This major text is a landmark for the VdTMoCA, with 328-pages presenting the model in full for the first time. The contributors to the book are highly respected experts from South Africa, as well as two British authors, Dr Wendy Sherwood and Sarah Wilson. It provides much insight into the origins, development and theoretical basis of creative ability. In addition, there is detailed descriptions of the levels of creative ability illustrating the core constructs of the components of creative ability and their inter-connectedness. It provides detailed explanations of the assessment of creative ability and direct application to clinical practice. This is an essential resource for occupational therapists, support workers, students, educators and researchers, throughout the globe, presenting a culmination of knowledge and expertise developed from its first inception and its use in clinical practice during the last 40 years.
It is an honour for the VdTMoCA Foundation (UK) to be part of this historical moment in the development of the model and we thank the Vona and Marie du Toit Foundation of South Africa.
