The first book written specifically on clinical applications of sleep and sleep disorder theory for occupational therapists, this book bridges the research to practice gap. Contributors share their expertise, exploring topics such as the relationship between mental health and sleep; how sleep is affected by age, or by specific conditions such as dementia or autism; and how occupational therapists can use their skills and training to improve sleep quality in patients who are suffering from pain, or trauma.
This timely book is essential reading for occupational therapists and students of occupational therapy, covering all of the aspects of sleep and sleep disorders that they will find useful for practice.
I am delighted to see a book specifically about sleep and the role occupational therapists can play in assisting the person to manage the impact of sleep disorder. The range of conditions and perspectives discussed in the book gives depth and breadth to the wide-ranging aspects of sleep and sleep problems and the influence this can have on people's daily lives across the lifespan. I see the book as a useful resource for all occupational therapists from novice to expert.
