Hello! My name is Sivan Regev, and I teach the subject of mental health in OT for BA students in a college of ultra-orthodoxy in Israel. This year at the WFOT congress, I met some new friends who also teach MH courses, and I wondered how other places teach the subject.
It would be great if you can share:
One (or more) articles or videos that you are fond about in your course.
Your main goal in this course.
This way we can all get inspired and keep in touch to enrich our OT perspectives in mental health!
- A great article about cognitive strategies. I think it is a bit intensive to my students but it is a great take home material.
Toglia, J. P., Rodger, S. A., & Polatajko, H. J. (2012). Anatomy of cognitive strategies: A therapist's primer for enabling occupational performance. Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, 79(4), 225-236. https://doi.org/10.2182/cjot.2012.79.4.4
- A picture of my best slideshow from my PhD. It has my systematic-review with the chart that show the studies in OT that mesure executive function and IADL.
My main goal is to inspire them to investigate their own way of connecting to others and how to ask questions in respectful way.
Waiting forward to hear your thoughts!
Dr. Sivan Regev
