Occupational Therapist Resume

Occupational Therapist resume is written by such professional doctors who specialize in treating patients for their psychological and physical aspects. The field of occupational therapy is very vast and there are different categories of specialists: adult rehabilitation, pediatrics, Hand therapy, ergonomics, vision rehabilitation, community consultation, and assisted living care therapy. Apart from these specialties, there exists different kinds of therapies like:

  • Occupational therapy for adult patients - The therapists work closely with the elderly people and help them cope up with the many challenges that come along with the old age. The aim is to make them self-sufficient and independent.

  • Occupational therapy for mentally and/ or emotionally challenged - The therapist works with people facing mental and/ or emotional problems in coping with life, maybe after a traumatic experience. They help them in acquiring social skills in order to function and comprehend things in a better way.

  • Occupational therapists for working professionals - These therapists work with corporate companies, police force and defense establishments that are their clients. They can be approached by the employees to talk about work related stress, effects of some traumatic/ shock experience felt in the line of duty (especially by police and defense personnels). The therapists help them in coming to terms with the past and embracing the present and future.

According to the theory advocated by the Occupational Performance Model (OPM), the level of an individual's health and personal satisfaction depends upon how well he has adjusted to his work environment and how well is he performing in such environment. This is thus, the aim of the occupational therapist to make sure that his patients are feeling good about themselves and the circumstances of their life- be it professional life, personal life or the age factor.
