Suitable for OTs and OTAs with training in the VdTMoCA.

This one day case and practical-based workshop provides occupational therapists and OTAs with valuable knowledge of how creative ability is affected by changes in physical and mental functioning due to a broad range of conditions e.g. traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, mental illness and disorders, amputation, PTSD, hemiplegia.  Case material of real clients representative of a wide variety of conditions will be used to elucidate clinical reasoning and illustrate various concepts. 

In the afternoon, delegates have the choice of whether to continue to explore these in relation to assessment, reporting and employability or focus on the impact of learning disabilities on creative ability (including employability).  Thus, the learning outcomes indicate this optional choice.
