7. About Occupational Performance Coaching (OPC)

OPC is an evidence-based intervention for rehabilitation specialists to assist people with disabilities and their caregivers to realise their aspirations for themselves, their loved ones, and their families. OPC draws from core principles of occupational therapy that people learn, develop and grow from doing the things they value as fully as they wish and are able.

OPC was originally developed for occupational therapists to assist parents of children with developmental disabilities, but OPC is now used by multiple rehabilitation professions to support people of all ages, and with diverse health conditions, to achieve personally valued change in life domains.

Workshop fee: 50,000 JPY
