Sometimes the goal of a psychosocial occupational therapy intervention is not obvious for someone observing the process, and this may lead to misunderstandings as to the targeted outcomes for various occupational therapy methods. Summarizing features found in psychosocial occupational therapy practice, in textbooks, and in occupational therapy models, this paper proposes a simple structure for characterizing psychosocial occupational therapy interventions and for describing some disparities between different programs. The structure builds on two concepts, explicit and implicit methods, which form the end-poles of a continuum. Similarities and differences between the two extremes are described, addressing the following characteristics: long-term goals, motivational source, short-term goals, activities used, strategy used, time required, theoretical framework, and position in the profession.
