Here's what I found for a definition of the term narrative: Kielhofner G et al. (2002) defined narrative as both the meaning we assign to occupational life & the medium through which we enact it. What do you think of this definition? (Reference to follow shortly) #OTalk

@hspenceruk @RebeccaCrouch I know I did a @SPOTeurope talk on autism recently. It was an interesting experience for students to learn more about autism. #otalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
& what do you think of this? "Hearing a person’s story is only 1 part of the picture. Much depends on how we [OTs] theoretically frame & reflexively analyse the narrative. The self-sufficiency of narratives, unmediated by analysis, needs to be challenged (Finlay 2004)." #OTalk
Rachel Johnson OT Seashell Trust @RJOTSeashell
@RebeccaCrouch Personally I think the narrative is often more important that the quantitative data - you can make statistics say anything. A persons own narrative is individual and unique! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
RT @Cass_OT__: @SigningOTQueen @BillWongOT @RebeccaCrouch Absolutely agreed! #OTalk
Anna Braunizer (she/her) @ABraunizer
@RebeccaCrouch @OTalk_ And the experience can be their experience with their disability, injury, or illness - and it can also be their experience in therapy and with other health professionals #OTalk

Good point. Narratives don't just come from individuals. #OTalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@BillWongOT @hspenceruk @SPOTeurope I have only recently started working with people with autism in my #CAMHS roles. These narratives are so important (along side input from their parents) to help us understand how we can support them with their ADLs on the ward. #OTalk

@RebeccaCrouch Well, reading and reflecting on this makes we wonder why we as OT’s want to put it in a framework or give meaning to it. If we do this; does the narrative still belong to the person? #OTalk #criticalreflection

@OTalk_ Absolutely, we often use their narrative to make sense of decisions people make and therefore what our outcomes will be. E.g well actually, we can see that this behaviour has a pattern at these times in their life. #OTalk

deb_OT @dmay_ot
@OT_KateT @BillWongOT @RebeccaCrouch I think some of that is context specific - my caseload doesn't feel the need to tell a story often (and it's often totally imagined and imaginative)- but it makes it much easier to be a useful part of their story if I know they think paw patrol is the best thing ever! #otalk

@Cass_OT__ @SPOTeurope I think English is tough! American Sign Language is so much more graceful, that’s just my opinion. Also, the grammar of ASL is more similar to French than English... believe it or not. #OTalk

@RebeccaCrouch I think in general the thing to do in these situations is to amplify the voices of people who are marginalised or excluded - so in this case maybe creating opportunities for OTs who aren't the "typical" OT to go into schools and be role models 😊 #OTalk

@RebeccaCrouch @OTalk_ #otalk Going back to what I said about autobiographies. I would really recommend How Not To Be A Boy by Robert Webb. Funny but also very sad. A really informative open narrative with themes of toxic masculinity and the grief of losing a parent at a young age. https://t.co/fdUqeejmaT

Anna Braunizer (she/her) @ABraunizer
@colourful_ot @RebeccaCrouch I 100% agree - I want to do what I can (with others) so that everyone who has the skills and potential to develop the skills can see themselves as health professionals and be occupational therapists and feel welcome in the profession, with lots of possibilities #OTalk

@RebeccaCrouch #OTalk For me, I think what is most valuable is the deeper level of meaning we can experience and come to understand in the way that an individual’s unique narrative is communicated and expressed (whether that’s spoken, written, expressed in art etc.) aswell as the content!
Anna Braunizer (she/her) @ABraunizer

@RebeccaCrouch #OTalk Q3, reading can be meaningful for me as well as a meaningless pastime. It depends on what I’m reading 📖

Shannan Rugg @OtShannan
@RebeccaCrouch #OTalk Following on from my thoughts on Q1, I think narratives are important in practice, but the individual must have a way that they can safely and comfortably express this. It could be something they may have never considered nor found a way to do this. We can help with this.

@Cass_OT__ Great! Without them I wouldn't make time to read. They are a great bunch. We met at a music festival many moons ago & remain friends today. We all take turns choosing the books. #OTalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@erinjeandodds Me too. I mix it up between audio, books & ebooks. Generally based on cost & how I'm feeling (energy levels, how busy I am etc.) #OTalk
Amanda White @ajciliaOT
@RebeccaCrouch #OTalk Q4 so if this includes listening as well as actually reading I learn a lot from pod casts, peoples life experiences give me insight which sometimes resonates with #narratives I hear. Also the advise in @drchatterjeeuk books is valuable.
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@anyadei Absolutely! And each discipline they see will be interested in a different perspective & point view of that narrative. So important to take an MDT approach as well. #Otalk

@RebeccaCrouch Books introduce us to people - fictional or real - and open up their lives, occupations, motivation, which broadens our understanding of the diversity of the human experience. Film does the same. We had some great modules at uni that used books/films for this purpose #OTalk
Shannan Rugg @OtShannan
@RebeccaCrouch #OTalk The body keeps the score! Can be hard to read if you’re not personally in the right place, but the combination of client/therapist narratives are so powerful. Highly worth a read when considering the impact that this pandemic may have on people’s mental health! https://t.co/crfw2MBLtC

@margaretOT360 Couldn’t describe it better - I feel genuine occupational deprivation if I can’t read on a daily basis #OTalk
Alison Janes @kaleidoscopier
@SigningOTQueen @margaretOT360 Late to the #OTalk party (as ever) - depends on the person/situation obviously, but could you could explain it as the story of why/how you do [occupation], or the story of why you do [occupation] that way?
