Buy Article:


This article describes two studies that evaluated the use of two tools of a client-centred approach for use in community occupational therapy, namely the contact letter and the Mayers' Lifestyle Questionnaire. The first study involved community occupational therapists, mainly working in social services. They used the contact letter and the Lifestyle Questionnaire with their clients who had problems caused mainly by physical disability. The second study used an adapted Delphi technique in order to involve a Disability Action Group in the evaluation process. Finally, the article brings the reader up to date with the present use of the Lifestyle Questionnaire and related research being undertaken with clients with mental health problems.
