Abstract

The Kawa Model: Culturally Relevant Occupational Therapy presents a new conceptual model of practice that heralds an important shift in the discourses of theory and culture in occupational therapy. The profession's first substantial theoretical work to emerge outside of the West impels occupational therapy beyond its familiar bases of individual autonomy and agency, toward collective-oriented, interdependent views of human occupation. Infused with Eastern philosophical perspectives and world views, the Kawa Model brings nature and ecology to the profession's evolving rational dialectic.
