Christine Harness, an Occupational Therapist Registered/Licensed, who has served as an OT consultant, hearing officer, and regional coordinator for the California State Health Department—in addition to a number of more advanced positions—has completed her new book “Try My O.T. Ways”: a book about healing with heart and understanding the relationship between caring for the body and an overall healthy life.

“This is a collection of many enlightening experiences enjoyed throughout my occupational therapy career, with other recommendations toward developing a positive lifestyle,” Christine Harness said of her work.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Christine Harness OTR/L shows readers the opposite side of the treatment process most individuals never get to experience. An excerpt from her work shows the deeper considerations that OTR/Ls apply to their subjective approach to healing.

Christine writes, “When patients come to us for occupational therapy or physical therapy following a traumatic event such as a stroke, we must go through a detailed screening we refer to as an initial evaluation. Along with measuring their functional limitations, loss of strength, range of motion, cognitive awareness as well as their remaining abilities, we must identify at what stage of healing the patient is going through. If we get the referral to begin working with the patient in the first stage of healing, which is known as ‘disruption,’ we must do more than test and measure; we find the patient diagnosed with a serious illness; he has lost control; his family and his friends are uncertain and anxious, not knowing what to expect and searching for answers. Our goals must include providing emotional support and guidance to help him through this stage.”

To learn more about the inner-working of the healing process, readers can purchase “Try My O.T. Ways” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
