Introductory Occupational Performance Coaching

Monday October 18

Live Online: 4th, 7th, 18th, 23rd October, Mountain Standard Time

Facilitator: Dr Dorothy Kessler

Enrol at: www.saot.ca

Description: Occupational Performance Coaching (OPC) is an intervention which is relationship and strength-based, occupation-centred, and research informed. OPC involves working alongside clients to achieve their goals for themselves, their children and/or their families.

Post-pandemic, these intervention strategies may be of heightened relevance, as clients seek to re-engage and return to occupations they once enjoyed. Empowering our clients with the motivation they need is particularly important for those who may be feeling they have lost a sense of personal power over these last many months.

In the OPC introductory workshop, participants will develop an understanding of the basis of OPC. They will be introduced to the three domains of OPC (Connection, Structure and Sharing), OPC session format, and therapeutic coaching techniques used during OPC. At the end of the workshop, participants will have an understanding and basic skills to begin to utilise OPC within their services.

The workshop will also include practical sessions (e.g. case studies, videos/vignettes) and discussion of telehealth delivery to assist participants to integrate their knowledge and skills in a virtual setting.
