Description

Rest is an occupation that encompasses many aspects of the human experience. It is an occupation that looks different for everyone. The field of occupational therapy has always emphasized the importance and relevance of the occupation of rest. After a review of literature on the topic, there was little information about how rest and restful occupations are addressed in occupational therapy practice. This capstone project explored the occupation of rest and how it was understood and addressed in occupational therapy practice. This was a qualitative research design, where a survey was produced for occupational therapy practitioners (OTP). The survey questions were different depending on if the OTP said they addressed rest or not. The results of the survey lead to key findings, the formation of three themes, and the creation of a proposed assessment for rest.
