Workshop: Can the CO-OP Approach be beneficial for people with cerebral palsy or spina bifida?


Kello: 13.00 - 15.00


You are warmly welcome to free-of-charge workshop, where certified CO-OP instructors will discuss short- and long-term benefits of CO-OP as well as possibilities for implementation in the Nordic countries.

The Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) is a generic, performance-based, and person-centered approach that engages the individual at a metacognitive level to enable the individual to solve performance problems on their own as life unfolds.

CO-OP is a feasible approach for children & young adults with CP or SB. CO-OP provides the person with the opportunity to participate in the entire process from goal setting— to planning— to goal achievement. The person finds his/her own solutions to everyday-life problems, and thus develops meta-cognitive thinking and selfefficacy.

The workshop is held in English. There is time for discussion on how CO-OP can be a team-approach, and how it can be beneficial for individuals with other diagnoses in the habilitation setting.

Sign up here. The link will be sent a day before.

Time: 12-2 PM (Swedish time)

Presenters: Lena Bergqvist, PhD, OT, University of Gothenburg, Ann-Marie Öhrvall, PhD, OT Karolinska Institute, and Marie Peny-Dahlstrand, Associate Professor, OT, University of Gothenburg.
