"This would be a valuable addition to any occupational therapy
program. It is succinct and easy to read. Students will enjoy the
pictures and the summary boxes that reinforce important concepts.
Since reviewing this book, I have recommended that our occupational
therapy program look at adopting it for several occupational
therapy courses." -- Cristy Daniel, EdD, OT, Doody's Review
"The writing style of the author is succinct and to the point. This is especially beneficial for students, as there is no room for ambiguity in the interpretation of examples of professionalism (including dress code and use of social media/electronic devices) provided in the text. Facts in the book are heavily referenced and opinions are clearly identified and stated. This book provides a useful roadmap for students, educators, and practitioners to further professionalism in occupational therapy." -Charles Shadle, OTD, OTR/L, Occupational Therapy in Health Care "This text is a practical tool for use in training occupational therapy students. The 15 chapters and 345 pages are written in a dynamic style that will hold the reader's attention." -Alexandra Lecours, PhD, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy
