counselling and/or psychotherapy in occupational therapy practice. Even if you don’t incorporate these approaches in your practice or are unsure about whether you do, we want to hear from you!
There are 40 questions in this survey.
