The model of human occupation applied to psychosocially functional and dysfunctional adolescents


, : The model of human occupation applied to psychosocially functional and dysfunctional adolescents. Occupational Therapy in Mental Health 5(1): 21-40

This study investigated differences between 2 groups of adolescents, those hospitalized with psychosocial problems and and a nonhospitalized group. The model of human occupation was used as framework for identifying the dependent variables of self-esteem, locus of control, feelings of efficacy, interests, values, roles and habits. Although expected differences in personal causation emerged, other findings were more equivocal. The paper presents a review of the literature on psychosocial dysfunction in adolescence, organized according to subsystems of the model. Following a description of the methodology used, results are presented along with a discussion of their meaning and limitations of the study.
