Fondly known as the Boekie, “Patient Volition and Action in Occupational Therapy” is a unique South African publication which has informed and inspired occupational therapists since the first edition in 1980 by the Vona & Marie du Toit Foundation.
This collection of original papers and presentations by Vona du Toit, which covers the time period from 1962 to 1974, has formed the groundwork for what is today known as the Vona du Toit Model of Creative Ability.
Firstly Vona’s dissertation “Initiative in Occupational Therapy” submitted towards the teaching diploma in occupational therapy in 1962. She examined the ideas and writings of philosophers such as Buber, Frankl, Piaget, Fromm, adding her own incisive thinking and insights to formulate and articulate her ideas on human initiative, creativity, relatedness, purposeful activity and the philosophy of her beloved profession.
Five subsequent papers by Vona are included which further expand on the theoretical constructs and the definition of terms and concepts underpinning Creative Ability with a focus on the Restoration of Activity Participation leading to Work Participation. An important contribution is the formulation and description in table form of 7 interdependent levels of volition and 9 corresponding levels of activity participation, and the phases within each level. Of tremendous clinical value, she added treatment aims and principles to be used by teachers and clinicians.The book has been rounded off by contributions from Dain van der Reyden and Pieta Compaan which reflected their personal experiences and the application of Creative Ability in their lives and realms of practice.
Included in the publication is a reference list of related material and a register of experts on Creative Ability.
