    10. 10. Occupation is perceived as “doing” by the individual, is goal-directed, carries meaning for the individual, and is repeatable. (McLaughlin-Gray, 1997) Occupation is groups of activities and tasks of everyday life, named, organized, and given value and meaning by individuals and a culture; occupation is everything people do to occupy themselves, including looking after themselves (self-care), enjoying life (leisure), and contributing to the social and economic fabric of their communities (productivity) (Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists, 1997) Occupations are the daily living tasks that are part of an individual’s lifestyle (Golledge, 1998). Occupation is engagement in activities, tasks, and roles for the purpose of productive pursuit, maintaining one’s self in the environment, and for purposes of relaxation, entertainment, creativity, and celebration (Christiansen, Baum, & Bass- Haugen, 2005) Occupation is the doing of work, play, or activities of daily living within a temporal, physical, and sociocultural context that characterizes much of human life (Kielhofner, 2008) Occupation provides the mechanism for social interaction and societal development and growth, forming the foundation of community, local, and national identity because individuals not only engage in separate pursuits, they are able to plan and execute group activity to the extent of national government or to achieve international goals for individual, mutual, and community purposes (Wilcock, 2006)
