Master of Science in Occupational Science - Identity & Transitions: We Are What We Do? OCCU 6518   Identity & Transitions: We Are What We Do?
CREDIT HOURS: 3
Who are we, and how do we know who we are? How and when does our sense of self develop and through what processes? How are identities formed through what we do in our daily lives? What happens to identities at times of transition, such as adolescence, retirement or unemployment, experiences of loss, experience of disability, or the onset of illness? This course explores the mechanisms and theories of identity development and transitions in relation to participation in activities of everyday life. The course focuses on how individual and social identities interact with life transitions, while attending to the influence of social categories, such as culture, race, gender, age, disability, socio-economic status, and sexual orientation.
