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

Occupational therapy is a profession of love and magic. It can not only provide a better life for our clients but also for ourselves. I really like how occupational therapy has made me more of an empathetic and creative person.
作业治疗是一门充满爱和魔力的学科。它不仅可以为我们的服务对象提供更好的生活,也可以为促进我们自己拥有更好的生活。而且,作业治疗丰富我成为了一个更有同情心和创造力的人。

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 still remember the day when a young boy with a diagnosis of Down’s Syndrome came to Momentum Pediatric Therapy Network, where I am pursuing my clinical practice residency focus, to meet his new occupational therapist. It was his birthday, but he was so frustrated and disinterested in anything we tried to do with him. We observed him lying on the floor on his stomach and rubbing himself on the floor repeatedly. So, we tried to give him some proprioceptive input and expose him to a rich sensory experience. The highlight of my residency experience was when the boy engaged in the activities gradually and had fun with us.
我刚到Momentum Pediatric Therapy Network实习不久,在某一天参与了一个被诊断为唐氏小男孩的作业治疗。夏季更换的作业治疗师对于他来说是陌生的,因此他非常沮丧,对任何事情都不感兴趣。我们观察到他趴在地板上,反复地摩擦着自己,猜想这可能是一种对感官体验的寻求动作。因此,我们试图给他一些本体感觉的输入,让他接触丰富的感官体验。渐渐地,这个男孩逐渐参与到活动中并与我们一起玩耍。我想这就是我实习经历的高光时刻。

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

I plan to apply my education and practice in every setting in China, especially in mental health settings. After I was offered a job position at the Peking University 6th Hospital, I always thought about how to promote the health and equity of all people with mental health disorders. Recently, I discovered the possibility of creating a virtual space, similar to that of a hospital environment, for people with mental health disorders to perform their roles and prepare themselves to return to their occupations.
我计划将我的教育和实践应用于中国文化背景和社会环境下的作业治疗领域中去,特别是精神健康领域。在我获得北京大学第六医院的工作职位后,我一直在思考作业治疗怎样帮助促进所有精神健康障碍患者的健康和公平。最近,我发现了或许可以在医院中创建一个虚拟的“小社会”,让精神健康障碍患者在其中恰当地发挥自己的作用,为回归职业做准备。

你最喜欢的作业活动是什么?

Baking and playing board games with my friends are some of my favorite occupations.
我最喜欢烘焙以及和朋友一起玩棋盘游戏。
