If you are a follower of our SPOT events, you may already know me, if not here it goes. My name is Bruna Bastos, I am an occupational therapist and also student of the MSc in Hand Therapy at the School of Health Sciences in Leiria, Portugal.
Today I’m writing this blog to you because I want to share with you my perspective on the use of technology and digitalization in OT.
this blog includes a personal experience report on depression
this is the blogger writing to you. Considering it’s mental health awareness month, I recently gave the question some thought on how one could describe mental health or mental illness. Who decides when your mental status is fine? Is there a “normal” mental state?
Adding to that, a friend of mine kindly agreed to talk about her personal experience with depression and the prejudices she faced. I would like to thank her for being open and honest about her experience. To clear up stigmas surrounding the subject it needs to be talked about.
It’s about the future of OT! The topic of academization is a very important topic in the OT world. In the following, we will discuss full academization related to the situation in Germany. Other countries are well involved too, so this may be of interest to many OT students.
Why is academization important for best practice? Who is involved? What Science says. Why now?
Hello fellow OT students! I am excited to present a new idea we tried out for the blog section: A certain topic is presented by any member of SPOT, to which the whole community can share their views. Ulrik, our general board member, wrote down some thoughts he had on the topic of internationalisation and why it is so important. On our instagram feed we shared a poll, asking for your opinion on internationalisation. I quoted some of your answers further down in the blog post. We hope this may inspire you to get active and exchange your thoughts with OT students worldwide, keep your minds open and embrace new possibilites through international exchange! 🙂
I am writing to you as the new blogger for SPOTeurope. My name is Kira and I am in my third year of studying OT in Germany. I have only recently joined SPOTeurope and am looking forward to creating the blog space together with you guys!
We hope that you are doing well and enjoying your summer vacation so far!
In this month’s blog, we would love to share with you a small but comprehensive update on our actions and events as well as inform you that we will be out of office from the (already passed) 29th of July till the 22nd of August! We will still be active on our social media and replying to emails, but expect a small delay since we are all taking some time off to cool down from such a tiring and demanding year.
It is nice writting to you, once again, and this month I have something more ‘personal’ that I want to share with you.
During the past month, I have been reflecting a lot on my previous placements for an assignment that is due 3 weeks from now and I realized that I have experienced some difficulties during these placements which I would love to share with you.
It is officially the first Saturday of March which means that you are reading our newest blog 😀
This blog post is very special to me since I will be narrating to you, in cooperation with a dear colleague of mine, Aspa Argyri, the first occupational module we took when we started our studies, in 2018!
Hello everyone! It is officially the first blog of 2020 and before starting I would like to wish you a happy, healthy, and productive year. Therefore, I wanted to share with you a very heartwarming Christmas-related intervention that I helped coordinate during my second clinical practice.
For this month’s blog I decided to talk about one of the most common phenomena we, OT’s, encounter during both our studies and clinical practices: occupational disruption. Even though most of you might be familiar with this term I shall briefly go through the literature so we can all be on the same page:
Greetings everyone! It’s Emmanouela once again. I am writing this blog on behalf of SPOTeurope to officially wish you happy (belated) summer vacation! We hope that you have been healthy and enjoying this summer as much as you can!
