Work readiness, which primarily consists of “soft skills” such as communication and social skills, is an area that is especially consistent with the skill set of occupational therapy. The challenges for occupational therapists are to clearly define the specific and unique role for occupational therapy and to develop work readiness programs that are marketable and sustainable, as well as meaningful to multiple populations.
After reviewing the therapeutic value of work and the philosophical /theoretical underpinnings of the role of occupational therapy, group discussions and activities will focus on developing flexible work readiness program curricula and potential marketing and outreach strategies.
Dr. Anne MacRae is a Professor Emerita of San José State University and remains active in occupational therapy as a consultant, private practitioner and author. Among her many consultation and practice responsibilities was the development and implementation of work readiness programs for vulnerable and underserved populations, including people with mental illness/substance abuse, parolees, survivors of domestic violence, and transitioning youth.
