@clissa89 @RunawayBomber welcome 🙂 🙂 we’re talking about transitions – feel free to share your own experiences! #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:06:12 +0000)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Me too – too busy sorting out some resources on reflection and CPD @ShaanOT What inspired you most? #ot24vx #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:06:15 +0000)
@clissa89 @cgenter good luck! how old is the new addition now? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:06:26 +0000)
@RunawayBomber @kirstyes I’ll try my best! I need to learn more about the occupation terminology before I throw myself in! I only know a few things #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:06:42 +0000)
@kirsi_hyvarinen I was goimg to ask the same as @cgenter @shaanot #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:07:01 +0000)
@kirstyes @RunawayBomber Feel free to ask us to explain anything #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:07:12 +0000)
@silkejaeger #occhat hello. first time I try to join in. I will be busy with checking out how it works. exciting. :-)(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:07:20 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @RunawayBomber #Occhat a few is more than none… we can all learn from a few things.(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:07:30 +0000)
@clissa89 @silkejaeger welcome! great to have you here 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:07:45 +0000)
@kirstyes @cgenter You are going through a bit of a transition then. How are you both managing to maintain normal occupations or not?? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:08:12 +0000)
@fullyOccupied Hi – checking in, but having 2check out 2; just in from work, &house full of friends &supper,shame cos occ &transitions fascinating #Occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:08:15 +0000)
@kirstyes @silkejaeger Welcome on board. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:08:25 +0000)
@clissa89 @fullyOccupied sounds like a very busy day!! thanks for checking in – maybe you can share some of your thoughts with us later?? #Occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:08:50 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat ok transitions is this like when you undergo major life changes then, (move house, leave home, start new job etc?)(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:08:55 +0000)
@ShaanOT @kirstyes @clissa89 I’d read a lot about transitional objects but not really much about how our occs also keep us safe #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:09:05 +0000)
@kirstyes @clissa89 We’ll see if anyone else is up for the challenge then ;0) #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:09:44 +0000)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat good point, hadn’t thought of that. still bit up in the air, negotiating some new roles, but past experience helps too(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:10:00 +0000)
@cgenter @ShaanOT @kirstyes @clissa89 #occhat oh i see so its how occ keeps us safe/sane during times of transition?(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:10:35 +0000)
@clissa89 #occhat @cgenter like idea of transition as “”interruption in pattern of everyday life”” (Blair) -life events eg house/job/relationship change(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:10:36 +0000)
@fullyOccupied #Occhat will catch up on thread later. Dr Sheena Blair is fab on this subject(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:10:53 +0000)
@ShaanOT @kirstyes @clissa89 I’ll have a go but may b a delay 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:10:58 +0000)
@cgenter @clissa89 #occhat right, in that case new baby definitely fits that category!(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:11:34 +0000)
@kirsi_hyvarinen Hans Jonsson has done research abt occ in retairement situation. He speaks abt transitions in his research. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:11:51 +0000)
@clissa89 @cgenter yes can be… or alternatively can be how it is affected/disrupted by transitions? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:11:52 +0000)
@RunawayBomber I can see how this can directly relate to a lot of the situations that I’ve experienced working with patients and service users #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:12:08 +0000)
@clissa89 @cgenter YES id say new baby counts as transition! 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:12:15 +0000)
@kirstyes @cgenter That’s what I remember – how occupation mediates and helps us with transitions, e.g. people ‘carrying on’ thru bereavement #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:12:16 +0000)
@clissa89 @RunawayBomber can you share an example? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:12:29 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat so a transition could be coming to terms with a diagnosis then?(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:12:35 +0000)
@ShaanOT @cgenter @kirstyes @clissa89 and also how occ are interrupted by transitions 2 #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:12:37 +0000)
@ShaanOT RT @kirsi_hyvarinen : Hans Jonsson has done research abt occ in retairement situation. He speaks abt transitions in his research. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:13:07 +0000)
@Helen_otuk #Occhat I am currently going through a few… moving to part time work/increase in carer role/and taking on new role also…(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:13:16 +0000)
@Helen_otuk #Occhat I can see both sides… my occ’s have def been interupted as some of you will have noticed!(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:13:47 +0000)
@clissa89 @cgenter yes id say so. may change how you do things, how you think about yourself #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:13:58 +0000)
@fullyOccupied b gd 2 hear views re thoughts on protective role occs can have during transitional times, & symbolic occs that ease transitions #Occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:14:12 +0000)
@kirstyes @fullyOccupied You can catch up later I’m sure ;o) #Occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:14:22 +0000)
@RunawayBomber A number of admissions to a particular ward that I worked on were due to the challenging behaviour of people who were struggling… #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:14:24 +0000)
@clissa89 #occhat my interest is mainly in transition as change in environment (relocation) but now also as student about to qualify(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:14:46 +0000)
@kirsi_hyvarinen @Helen_otuk Have u felt “”lost”” w/ your occupations in a new situation? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:14:49 +0000)
@kirstyes @ShaanOT I can’t say anything about delays – thanks #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:14:54 +0000)
@cgenter @Helen_otuk #Occhat mine too, I haven’t been on here as much and have felt a bit out of the loop(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:15:23 +0000)
@Lisa_D_OT @ShaanOT reminds me of when I first moved to uni after working for a few years- occ’s helped me maintain my sense of identity #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:15:35 +0000)
@kirstyes @cgenter Yes coming to terms with a diagnosis could be – also what about going into hosp and taking on ‘sick’ role/relinqushing occs #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:15:55 +0000)
@RunawayBomber I may have overdone the use of the CB terminology there 😀 #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:16:02 +0000)
@silkejaeger #occhat feels like there is always some kind of transition one has to cope with. Especially in modern worklife that asks for flexibility(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:16:17 +0000)
@kirstyes @kirsi_hyvarinen Yes his work on retirement very interesting – it’s where his ideas about diff classifications of occs comes from to #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:16:32 +0000)
@clissa89 @RunawayBomber definitely, i’ve seen that too!! do you remember how the situation was managed? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:16:35 +0000)
@cgenter @clissa89 #occhat it reminds me of coping with biographical disruption that @jackietaylor19 mentioned a while back(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:17:02 +0000)
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk Crikey – just a few all at once. Is there a need to develop new skills as part of this? #Occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:17:12 +0000)
@clissa89 @silkejaeger agree, life is FULL of transitions. and i suspect we will always encounter clients in some form of transition #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:17:14 +0000)
@ShaanOT @Lisa_D_OT what occupations were important 4 u 2 continue? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:17:34 +0000)
@RunawayBomber @clissa89 Sadly, as the ward was an asst. and treatment unit, I think the management of the situation had probably failed already. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:18:08 +0000)
@clissa89 @RunawayBomber often see mental health deteriorate as well e.g. as result of stressor – relationship breakdown, job loss #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:18:13 +0000)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Transition from student to practitioner a huge one – spotted a BJOT article from 2002 about that today #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:18:24 +0000)
@kirsi_hyvarinen @clissa89 confused. I didn’t expect that this will take so much time and I thought I was prepared for this. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:19:04 +0000)
@clissa89 @kirstyes we have to discuss how we will manage transition from student to NQOT as part of a viva #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:19:14 +0000)
@Helen_otuk #occhat … seem to have problem with tweet deck and or comp… back in a bit(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:19:39 +0000)
@ShaanOT @silkejaeger I agree it’s at these times it feels really important 2 spend time doing familiar things I love doing #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:19:52 +0000)
@clissa89 @kirsi_hyvarinen personally, think preparing for transition (where possible) very important – may reduce *some* of negative effects #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:20:04 +0000)
@kirstyes @silkejaeger Very true – does it matter do you think if transitions or ‘planned’ or not? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:20:11 +0000)
@ShaanOT RT @cgenter : @clissa89 #occhat it reminds me of coping with biographical disruption that @jackietaylor19 mentioned a while back(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:20:14 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat any particular key texts/references on transitions then?(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:20:24 +0000)
@silkejaeger @clissa89 how can OTs concretely support people? Are there any standards or is it empathy and accompany that makes the difference? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:20:42 +0000)
@kirstyes @cgenter definitely links with identity ideas ‘facilitate and protect our sense of self during transitional events ‘ (Sheena Blair) #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:21:03 +0000)
@Lisa_D_OT @ShaanOT social occupations were really important as I’d moved to a new city & didn’t know many people. Charity work, netball 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:21:29 +0000)
@clissa89 @cgenter Blair (2000 in BJOT) is key, one of few articles. but some in JOS re immigration, a couple in MHOT #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:22:38 +0000)
@kirstyes @RunawayBomber That doesn’t surprise me – transitions can be hard to deal with and many of us lack the skills & resilience 2 manage #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:22:47 +0000)
@clissa89 @silkejaeger as @ShaanOT said occ can be protective during transition so facilitating/encourating meaningful occupation important #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:23:26 +0000)
@RunawayBomber @kirstyes Yeah, and certainly in the learning disabilities context that I work that is especially true. Whether it’s through… #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:24:01 +0000)
@clissa89 @Lisa_D_OT yes 🙂 for me social occupations also important when moving – meeting new people, immersing self in new environment #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:24:05 +0000)
@cgenter @clissa89 #occhat thank you, actually I know a interesting article from jour of Psych related to use of gardening as coping with emigrating(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:24:10 +0000)
@kirstyes @kirsi_hyvarinen What aspects in particular are difficult? How can you use ‘occupations’ to manage this? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:24:10 +0000)
@LucyPeo Fantastic programme on bbc4 last week about musician with Parkinson’s- music being her continuing narrative through transition #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:24:25 +0000)
@silkejaeger @shaanot agree. things that help to calm down like spending time with the family, gardening, sports. All ‘normal’ things. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:24:44 +0000)
@RunawayBomber @kirstyes …poor observational skills or inability to communicate, this ‘group’ suffers a lot during transitional periods #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:24:44 +0000)
@ShaanOT RT @cgenter : @clissa89 #occhat thank you, actually I know a interesting article from jour of Psych related to use of gardening as coping with emigrating(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:25:25 +0000)
@clissa89 @RunawayBomber when i was on Ax/Treatmnt Unit, worked on easing transition through engaging client in previously meaningful activity #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:25:41 +0000)
@clissa89 @cgenter oh? any chance i could get the reference from you? not come across that one! #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:25:58 +0000)
@silkejaeger What about rituals? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:26:31 +0000)
@cgenter @clissa89 #occhat your mention of immigration reminded me ( Wen Li et al (2010) journal of health psychology 15 p786(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:26:31 +0000)
@kirstyes @ShaanOT Familiar things and/or new things that I feel I want to do or feel will help – I’ve been crafting a lot but that’s new #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:26:33 +0000)

@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat i will have a look thank you(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:28:27 +0000)
@Lisa_D_OT @clissa89 agree, environment is important in transitions – can facilitate/hinder engagement in occupations #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:28:29 +0000)
@clissa89 @cgenter yes it does, i’ve been looking at articles re sewing, poetry… #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:28:44 +0000)
@kirstyes @silkejaeger I think perhaps by focussing on routine and valued activities – maintaining both as much as poss? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:28:48 +0000)
@Helen_otuk #Occhat ok back… just catching up…(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:29:05 +0000)

@kirstyes @Lisa_D_OT That’s interesting – a bit of activity analysis going on there ;o) #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:29:32 +0000)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @silkejaeger in my experience also important to acknowledge that person is experiencing transition & associated emotions #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:29:32 +0000)
@ShaanOT @clissa89 @lisa_d_ot yes 4 me 2 it is my social and leisure occupations mainly maybe self care routines a bit also #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:29:41 +0000)

@Lisa_D_OT @kirstyes &occupational roles – still don’t really see myself as a student! Important for me to maintain a working role while at uni #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:32:18 +0000)
@kirstyes @RunawayBomber In this case we would try to use occupations that would help develop such skills. Skills don’t always transfer though #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:32:44 +0000)
@kirsi_hyvarinen @kirstyes Yes, excactly. 😉 I’ve visitied my friends a lot past few weeks so maybe that’s my occ for helping transition #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:32:59 +0000)
@clissa89 #occhat Scrapbooking and photography are occupations that I engage in specifically to help me cope with transitions(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:33:28 +0000)

@RunawayBomber @clissa89 I would have been very interested to have seen how the OT role worked in the Ax/Tr. Unit context #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:34:17 +0000)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Does that involve lists ;o0 #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:34:40 +0000)

@silkejaeger @kirstyes routine and valued activ, agree. And the sense to perceive what one is needing at the moment, what would do best to regain #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:35:30 +0000)
@clissa89 @kirstyes my rituals include taking photos of significant places, writing ‘memory pages’ to significant people, etc – for closure #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:35:37 +0000)
@Helen_otuk #Occhat good thing I can spend hours hours reading, new role need to get to know lots of different legislation and policy etc!(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:35:50 +0000)

@silkejaeger @kirstyes lists! super tool from project management. I love lists and find them very useful to sort things out. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:37:27 +0000)

@Lisa_D_OT @kirstyes Mainly values, and maintaining connections to people I work with. The money helps too though! #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:38:29 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes #Occhat yes, hence less time for my ‘online’ me stuff, but I have been keeping on with enough of my other ‘me’ things(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:38:53 +0000)
@kirstyes @silkejaeger Do you see making lists as a meaningful occupation to you then? #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:39:05 +0000)
@kirsi_hyvarinen I’ve started to write regulary reflection diary at my work. When I was student I wrote it only in placements. #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:39:33 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat just thinking of how many ppl prepare for transitions i.e. retirement prep, marriage prep etc, wonder how these compare with 1/2(Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:39:48 +0000)
@RunawayBomber I rant about this a lot, but there’s so little OT input into services where it’s truly necessary. For example, I am on placement… #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:40:10 +0000)

@RunawayBomber …with a Comm. LD Team. There’s nurses, physios, psychologists, psychiatrists and speech and languages therapists. Why no OTs?! #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:42:14 +0000)

@RunawayBomber @rebelraising Really? I’m going to have a nose around, I think & see if they’ve had any OT students before. There should be one imho #occhat (Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:47:10 +0000)
