Department of Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists who can support the reconstruction of daily life based on scientifi c analysis and who can impress and motivate client

Occupational therapists support people with mental and/or physical disorders. Their goal is to restore their clients’ independence. Occupational therapists need to give clients confi dence and motivation to challenge themselves. In other words, their empathetic “heart” is required to effectively support their clients. We ask students to fi nd answers to the question of “how people should live.” Our courses include a variety of activities and game playing as well as theories and methods. Our aging society requires experts who can adopt new ideas with ? exibility based on scientifi c analysis. Our aim is to foster such leading therapists in order to promote and protect people’s lives.
