The 75th anniversary celebration of NYU’s Department of Occupational Therapy continued in November with the second of two events during the Fall semester. Along with the Distinguished Alumni Panel in October, alumnus Richard Sabel, MA ’97, MPH, OTR, GCFP, and Bill Gallagher, PT, CMY, CYT, continued the celebration with a workshop titled, “Integrating Yoga, Tai Chi, and Feldenkrais with OT Practices.”
The workshop took place on Saturday, November 14, in NYU’s Kimmel Center and focused on how Eastern and Western traditions can be integrated into occupational therapy practice to promote occupational performance throughout the continuum of care. It was an extremely engaging and informative workshop for all who attended!
The NYU Department of Occupational Therapy is excited to announce our partnership with NYU Shanghai to offer students two new courses for Summer 2016. The two courses being offered in China are taught by NYU OT faculty and are open to NYU OT students with advisor approval. Graduate students from other NYU departments, as well as practicing professionals are also invited to enroll with permission from the course instructor.
Eligible students will be able to select from two classes for the Summer 2016 semester:
- Sensory Processing Challenges and Opportunities: A Focus on Autism: In this course, students will learn about the sensory processing differences for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
- Advanced Hand & Upper Quadrant Evaluation and Intervention: This course examines the anatomical, biomechanical, and would-healing theories that support current concept in hand and upper-limb rehabilitation.
Shanghai, one of China’s biggest and most vibrant cities, is home to NYU Shanghai’s new Pudong campus. It includes an extensive library and modern classroom and laboratory facilities. You can take a virtual tour of the new Pudong campus here.
