2016 Anne Cronin Mosey Lectureship

The Anne Cronin Mosey Lectureship addresses controversial issues facing the occupational therapy profession. The lectureship began in 2003 to honor Dr. Mosey upon retirement for her achievements and contributions to the NYU Department of Occupational Therapy and to the profession. The Department is proud to present this event for the occupational therapy community. Find out more about the Mosey Lectureship here.


Keynote Lecture

Occupational Therapy Practice: Reality and Fantasy
Jim Hinojosa, PhD ‘88, OT/L, BCP, FAOTA
Many occupational therapy practitioners, scholars, and the American Occupational Therapy Association propose that occupation is the core and focus of occupational therapy. They promote that a single concept, occupation, should be at the focus of all occupational therapy practice. This presentation will address the question of whether a therapist can accept that occupation is the core of occupational therapy and still provide important, relevant occupational therapy interventions that are not categorized as occupation-based or focused. Are these justifiable interventions? And, finally, should the profession reconsider the monistic viewpoint it has so widely adopted.
