Occupational Therapy and Life Course Development is an invaluable work book for professional practice. It provides a tool to help both students and qualified professionals develop and enhance a framework for their practice that supports all individuals and settings in a holistic and inclusive way. Much of the book is organised as a work book based around a single case study. It includes theory related to life span development and managing change, and also exercises for readers to complete in order to apply the theory to practice. Chapters span such key topics as the client in context; life events; transition and loss; the management of stress; and planful decision making. The book emphasises how issues of life course development are as relevant to health and social care professionals as they are to their clients. A number of exercises invite readers to reflect on their own life course, and there chapters both on becoming and belonging as an occupational therapist, and on developing professional practice.

How do past relationships shape who we are today? Attachment theory offers a powerful model for explaining how our earliest relationships affect not only our development as children, but also our feelings and behaviour as adults. This succinct and highly readable book offers the perfect introduction to a fascinating and fast-growing field. It explains the key concepts in attachment theory and describes how the main attachment types play out both in childhood and later life. It identifies some of the intriguing questions being explored by research, such as: What part do individuals' attachment histories play in adult relationships? What scope is there for attachment styles established in infancy to change later in life? Students and professionals alike from across the fields of psychology, counselling, health and social work will find this an illuminating and thought-provoking guide to the rich complexity of human behaviour.

This book provides a practical, multidisciplinary approach to support a broad range of health professionals, social workers, public health workers and others tasked with providing health and care to young adults. The continuum of life begins with the health and wellness of parents prior to conception, followed by embryonic and fetal development, and continues throughout life. Each person’s life stages prepare them for the next and determine their health outcome and wellbeing over time. The text highlights the importance of promoting health throughout the lifespan, the influence of intergenerational health, and the concept of the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease in epigenetic processes and embryology. Authors underscore the importance of advancing health equity and lift up some of the ethical considerations in this work. The authors explore specific interventions in four major categories: Lifestyle, Infections, Nutrition, and Contraception / Pregnancy Planning (LINC). Preconception care is defined by the World Health Organization as the provision of biomedical, behavioural and social health interventions to women and couples before conception. Preconception care includes evidence-based interventions to improve health status, to reduce behaviours, individual and environmental factors that contribute to poor health outcomes. This book offers readers evidence-based guidance regarding fertility awareness and sperm health, genetic counselling and lifestyle assessments, as well as mental wellbeing, alcohol, tobacco and pharmacotherapy, and specialist care for those with chronic conditions, including a review of medications. It also covers relevant infections, including HIV and the Zika virus, as well as different types of environmental and occupational exposure. The book employs a framework focusing on health promotion, the social determinants of health, and the science behind preconception care. Strategies for improving preconception and interconception health, including examples from around the globe, are described in detail.
