Occupation on the Edge: Occupational Science in Dialogue With Anthropology and Occupational Therapy, Panel 2 - Paper 2

Abstract

Project Shake It Up, a federally funded rehabilitation research project, explores notions of independent living and capacity building among adults with spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis and related disabilities. Anthropology, disability studies and occupational therapy use different discourses to conceptualize autonomy and relations of power for disabled individuals. Ethnographic interviews and other qualitative data from Project Shake It Up will be used to consider anthropological conceptualizations of power and agency, disability studies notions of independent living and empowerment and occupational therapy concepts of functional ability, life satisfaction, and capacity building
