A semester-long assignment was developed to emphasize occupational therapy students' real-life, first-person experience in establishing, modifying, and sustaining occupations. The overall goal of the assignment was to help students integrate core content on occupation, habits, and client-centered intervention within the context of ongoing, lived, personal experience. By pursuing their own personal projects, occupational therapy students developed, modified, or ceased occupations in their real-life context. This opportunity for students to experience as client was successful at illuminating in a very real way, the challenges, responsibilities and obligations that they will encounter as they learn to think like a therapist...

A graduate level occupational therapy course in the experience of chronic illness is described for its unique method in helping students to broaden clinical reasoning skills. When students are faced with having to participate in a difficult situation with patients, they have the opportunity to discuss their own reactions, to understand better their own stressful experiences, and to more easily formulate questions for those who are chronically ill. Learning is facilitated through reading autopathographies; viewing videos of people dealing with illness, both sudden and gradual; participating in small group discussions, and writing reflective journals about the challenging community experience that is required of the course...
