DESCRIPTION

Occupational Performance Coaching (OPC) is an intervention which is person, family- and occupation-centred, enablement-focused and research informed. OPC, an evidence-based practice, was developed by Dr. Fiona Graham (University of Otago, NZ). This approach involves working alongside clients to achieve goals for themselves, their children and/or families. In OPC therapists utilise specific processes of Connection, Structure, and Sharing that facilitate client engagement and goal achievement. 

The OPC approach has been extremely beneficial through the current climate of teletherapy enabling us to coach families in their own settings and being able to journey alongside them in their daily lives. 

This is an interactive course that will enable participations to practice and develop their coaching skills.

OBJECTIVES

Participants will:

  1. Learn of the basis of occupational performance coaching (OPC) with reference to other interventions which support the use of OPC
  2. Apply the three domains of OPC (Connect, Structure, Share), session format and therapeutic techniques used during OPC
  3. Identify how to effectively utilise coaching within services delivery contexts. 

The workshop will also include practical sessions (i.e. videos/vignettes and role play) to assist participants in integrating their knowledge and skills.
