Utilizing food skills group in mental health occupational therapy: Occupation in recovery


Occupational therapists work to promote mental health recovery in their practices.  The implementation of a food skills or meal preparation group is an occupationally-based tool, which can be used across a variety of settings, ages and health statuses to promote recovery.  This webinar will outline the clinical utility of meal preparation groups, including as an intervention to support recovery, and as tool to facilitate health promotion.  Strategies to design, implement and facilitate a meal preparation group will be discussed.  Evidence to support the intervention of a group-based meal preparation group in a mental health context will be reviewed.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Understand the current evidence that supports food skills group as an intervention.
  2. Recognize the practical strategies for developing and running a food skills group.
  3. Support client-centered practice with an occupation-focused intervention plan utilizing a food skills group.
