What do you like about occupational therapy?
你喜欢作业治疗的什么?

I really like that occupational therapy helps clients engage in their meaningful occupations. Occupational therapists always try to start from the clients’ perspective — from trying to see if there are any physical, mental, social or environmental factors within their daily life that influence their occupational performance to finding ways to help them address these factors. I also like the idea of supporting clients to achieve their own occupational balance. This shows that we really do care about the human-centered aspect.
我非常喜欢作业治疗帮助客户从事有意义的作业这一点。作业治疗师总是试图从客户(患者)的角度出发——试图观察他们日常生活中是否有任何影响其作业表现的身体、心理、社会或环境因素,并找到帮助他们解决这些因素的方法。我也喜欢支持客户(患者)实现自己作业平衡的想法。这说明我们真的很注重以人为本。

What are some memorable moments from your residency experience?
在你的实习经历中有哪些难忘的时刻?

I really enjoy the moments when clients share their life story with me. This can really help me understand the diversity of client populations, and further think about their experiences from their perspectives. It makes me feel that we’re connected with each other, especially when they feel better with my help.
我真的很享受客户(患者)和我分享他们的人生故事。这可以帮助我了解客户(患者)群体的多样性,并进一步从他们的角度出发去思考他们的经历。这让我觉得我们彼此相连,尤其是当他们在我的帮助下感觉变好的时候。

How do you plan to advance OT in China?
你计划如何推进OT在中国的发展?

When I return to China, I hope I can be on the stage of national meetings to share presentations, in which way I can share my experiences as an OT, what I have learned from our profession, and most importantly, what our values are for our clients. As an occupational therapist, another way which can help to advocate for our profession is to use the knowledge and skills of occupational therapy to help clients in their daily therapy sessions.
当我回到中国的时候,我希望我能有机会在全国会议上进行分享。通过这种方式,我可以分享我作为一名OT的经验,我从我们的职业中学到了什么,最重要的是,我们对客户的价值是什么。作为一名作业治疗师,另一种有助于我们职业宣传的方式是运用作业治疗的知识和技能在日常治疗中帮助客户(患者)。

What are your favorite occupation(s)?
你最喜欢的作业活动是什么?

My favorite occupation is traveling. I like to spend time outside and be one with nature. It always makes me feel excited and inspired when I have the chance to travel with my friends, family, or fellows from our profession. It’s always good to share different experiences with them.
我最喜欢的作业活动是旅行。我喜欢花时间在户外,与大自然融为一体。当我有机会和我的朋友、家人或同行一起旅行时,我总是感到兴奋、并受到鼓舞。和他们分享不同的经历总是好的。
