A number of my own beloved occupations revolve around books. Reading them, writing them, collecting them, looking at the towers of unread books that may well collapse on top of me any moment! As an avid reader and a writer/aspiring author I knew that moving into Independent Practice would be as much about my passion for books as well as for occupational therapy.
The first book I am working on for 2020 is a collaborative project called “We Are OT” – this will briefly explore the history of, but mainly focus on, personal accounts of diversity within OT. You can find out more, including how to contribute on the blog post here.
This will be available as an ebook launching on World OT Day (27th October 2020). Books will be sold for a minimum donation with all profits going to setting up a small 2021 scholarship fund for Black student/s training in Britain.
My second and solo project is something I have been considering for a while. “An OT CPD Activity a Day” will be a coil bound creative journal to inspire your continuing professional development. The initial blog post which includes the price and purchase link can be found here.
