Empathise

As occupational therapists, you will learn through your therapeutic relationships to listen to, to understand and to support the rights of the person you are working with, to be treated with dignity and respect in self-determining their occupational needs including accepting their right to take risks.

We are concerned that when people are not being listened to, we can then advocate on their behalf, and to have the courage to challenge a range of other people regarding their poor practice and decisions if they arise.
