Nelson was determined to define occupation clearly so that progression could be made in the field of occupational therapy (Nelson, 1988: 633). In the following essay I will outline the model that Nelson designed to clearly illustrate occupation. I will then describe an occupation that I take part in and apply Nelson’s ideas to my occupation to prove that it is an occupation. Nelson describes occupation as “the relationship between two things: occupational form and occupational performance” (Nelson, 1988: 633). Occupational form is the external environment or situation in which the occupation is performed in.
Kipchoge puts all his time, energy, and strength into becoming a consummate athlete. His pertinacious work ethic and inordinate dedication to the sport manifests his sumptuous success. Just as Marita worked hard to excel in school, Kipchoge emulates the same principles to reach success. Gladwell’s novel Outliers presents theories of success that apply to real-life, successful people such as Eliud Kipchoge. Gladwell uses Bill Gates and Marita to represent success resulting from others and individual determination.
He was able to lead thousands of men on the battlefield and thousands of Catholics spiritually. Additionally, his passionateness is one that everyone can strive for. The way he showed passion for everything he did throughout his whole life is a reason for why his passionateness stands out as well. His leadership and passionateness are virtues that I admire about him. I believe I am a natural-born leader, like St. Ignatius and I think I can continue learning and trying to be a better leader everyday.
Although both two models are common in the practice of occupational therapy, they are different in many ways. In this essay, I will compare the differences between two models. To start with, there are differences between the assumptions of the two models. In MOHO, this model views human being as a dynamic system, and the interaction between the system, task, and environment results in occupational behaviour; recognises that occupation is affected by factors that are outside and inside the person; looks therapy as a process that people are helped to engage in doing things in order to sculpt their occupational abilities and identities. In PEOP
MOHO seeks to explain how occupation is interested, patterned, and performed. It offers a wide-ranging view of human occupation. Within MOHO, humans are theorized as being made up of three interconnected components such as volition, habituation, and performance capacity. Volition suggests to the inspiration for occupation, habituation refers to the process by which occupation is planned into routines, and performance capacity signifies the
As you certainly know, the best way to make the most of the Summer is to be physically fit. And what better workout program can you possibly adopt than CrossFit? Specifically developed to provide excellent levels of fitness to its practitioners, CrossFit is a physical training program practiced in thousands of affiliated clubs. Even firefighters, law enforcement agencies and military organizations, including the Canadian forces, SWAT and the mariners practice CrossFit workouts due to its proven effectiveness. Naturally, you can also practice.
The theoretical format Person-Environment-Occupation (PEO), focuses on the individual, the environment, and the occupation. With the PEO format, we see the physical, social and cultural elements of where occupational therapy takes place (Scaffa, 2010, p.35). The PEO ties in person-environment interaction, person-occupation interaction, and the person-environment-occupation interaction (Scaffa, 2010, p. 36). The PEO is similar to that of the OT framework because the OT framework as well describes environment as having physical and social components. It mentions the social aspect of the environment that includes relationships and expectations with other individuals.
Barkley (2009), define this as “notions of self-regulatory process that goes beyond fragments of self”, in person-oriented emotion regulation, the person’s functioning is coordinated by integrating as many subsystems and processes as possible for supporting a chosen course of action. Kuhl explains (as cited in Barkley, 2009) that regulating people’s actions in harmony with their inner needs, motives and autobiographical experience highlighted the support of “inner democracy”. Barkley (2009), identified to main ways in which emotion regulation may coordinate the functioning of the whole person, first is person-oriented emotion regulation may prevent people from becoming trapped in specific motivational-emotional states, second is by facilitating emotional changes, emotion regulation may promote coherence in personality functioning and personal growth. Person-oriented emotion regulation somehow seeks to bridge the division between mind and body, thus bodily activities integrate the emotion regulatory activities such as meditation and
An Analysis of a Cross Country Team Success comes from the accomplishment of an aim or purpose, and a cross country team demonstrates this through the obligation and contribution of each person involved, consisting of; coaches, training/recruiting staff, equipment, facilities, the school, and most well known, competitors, the runners. These runners deserve a great deal of acclaim and credit for the effort and obligation they contribute through their performance. Although running focuses on the individualized aspect of competition, a heavy emphasis of teamwork is granted. The everlasting endurance these runners have aquired come from the work of many ‘behind the scenes’ actions, coming through precise details and planning. No single person,
It endorses expression beyond traditional barrier, it is understood by all in spite of language or belief. Through sports people can recognize new role model, someone they can look up to or believe in. Since sports have a positive influence on every area of human life its importance must never be taken for granted and countries worldwide must invest in their athletes to ensure that they are always on top. Oloyede (2012) carried out a research to determine the role of sports in society and found that sport release emotions and acts as a protective value that relieves hostile behavior in people. It gives youngsters the opportunity to showcase their athletics talent to be recognize worldwide.
I credit my Westfield coaches, Mr. Lidskin, Mr. Wachtel, Mrs. Ogle and Shane Moore, for not only providing me with the necessary physical training, but also being the best mentors I could have. My admiration for past Westfield runners such as Maggie Bingham, Kristina Krasich, Breanne Ehrman, Kaitlyn Love, Whitney Bevins and Waverly Neer, many of whom have gone on to have successful college careers and even professional ones, have inspired me to be like them. In the future, I hope that young runners in Westfield will regard me the way I regard
