Product Description


"Friedland has produced a powerful resource for occupational therapy. Best of all, it was a pleasure to read. I really had no idea of the complex forces at work in the development of my profession. The many experiences I have had over the years now make more sense." Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy

“Restoring the Spirit connects the spirit and philosophy of the professions adopted by the early pioneers with a call to action by the author for their successors today to continue, in the words of Thomas Kidner, to ‘Organise, Agitate and Educate’. This new volume sits alongside the four major books on the history of the profession so far written in English, for the United Kingdom, for Scotland, for the United States and for Australia.” British Journal of Occupational Therapy

"...[Friedland] casts occupational therapy as a potential regenerator, capable of broadening the medical model itself to comprise concern for the complex physical, social, and spiritual requirements for individual well-being. She makes a compelling argument about the largely submerged inheritance of the profession and the potential to mobilize that tradition to transform paradigms of care." Chris Dooley, University of Winnipeg, Canadian Bulletin of Medical History
