The Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Research Cluster and the Institute of Health and Community are pleased to invite you to the next in their series of seminars covering a number of relevant topics by local guest speakers. 

December’s seminar will be given by Tore Bonsaksen, a Lecturer in Occupational Therapy at Osla and Akershus University College of Applied Science, Norway. 

The 4th International Institute on the Model of Human Occupation (MOHO) was held 23-24 October 2015 in Indianapolis, USA. The aim of the institute was “to advance theory and evidence-based practice using MOHO through showcasing the latest developments in MOHO research, education and clinical application”. In reaching for this aim, 77 abstracts from 15 countries were selected for presentation. 

The seminar will highlight and reflect on some of the issues that were raised during the institute, and that have been of particular interest to our speaker.

Tore’s clinical background is in mental health, he worked as an occupational therapist in hospital-based mental health settings in Norway. For the last five years he has worked as a Lecturer in occupational therapy at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences in Oslo.

Everybody is welcome to attend, just turn up on the day!

About the Occupation Science and Occupational Therapy Research Cluster
Occupational science is the study of humans as occupational beings. We are interested in what people chose to do in their daily lives, how and why, and the relationship between people’s occupations and their health and wellbeing. Occupational therapists are health professionals who promote health and well-being through enabling people to be engaged in their everyday occupations. The seminars cover topics from both disciplines and you are all welcome to join us!
