About the Author
Dr Gail Boniface is Senior Lecturer & Programme Manager at Cardiff University. She has been teaching theory since 1987. She developed student handouts and teaching material into short courses on models of occupational therapy. These courses included definitions of terms related to theory and were delivered across Wales and England. They were then turned into a module on the MSc in Cardiff University for qualified practitioners. She also delivered similar key note lectures and courses in Germany, Sweden, Croatia and Poland. In more recent years she has worked with Gloucestershire Primary Care Trust to instil theory and the use of a model in the occupational therapy service there.

Over a 19 year career in occupational therapy practice in mental health she has used the Activities Therapy Model, Model of Adaptation through Occupation and The Model of Human Occupation in a variety of community and hospital settings.
