The VdTMoCAF (UK) is a UK based not-for-profit community interest company which serves the community of occupational therapy practitioners and educators with an interest in the Vona du Toit Model of Creative Ability (VdTMoCA).
The VDTMoCA was developed by South African occupational therapist Vona du Toit - see original papers and publications in 'Patient Volition and Action in Occupational Therapy' book published by the Vona & Marie du Toit Foundation, distributed in the UK by the VdT MoCAF (UK). Reference material on the model is available in:

A UK-based book on the application of the model in mental health practice in the UK is in development by the VdTMoCA Foundation (UK), and a full text on the model is in development, led by the Vona & Marie du Toit Foundation in South Africa. Regular clinical up-dates on the model in practice plus interviews with experts and much more are published in 'Participation', the essential publication for keeping up-to-date.
