This week I finished my first round of Level I occupational therapy fieldwork in pediatrics. In two weeks, I start my next round, this time, in a psychiatric inpatient setting.
Here’s a description.
The Psychiatric Inpatient Program provides intensive psychiatric care to voluntary adult patients with acute psychiatric disorders, such as major depression, bipolar illness or schizophrenia. Patients are immersed in intensive daily treatment, with the goal of returning them to the familiar surroundings of home as quickly as possible. Therapeutic activities focus on issues of self awareness, family matters, social skills and personal problem solving.
Quite a contrast from playing with kids on swings and tricycles. Looking forward to it!
