OCTY1102 Introduction to Professional Skills in Occupational

What are Threshold Concepts?
Threshold concepts are those considered by the occupational therapy profession to be
central to the mastery of occupational therapy. Five threshold concepts have been
identified as pivotal to the practice of occupational therapy and these are integrated
within this course in the

Course Aims
- This course consists of two modules.
- The aim of Module 1 if so students to understand the ways in which intrapersonal and
interpersonal communication and relationships influence occupational performance.
Communication and occupational theories and practices will be integrated and students
will have opportunities to practice their communication skills in small groups and 1:1
situations. Adult teaching and learning strategies will be introduced. Communication
concepts around therapeutic (intentional) use of self and professional collaboration will
be highlighted.

- The aim of Module 2 is to introduce students to the process of occupational and activity
analysis, for students to understand where occupational/activity analysis sits in the
occupational therapy practice process (e.g. considering the CPPF) and to support
student capacity to analyse occupations and activities as a key skill for occupational
therapy practice.
