This course will describe the benefits of various modes of exercise and potential barriers and facilitators to exercise. Benefits discussed will include mood, cognitive function, and “The Self”. Periodization techniques will be discussed to transition exercise from a “chore” into becoming a purposeful activity (i.e., occupation).
This course is well-suited for occupational therapists as well as other professionals with a background in rehabilitation.
