Abstract:
The aim of the research was to examine the ways in which occupational therapists construct meaning in their professional lives and, in doing so, shed light on the wider dialogue of the meaning of occupation. A secondary aim was to provide a framework to assist occupational therapists to unravel, articulate and position themselves within the meaning of their work. Hermeneutic phenomenology was chosen as a research approach to enable particpants to examine their own actions and for the insider researcher to be visible via hermeneutic reflection.
