And, remaining still, is the one great incentive for preventing war -- seeking a more complete understanding of why such conflicts occur. Admittedly, we are inundated with hypotheses concerning the causes of war.
Mattingly went on to explain that theories are concerned with what can be reliably predicted to hold true across the majority of cases. Some practitioners accept that the outcomes of working with people in the context of their daily lives can never be entirely predictable: The practitioner who takes her practical skills and knowledge for granted and puts clinical reasoning in the foreground is the thinker.
Thinking means using the mind, exercising it in a positive, active way. It includes such mental actions as applying rules, choosing, conceptualising, evaluating, judging, justifying, knowing, perceiving and understanding. These are not exclusively professional actions but are the types of thinking used by all people as they go about their daily lives.
Thinking skills and strategies enable people to survive and to meet their needs within an increasingly complex and constantly changing world. In complex, threatening situations, people have to try to understand what is going on and work out the best ways of coping, rather than responding instinctively or habitually to circumstances: The practice of occupational therapy is not independent of its social context but is subject to the same pressures and predicaments that abound in daily life.
This means that thinking has to be an integral part of being a professional: The occupational therapist has to be able to process a range of information if she is to select the most appropriate course of action with an individual client, within a specific treatment context, in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
She has to be aware of, and take account of Creek, These include his personal history and life experience, his language and culture, his thoughts, beliefs, values and aspirations, his relationships and occupations, and his needs, problems and goals. In order to deal with all this information, and to incorporate it into the decision-making process, the therapist has to be able to think quickly and flexibly, using a variety of styles of thinking.
A study of how occupational therapists think in practice, commissioned in the s by the American Occupational Therapy Association and the American Occupational Therapy Foundation Mattingly and Gillette,introduced the idea of the therapist with a three-track mind. The tracks are three distinctly different ways of thinking in practice, depending on the nature of the problem being addressed and the purpose of reasoning.
The experienced therapist generates and tests alternative hypotheses, actively seeking and interpreting patterns of cues in order to select the most appropriate treatment medium. However, the less experienced therapist is more likely to seek what she perceives as the right answer, rather than considering multiple possibilities.
This is used during face-to-face encounters, when the therapist is trying to understand the client as an individual — what he sees as his problems, how he feels about treatment, what his likes and dislikes are and what his aspirations are.
This allows the therapist to match treatment aims and strategies accurately to the individual and to adjust them as the intervention progresses. This form of reasoning places the client within his wider context. The therapist thinks about the whole experience of the client and his family, before and after the illness or accident, the social and physical contexts in which they live and the meanings that the illness or disability has for them.
She thinks about alternative outcomes and possible ways in which the illness experience might change or be changed. This condition was dependent. Subsequent work by Sinclair see Chapter 8 explored further the complex and multilayered nature of thinking in occupational therapy.
The Sinclair Matrix of Clinical Reasoning incorporates five distinct types of reasoning: This is a process of thinking about what we are doing, in collaboration with others, so that we reach a shared understanding of goals and means Nixon and Creek, Mattingly and Flemingin the American clinical reasoning study, found that the way the therapist uses each type of thinking is different depending on her experience.
However, the experienced therapist is able to move rapidly and smoothly from one form of thinking to another: The therapist does not know what techniques or theories c The therapist who practises in a person-centred way is working in partnership with the client. Her role and approach are not predetermined but are negotiated with the client as part of the process of therapy.
This means that the therapist has to pay close attention to what the client is saying, without trying to fit him into a theoretical framework that might have more to do with her own needs than with the reality of his life Smith, In the person-centred approach, theories are tools that can be used or discarded, depending on how useful they are to the client, rather than being seen as frameworks that structure practice.
Crucially, this deliberation is done in partnership with the client: The technician, the technologist and the thinker are names given to three facets of the occupational therapy practitioner.
They indicate approaches to different types of problem encountered within the practice of occupational therapy but they do not denote a level of skill or expertise.
The expert practitioner may be highly skilled in using practical techniques, in applying theory, in thinking or in all three.
In the next section, the nature of expert practice is explored.Instead of beating themselves up for having to show weakness in front of their families, they praised their families as their best friends while also taking pride in their own ability to provide their family members with emotional support.
