The Framework, an official AOTA document, presents a summary of interrelated constructs that define and guide occupational therapy practice. The Framework was developed to articulate occupational therapy's contribution to promoting the health and participation of people, organizations, and populations through engagement in occupation. The revisions included in this second edition are intended to refine the document and include language and concepts relevant to current and emerging occupational therapy practice. Implicit within this summary are the profession's core beliefs in the positive relationship between occupation and health and its view of people as occupational beings. Numerous resource materials include a glossary, references and a bibliography, as well as a table of changes between the editions.
