Practicing across cultures
Deadline for theme manuscripts: 1 December 2018
Culture is fundamental to people’s lives. Cultural diversity is a driving force of development, not only with respect to economic growth, but also as a means of leading a more fulfilling intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual life (United Nations, 2017). Bridging the gap between cultures is urgent and necessary for peace, stability and development. As noted throughout the World Congress 2018, culture forms the essence of our practice. Being connected through diversity provides a foundation for inclusive occupational therapy.
The WFOT Bulletin offers the opportunity for you to share your research and practice experience on aspects relevant to cross cultural occupational therapy as well as an understanding of working within cultures.
The Bulletin accepts general articles at any time.
Case studies 1500 word: may follow the following format: abstract, 5 keywords, introduction with a description of the situation and context including the socioeconomic, political climate of practice, reason for new practice, background (the scenario), role of OT, implications and impact, conclusion with application perhaps to other places/countries
