Abstract
To more clearly understand how the profession of occupational therapy has historically defined, viewed, and interpreted clinical practice specific to adolescent mental health, the author of this article conducted an in-depth review and analysis of the topic in occupational therapy literature, including Occupational Therapy Archives (1917 to 1924), Occupational Therapy & Rehabilitation (1925 to 1950), the American Journal of Occupational Therapy (1960 to 2009); and 11 editions of Willard and Spackman's Occupational Therapy textbooks (1947 to 2009). This article offers insight into how the profession of occupational therapy has historically conceptualized clinical practice settings, interdisciplinary collaboration, therapeutic approaches, and types of intervention specific to our role in adolescent mental health practice. The article also includes a timeline of key historical events that have helped shape occupational therapy practice in adolescent mental health.
