Syfte: Att utforska varför och hur coaching och ett coachande förhållningssätt används idag inom arbetsterapi. Metod: En kvalitativ studie med semistrukturerade intervjuer. Data analyserades med innehållsanalys. Resultat: Tre teman synliggjordes; coaching som ett kreativt verktyg som fokuserar på potentialen, coaching ikraftsätter klienten att genomföra förändringar i livet, coaching skulle kunna vara en metod att tydliggöra och lyfta fram professionen och även att få ännu bättre effekt. Konklusion: Coaching eller ett coachande förhållningssätt skulle kunna underlätta för arbetsterapeuter i strävan att bli mer klient- centrerade i sin arbetsvardag. Studien bidrar med kunskap om coaching och hur den används inom arbetsterapi för att arbeta mer klient centrerat. (Less)
