The Occupational Narrative Model & L.E.G.A.C.Y.™ Appreciative Life Review: An Emerging Model and Process to Support Occupation-Based Practice

This seminar will present an overview of the emerging Occupational Narrative Model and its companion, the L.E.G.A.C.Y.™ Appreciative Life Review - a framework and process to create meaningful occupational narratives with clients. Meaningful occupational narratives drive the development of purpose and support occupational participation, healthy patterns-of-living, and life satisfaction by facilitating being, doing, becoming, and belonging. They also encourage adaptive responses through the development of an "appreciative mindset", an effective approach to identify and amplify a client’s values, strengths, best experiences, and the hidden silver linings in challenging experiences.

Although individuals of all ages review their life, late adulthood traditionally sets the contextual and temporal stage for the life review. The Occupational Narrative Model and L.E.G.A.C.Y.™ Appreciative Life Review shifts the context of the life review to younger ages throughout the lifespan. This is especially relevant for occupational therapy practice because life-changing or traumatic experiences that impact health and well-being tend to prompt a life review. When conducted within the context of a helping relationship, the life review may be therapeutic and facilitate adaptive responses. Occupational therapists are uniquely qualified to provide not only the therapeutic relationship to facilitate the appreciative life review with clients but are also positioned to address the disruptions to patterns-of-living and occupational participation that impact life satisfaction through the process.
