Here’s the GrabChat URL: http://grabchat.com/cache/iayx8i – not sure what happened to the table at 19:40. I’ve tried using previous GC version and editing the code several times but same effect. If anyone knows how to fix it, please go ahead! (CS)

@pd2ot @Claire_OT Hi Claire! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:07:51 +0100)
@BillWongOT @pd2ot one thing I am really mindful about is volume control… which I can tend to say things on the loud side. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:11 +0100)
@pd2ot @Trio33 Can you elaborate? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:22 +0100)
@BPDFFS #occhat Mindfulness is key for me in managing my BPD, it’s the first thing I learnt to do. It teaches me about me.(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy well… it’s 30 C here. So, it’s pretty hot, at least not as humid as previous weeks. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:40 +0100)

@gilliancrossley Sorry #occhat … I forgot! not very mindful of me : /(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:10:19 +0100)
@pd2ot @BPDFFS I like the sound of this. Do you use DBT mindfulness or another ‘type’ #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:10:20 +0100)

@pd2ot @Claire_OT I found it took a long period of determined practice for it to become in any way natural, but now verges on automatic #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:12:19 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD Mindfulness has helped me avoid a number of emotional crises. Being aware of my feelings and slowing down before acting help a lot. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:12:22 +0100)
@kirstyes I’ve been trying to mindfully look after my sunflower from COT but blasted snails keep eating it. Not convinced will get any bigger #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:12:31 +0100)

@HealingFromBPD @pd2ot @Claire_OT would love to get to point where being mindful is more “automatic.” That’s great. Your nervous sys must be healing #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:14:05 +0100)
@BPDFFS #occhat my lack of sense of self one of the criteria for #BPD I have learnt using mindfulness to name and describe my emotions. Yes DBT .(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:14:12 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes wow that’s beautiful!! can’t believe it was only a little seed in a cup in June! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:14:21 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes but beer or salt around it… to save from the snails. they will have to be mindful if they want to survive! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:14:26 +0100)

@pd2ot @kirstyes That sounds wonderful! Good to see you here Kirsty #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:18 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @BPDFFS That is so awesome, Sue. Can definitely relate. #identity #BPD #mindfulness #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:26 +0100)
@clissa89 @BPDFFS naming and describing emotions – sounds so simple but actually can be very powerful!! #occhat #BPD (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @HealingFromBPD @pd2ot @Claire_OT well… but according to my skills theory instructor, then that will become mindlessness. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:42 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot @claire_ot Can you give an example of what mindfulness in occupation looks/feels like for you? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:44 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @BillWongOT @clissa89 A huge tweetup of all of us who connect on here would be amazing. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @HealingFromBPD @pd2ot @Claire_OT just to note, my skills theory instructor in OT school is Linda Fazio, well known in OT. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:17 +0100)
@kirstyes @HealingFromBPD I think you’ve hit the nail on the head about mindfulness. It’s about slowing down and recognition. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOReilly i think that’s the hard/important part – practicing. i’m sure there are people here who can share suggestions #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:38 +0100)
@Trio33 @pd2ot in my writing groups I use a balance of mindful writing exercises. eg here in this room I can smell, see, hear, etc. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:49 +0100)
@Claire_OT @pd2ot I can be mindfull in some areas of life, perhaps it’s the act of mindfull meditation that I can’t seem to implement #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:56 +0100)
@clissa89 @HealingFromBPD @BillWongOT yes! huge tweetup would be immense #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:17:03 +0100)
@Trio33 @pd2ot yes it did help but it must have given me a weird glazed look because the hygeinist kept asking me if I was ok. Lol. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:17:04 +0100)

@kirstyes @clissa89 That arrived safely in said cup after being transported in a suitcase from Glasgow. Miracle. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:17:50 +0100)
@BPDFFS @clissa89 it is very powerful when you have spent years not feeling anything, that’s how much I think mindfulness helps #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:17:51 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @HealingfromBPD @BPDFFS my emotions were running away from me today until i slowed down and took stock, noticed/named! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:08 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley ooh thanks for the tip, will do after the chat. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:20 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I did not see how I was mindful in my work, until I read your blog @pd2ot I thought I was just rubbish at reflection in action 1/2 #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:31 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes One of the DBT skills is to fully ‘participate’ in the moment, so when washing dishes you are only washing dishes [1/2] #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @HealingFromBPD I am planning to go to wherever the #COT conference is in 2014. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:48 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot Thanks. It really was blissful. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:03 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes [2/2] not worrying about the next job to be done or other matters. Total participation/engagement #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BPDFFS @clissa89 I agree. I think mindfulness is important when you are trying to learn new skills- in life and in OT practice. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @kirstyes not thinking about next job – definitely easier said than done, but makes huge difference #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:44 +0100)
@Helen_otuk 2/2 but I see now that because I immerse myself in the ‘moment’ or in my client interactions that I am not reflecting in action #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:51 +0100)
@kirstyes @Trio33 @pd2ot I do struggle sometimes with my daily #smallstone but writing it makes me reflect on the day. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:17 +0100)
@BPDFFS @pd2ot @kirstyes I think it helps to stop the continual ruminating that happens with #BPD being one mindful #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:21 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk @pd2ot that question in your blog PD2 about reflection and mindfulness has been with me all week! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:34 +0100)

@gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk @pd2ot I am very reflective but not sure I am very mindful… I think I need to practice more #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:38 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @trio33 @pd2ot in a small way, doing the #366challenge has ‘forced’ me to pause at least once a day, briefly #smallstone #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:19 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @kirstyes : @HealingFromBPD I think you’ve hit the nail on the head about mindfulness. It’s about slowing down and recognition. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:26 +0100)
@kirstyes Do many people use writing in their mindfulness practice, e.g. Journal/diary/blogs etc #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:30 +0100)
@CharOReilly #occhat so would you say being mindful is the same as mindfulness?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:34 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @Nnikki_Duffy : I agree about the fine line between mindful and mindless the point is awareness.(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:40 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @BPDFFS : @clissa89 it is very powerful when you have spent years not feeling anything, that’s how much I think mindfulness helps #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:47 +0100)
@BPDFFS @BillWongOT its like learning to drive a car, you are very mindful to begin with, now its automatic, try driving mindfully now #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:57 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @pd2ot : @kirstyes [2/2] not worrying about the next job to be done or other matters. Total participation/engagement #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:06 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BPDFFS @pd2ot @kirstyes I think it’s fair to generalize it to different conditions and diagnoses, too. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:16 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 Yes! Have to say that I have no further answers on that … #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:18 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @BPDFFS : @pd2ot @kirstyes I think it helps to stop the continual ruminating that happens with #BPD being one mindful #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:23 +0100)
@Trio33 @kirstyes @pd2ot writing is good because you write thoughts down in a linear way. It’s good for both mindfulness and reflection #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:26 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @kirstyes : Do many people use writing in their mindfulness practice, e.g. Journal/diary/blogs etc #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOReilly yes i think so – mindful in sense of paying attention on purpose to internal/external experience #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:33 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @kirstyes I definitely use my blog to reflect mindfully on my experiences. I think that’s why so many people tend to connect with it #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:54 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot I did that last night! By hand too, not just dish washing ;0) It was ok doing it as a one off.Used to be painful chore though #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:54 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Yes I loved the bit about reflection in action v mindfullness! I had not thought of it as mindfulness more attentiveness? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:59 +0100)
@Claire_OT I think an important part of working mindfully is the idea of “responding” rather than “reacting” which is embedded in mindfulness #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:00 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @clissa89 : @CharOReilly yes i think so – mindful in sense of paying attention on purpose to internal/external experience #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BPDFFS I actually do when I am on the freeways. Having been in 4 accidents (1 major), I become mindful of my driving a lot more. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:22 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes i do, although i wonder if it leads to over analysis sometimes : / #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:36 +0100)
@Helen_otuk But I see it more as mindfullness now as not just attentive to client, but the environment, family, roles etc etc #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:40 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD Mindfulness, for me, is taking an honest look at “What is” accepting it, and acting wisely in response, oh and slowing down impulses #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:41 +0100)
@pd2ot #occhat So, are there situations where mindfulness is more helpful than reflection, and vice versa?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @helen_otuk can be mindful/reflecting-in-action @ work – for me in #mentalhealth especially noticing my emotional response #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes haha! I am on the same boat as you. I can tend to over analyze things! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @HealingFromBPD that’s a good way to look at it! I like it! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:58 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 Agree with that one #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:59 +0100)
@kirstyes @BPDFFS @pd2ot Ruminating is a huge issue I think for many. #occhat so is it ok to spend time mindfully ruminating?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:11 +0100)
@pd2ot @BPDFFS Exactly #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:14 +0100)
@BPDFFS @BillWongOT That would be a very good reason to drive mindfully #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @HealingFromBPD @kirstyes i like how you describe the process going from mindless(ish?) to mindful in your posts #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:24 +0100)
@OnyxBPD @HealingFromBPD What is #occhat ?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @pd2ot @helen_otuk I stopped myself a few times from saying something in my hand therapy placement due 2 mindfulness. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:00 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk @pd2ot my difficulty is the non-judgmental part – i’m constantly assessing – but maybe about intention – open minded #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @Claire_OT ooh that sounds like a really interesting point – can you elaborate? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:31 +0100)
@adiemusfree #occhat I’ve used mindfulness in everyday life for about 20 yrs, integrate with practice & reflect on therapy session after the session(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:35 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @pd2ot I see mindfulness and reflection as sometimes being intertwined #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:37 +0100)
@clissa89 RT @HealingFromBPD : @pd2ot I see mindfulness and reflection as sometimes being intertwined #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:43 +0100)
@kirstyes @HealingFromBPD Will take a look after. Thanks. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:55 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BPDFFS but if you see me driving on the service streets, you will just find a punk playing extremely loud music… lol! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:55 +0100)
@pd2ot @BPDFFS I’ve often used mindfulness when driving if preoccupied, I imagine I’m describing every action I do/all I see in short sent. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:10 +0100)
@BPDFFS @kirstyes @pd2ot it stops the ruminating, if you are in the moment, concentrating on the one thing or practising mindful meditation. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:27 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I have enjoyed engaging in the 366project I often use that a daily mindful moment. Then reflection on the situation when posting. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:38 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @clissa89 : @HealingFromBPD @kirstyes i like how you describe the process going from mindless(ish?) to mindful in your posts #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:40 +0100)
@BillWongOT @adiemusfree maybe it’s embedded in our practice that we might not realize initially? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:43 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot i’ve been trying to cultivate more mindful approach by reflecting-before-action, taking moment to notice before seeing client #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:45 +0100)
@Claire_OT @pd2ot Definitely, some challenging situations in our profession would certainly benefit from mindfullness over and above reflection #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:04 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @clissa89 @kirstyes Thank you. That’s pretty much what happens. Nervous system responds initially, then Mindful “Wise Mind” #BPD #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:06 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes i over-analyse/ruminate too – mindfulness a good challenge – non-judgmental, awareness #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:11 +0100)
@pd2ot @adiemusfree Can you say a little more? Maybe how you feel it benefits practice? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:12 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley Maybe. But links back to @clissa89 point about naming feelings, can’t move on if don’t recognise. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:17 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes n e room in that boat for me! Used mindfulness to get over my fear of failing on placement. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:17 +0100)
@Trio33 @HealingFromBPD @pd2ot #occhat yes I can see that too. I certainly try to reflect mindfully.(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:30 +0100)

@clissa89 @adiemusfree wow that’s great – can you tell us more about how you use mindfulness in your everyday life? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:29:09 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @gilliancrossley @kirstyes haha! you won’t fail. I am more prone to fail than you, but I still passed them. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:29:22 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @BPDFFS i often “dissociate” (not clinically) when walking – so make an effort to be mindful – more relaxing! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:29:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @gilliancrossley @kirstyes now I am preparing for my board exam in the states along with studying for my OTD program. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:29:52 +0100)

@Claire_OT @clissa89 By noticing ad accepting what is happening we can respond i.e. with skill – rather than making a knee-jerk reaction #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:31:16 +0100)
@clissa89 @adiemusfree @BillWongOT agree – intentional aspect important. but think may do it but not know that it’s called “mindfulness” #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:31:17 +0100)
@kirstyes @adiemusfree So, if you aren’t engaging in an occupation how do you use mindfulness to stop ruminating? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:31:29 +0100)

@Claire_OT @adiemusfree I don’t get on with mindfulness breathing exercises, although I’m not anxious I find focus on senses works better #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:39:40 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @adiemusfree : #occhat if breathing is used to guide mindfulness, it can remind anxious ppl of losing control, so I use body awareness …(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:39:43 +0100)
@adiemusfree #occhat mindfulness allows ppl to experience things they’d normally avoid, helps reduce anxiety if done carefully(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:39:51 +0100)

This week’s OTalk host was Bill Wong. The idea of this discussion came about when he had a discussion on Facebook with Gillian Crossley two months ago. He has listened to a lot of live addresses made by Dr. Florence Clark at OT conferences in the US and during his studies at University of Southern California for his Masters and now OT doctorate degrees. Here’s the summary of this week’s chat.

1. How OT community initially perceived ourselves as competitors prior to reading the article/listening to the presentation initially.

@kirstyes
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @trio33 Probably that we aren’t all that competitive – too nice for our own good sometimes. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:06:57 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @Trio33 I didn’t like to think of myself as competitive at all! I see it differently now #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:07:01 +0100)

@kirstyes
@gilliancrossley @billwongot @trio33 It’s possibly the same as people not liking to see themselves as leaders. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:08:33 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @trio33 For me personally, I actually thought she talked about the dog eat dog nature of OT at times. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:10:28 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@kirstyes @BillWongOT @Trio33 mmm.. I think, sometimes you can be perceived as a show off by others if you’re competitive or a leader. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:10:37 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
Is it about being too nice? Not sure I can fit in that category! But I also do not see myself as being competitive in my OT work. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:11:17 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
… to explain, I do not see that I compete against anyone except myself and my own expectations of myself. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:13:03 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
but I did not see it as a competition, I applied for the 1 I wanted, presented my ideas etc. More about the right person for the job #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:17:04 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @Trio33 I agree… and we make the results of winning/getting something look so great. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:12:12 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @Trio33 For example- say a spot in AOTA’s Emerging Leaders Program, OT assoc. president, etc. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:12:40 +0100)

Our thought on the ideas of “competing with” and “pursuit of excellence” by Clark (2011).

@gilliancrossley
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT @Helen_otuk maybe where competition links to leadership is how competition is enacted.Good sportsmanship #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:24:00 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley I did that w/ Jaclyn Tarloff (one of our mutual friends on FB). Best professional move I ever made! #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:26:01 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
@gilliancrossley Agree, good sportsmanship and team work are defiantly more important to me as a person. I have to live with myself. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:26:11 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@Helen_otuk @gilliancrossley I also think it enhances ur professional reputation. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:27:42 +0100)

@charl885
@BillWongOT those could include competition with other people/departments providing similar services…1/2 #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:26:45 +0100)

@charl885
@BillWongOT …in the pursuit of the best services for our clients 2/2 #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:27:59 +0100)

@kirstyes
@BillWongOT Idea of pursuit of excellence & competing with as a team are attractive but sometimes others see pursuit as comp against #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:28:13 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
My feelings are very much influenced by my previous roles. I like to think that I work with people, to achieve the best outcomes 1/2 #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:28:30 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
these are for the people we work for ie clients and the organisation and for the team. 2/2 #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:30:09 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk And I also think that sometimes our “competitors” now could be our “allies” later #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:30:53 +0100)

@charl885
@gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk i truly hope that can happen!i cant help think personalities may come in the way of that sometimes tho.. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:34:06 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@charl885 @BillWongOT OT survival situations can make for ugly competition : ( #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:34:42 +0100)

@kirstyes
Do people think that the idea of competing with should be encouragement to help others push the occupation agenda too? #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:36:02 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley @charl885 Absolutely. That will make the profession look bad within ourselves and those who might use our services. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:36:05 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@charl885 @gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk but how about pursuit of excellence? Does it inspire more evidence based research? #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:36:46 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes if it’s used constructively, absolutely! I see that’s the driving force in my OT journey. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:37:32 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@BillWongOT @charl885 @Helen_otuk i’m sure it does in those who pursue excellence! #otalk ..
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:38:14 +0100)

@kirstyes
@BillWongOT @charl885 @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk I think the driver is there for both doing it and using it in practice. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:38:38 +0100)

@charl885
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT maybe standing your ground in your role at all times will enable survival.competition by being defensive! #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:38:48 +0100)

@kirstyes
@BillWongOT @charl885 @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk Conferences are great for sharing excellence,seem very positive not about boasting #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:39:21 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@BillWongOT @kirstyes #otalk ! yes! I think competing with should be encouraged as part of OT training! and continued in practice
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:39:49 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley @charl885 @Helen_otuk I think the “in those” should be converted to “all”, according to Dr. Clark. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:40:09 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@BillWongOT @charl885 @Helen_otuk for me its not the sting of losing its the sting of failing #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:40:40 +0100)

@charl885
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk Ideally. But it may even be delivering excellent service in everyday clinical practice #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:40:41 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes @charl885 @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk I agree. That’s my approach to my conference presentations. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:41:09 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes @charl885 @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk my objective for my OT conference presentations is to equip OT’s to be better 1’s. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:41:48 +0100)

@charl885
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk At an old job I was always told: ‘today’s high standards are tomorrow’s expectations’ #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:42:01 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@charl885 @BillWongOT @Helen_otuk yes I think competing with has everyday implications for improving services #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:42:06 +0100)

@kirstyes
@gilliancrossley @billwongot any suggestions for how to encourage competing with rather than against in training? #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:42:07 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley hmmm… I think it has to start from the very beginning when we are still students. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:43:16 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@kirstyes @BillWongOT maybe group team building activities? to show the effectiveness of competing with and working together? #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:44:27 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley so it maybe a good idea for OT leadership make appearances to new student orientations. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:44:54 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
To me ‘competing with’ is about everyone wanting the best outcomes for all. Individuals, teams, organisations, profession etc. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:45:14 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@kirstyes @BillWongOT #otalk or peer review, recognition of acheivement?encourage people to be proud of peers rather than competitve/jealous
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:45:37 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes But, I think it’ll be opportunities for students from different disciplines to collaborate w/ each other. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:45:49 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@fullyOccupied but for certain things, unfortunately there r only X winners, and the rest r losers. Can be counterintuitive @ times. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:48:24 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley But if OT leadership coming in during early days when students r trying 2 find their ID’s, not a bad idea. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:49:29 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk #otalk competition needs to be defined in a healthy comp way. but learning to fail and succeed are important lessons.
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:53:34 +0100)

@fullyOccupied
@kirstyes @helen_otuk #otalk used 2 like idea of stretching myself to match(surpass) the best driven by admiration rather than jealousy….
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:54:25 +0100)

@charl885
@fullyOccupied @Helen_otuk by softening could we lose our voice and be forgotten by other health professionals, so clients miss out? #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:55:56 +0100)

Lastly, we have the following take-home points.

@kirstyes
@BillWongOT I think basically that we need to compete with ourselves and strive for excellence to ensure survival and best practice #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:57:31 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@BillWongOT #otalk still undecided on the whole competitiveness thing.. I feel like ‘comp with’ links with leadership and self actualization
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:57:42 +0100)

@charl885
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT i was thinking about self-actualisation too!! #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:59:27 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@kirstyes @BillWongOT so maybe it should be ‘competing with ourselves, together’ ? #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 20:59:53 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
Do we need to compete? Why compete? Is it healthy, does it progress us as individuals or a profession? We can work with and together #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:00:36 +0100)

@charl885
@BillWongOT I’m unsure now! I thought I already knew, but I guess that’s the beauty of an #otalk I will go away and mull it over!
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:00:39 +0100)

@fullyOccupied
@charl885 @helen_otuk #otalk ah – it wasn’t a suggestion, more a view that twiddling a word doesn’t really change the meaning!
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:00:50 +0100)

@kirstyes
? @gilliancrossley : @kirstyes @BillWongOT so maybe it should be ‘competing with ourselves, together’ ? #otalk ? like it
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:01:17 +0100)

@Helen_otuk
@fullyOccupied I agree, but I will keep on sharing and working with. At least I can sleep well and know I am doing my best! #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:01:58 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley I was thinking in line of @kirstyes . We’ve to strive for the best, and also inspire our OT colleagues to do same. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:02:35 +0100)

@kirstyes
@Helen_otuk I think competition does drive things on/ advances.Think about the Olympics/Paralympics/Computing but needs to be healthy #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:03:10 +0100)

@charl885
@BillWongOT I think I need to work out first in which areas I’m competitive, I didn’t think I was!! great #otalk this week 🙂
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:04:16 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@Keeper85 @kirstyes @billwongot I think that maybe depends on the aim and outcome of the competitiveness #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:06:36 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@Helen_otuk I think to certain extent, yes! It does drive us to do things we might previously have not thought of on a + way. #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:12:59 +0100)

@gilliancrossley
@Keeper85 @kirstyes @billwongot as an OT i think this were reflection and keeping patients best interests at heart will help #otalk
(Tue, 21 Aug 2012 21:13:05 +0100)

@BillWongOT
@kirstyes @Keeper85 @gilliancrossley Yes- because being too much of a bulldog will not win you many friends in OT. #otalk

@silkejaeger #otalk hi everyone. I will try to take part in the discussion although I’m not really friend with Skype. Hopefully I learn a bit more.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:13 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 @Helen_otuk @munchknmunch #otalk I have, it’s a great post, prompting me to get thinking about the pros/cons of the topic(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:31 +0100)
@clissa89 @silkejaeger great to have you here whether or not you and skype are friends 😉 🙂 #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:37 +0100)

@BillWongOT @silkejaeger Nowadays… you can Skype via Facebook. I did that with a friend a few days ago. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:15 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @munchknmunch agree, prompted lots of thinking for me even tho i briefly skimmed! sparked off ideas #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:41 +0100)
@munchknmunch #otalk I had so much to say, I didn’t think twitter could handle it, hence the blog post! the article I link to at the end brings up ethics(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:44 +0100)
@RachHallster @clissa89 @helen_otuk @munchknmunch silly q but how do I access the blog? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:55 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @munchknmunch ‘s blog post focuses on utilising skype with clients which i think is something we can also discuss.
#otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:10:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @RachHallster not silly at all – i should have posted link. @munchknmunch do you have one handy? comp being slow #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:10:21 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @pd2ot @munchknmunch but u gotta b careful cuz I heard Skype is not considered as a secured medium in telehealth standards. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:04 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I was also thinking about using skype or similar as a tool between professionals… meetings, peer support, supervision etc. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:06 +0100)

@munchknmunch @clissa89 #OTalk in my second placement (secure MH), Skype used so that a client could contact her family overseas, had to use specific PC(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:14:31 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk recently saw something in news about Skype not being as secure as led to believe. Something re Intelligence Services???(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:14 +0100)
@silkejaeger @kirstyes #otalk i failed with the hardware-stuff first, had a wrong headset that did’nt run with the apple. that wasn’t a good start.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:30 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly I think it does help in some cases when the physical distance between the family/client & the professional is too great. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:47 +0100)
@Helen_otuk we use lync in my workplace which is similar to skype but on network and has the increased security, agreed by employer to utilise. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:47 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 Tammy Richmond in USC is another name. I’ve handouts from her presentation in email. Will forward it 2 anyone interested. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:16:41 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk MT @munchknmunch : worrying w regards 2 client information, but is it issue for professionals talking about egintervention research?(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:16:55 +0100)
@munchknmunch @BillWongOT #otalk sounds interesting!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:17:07 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT thanks BIll, how does Tammy use skype/similar? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:17:17 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk not come across Lync! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:17:41 +0100)
@clissa89 @TheSoapDragon hey you, there’s an #OTalk going on now if you’re interested 🙂 re skype for professional use(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:09 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I know that some researches have used skype (or similar) for interviews and recorded them. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:16 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk recording great feature for research. have seen this in some studies where participants international #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 her philosophy is that it depends on the available technology of the client and the facility. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:58 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 it is attached to our network microsoft tool #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:19:00 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes Yes, it is prob not a great idea to drive and skype simultaneously:) #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:19:37 +0100)
@BillWongOT @munchknmunch I will send it to whoever is doing the write up. That way you all will have access. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:19:46 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk Yes, that’s actually the method I will be using for the research part of my OTD project. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:20:14 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @BillWongOT that will be me Bill, thanks #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:20:42 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk Also, I know Skype is allowed for USC and CSUDH’s OT qualitative research classes. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:20:56 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk Videoconferencing useful in services in rural areas – especially if clients would have difficulty accessing central location(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:22:01 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk PM me your email when live chat is over. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:22:01 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 yup… or in some cases within California, for example. It will take 4-5 hours to get from LA to Sacramento. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:10 +0100)
@pd2ot Not Skype but had a video conference CPA done when in the TC, both I and staff involved found it challenging (though useful) #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:26 +0100)
@stairliftscheme RT @Helen_otuk : @BillWongOT that will be me Bill, thanks #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:32 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot what challenges did you encounter? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:47 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot that reminds me, have had placement in Trust where weekly review meetings had option for videoconferencing #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:24:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli haha! My preceptor meetings for my OTD project w/ Sarah Bodell will be done via Skype. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:24:30 +0100)
@CharOReilly @BillWongOT are you taking a different approache to your questioning for your OTD project? would it be different if it be facetoface #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:24:49 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT #OTalk tend to use socially in the evenings but can be unreliable, this would be a big problem in a meeting/conference. Can be frustrating.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:25:09 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 #OTalk Video linked to trauma, so I felt very uncomfortable. At that point I hadn’t dealt with it.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:25:22 +0100)
@clissa89 @MrsHaighOT that’s true, slow connections/glitches. used G+ Hangouts w/ similar issues. frustrating – & can lead to misunderstanding? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:12 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly no… because physically I couldn’t do that. I don’t want to make round trips/long distance phone calls every month. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:22 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 #OTalk I think it can be valuable, until my last review my consultant from home area hadn’t been involved so allowed involvement(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:26 +0100)
@kirstyes I prefer voice or text only use of Skype, not the biggest fan of being on video and it tends to be a bit hit and miss anyway #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:56 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly In this case, Skype allowed me to have more variety in terms of picking a preceptor for my OTD project is concerned. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:27:14 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I have been using the lync system for meetings and thinks with colleagues within the same organisation. Works well. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:27:47 +0100)
@munchknmunch @kirstyes #OTalk I think video is very important in some situations, particularly with clients for body language and attention monitoring(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:27:51 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes been on video before (personal call) where connection dropped. person thought i had hung up in anger. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:28:14 +0100)
@BillWongOT @MH4OT In US, the regulations can be pretty strict. You can only do it within the same state, or the states you have OT license in. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:28:50 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot that does sound v valuable, but also difficult emotionally. glad a home professional could be involved tho! #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:25 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 #OTalk no technology is perfect, and not always Skype’s fault if call drops!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:32 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT @clissa89 absolutely, it could be quite distressing for a service user, to be cut off mid concersation #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:47 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 #OTalk as with all tech, with increased capability comes more potential problems(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:52 +0100)
@BillWongOT @munchknmunch @kirstyes yeah… but I think you have to give the client or caregiver the consent form- virtual or live. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:30:11 +0100)
@clissa89 @munchknmunch yes you are right. will always be potential problems #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @MrsHaighOT @clissa89 I can anticipate that. I got cut off a few times during my 1st preceptor meeting with Sarah Bodell. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:17 +0100)
@clissa89 @munchknmunch thinking perhaps if was using professionally with client with abandonment issues would discuss potential tech problems #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:45 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli Not mine. I have to do brick and mortar classes. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:54 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 ooops not good #OTalk did you have an alternative way to contact to explain? Or connection picked up(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:32:29 +0100)
@kirstyes @munchknmunch Very true. Just a personal preference I think. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @munchknmunch If I were the OT in this instance, 1st thing I would ask is if they have experience using Skype or similar. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:09 +0100)
@CharOReilly @Helen_otuk technology always poses risks of breaking doesnt it? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:11 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes think we switched to text until able to call again. maybe not option with client #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:15 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 yeah, and always good to have backup communication just to quickly say you’re still there if internet dies for a minute! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:26 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 maybe not appropriate in such cases? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:33 +0100)
@allisulli @BillWongOT Nothing wrong w that! #OT is a “hands on” profession and group dynamics important in learning- different issues w Skype #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:39 +0100)
@munchknmunch @CharOReilly #otalk my smartphone does cool things, likes to freeze occassionally. �10 backup lasts forever but only phones #technologyfail (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:46 +0100)
@CharOReilly @MrsHaighOT @clissa89 thats a valid point. Maybe a seperate risk ax should be completed before any online contact with a serviceuser #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:47 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk possibly discussing risk of + making plan about what if connection drops enough. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:51 +0100)
@kirstyes #OTalk The text feature is useful for sharing web links etc, or keeping track of key points of a conversation.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:08 +0100)
@Helen_otuk But even f2f meetings can have issues, how many times has anyone been late for a meeting due to traffic / accident / roadworks #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:21 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes yes im big fan of that – and also as this can be archived, dont need to scribble down links etc! #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:29 +0100)
@kirstyes Has anyone got the share screen feature of Skype working? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli I agree. So different from Math and Statistics… lol! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:45 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes i used Yugma in the past as separate software. think this has been inc into skype but not used yet #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:57 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Always need to have back up… as i do when doing to f2f I will make sure I have phone number in case anything unexpected arises. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:36:14 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Yugma now one to me. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:36:34 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk That happened to me at an OT conference a little over a year ago. My car broke down, so I missed almost a whole day! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:36:47 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes think it is now just part of skype, not sure if available separately. have you used screen share? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:27 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk For me is email, Facebook, or even IM. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:28 +0100)
@munchknmunch @kirstyes yes, I sometimes watch my boyfriend play a computer game! screenshare is fine/works at ok speed for us #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT oh no!! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:44 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 No, I tried but couldn’t seem to get it working. Wondered if was a paid feature. #OTalk could google how to!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:38:33 +0100)
@CharOReilly #otalk which service user groups do you think skype would work best with? #adolescense ?(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:38:35 +0100)
@tOTal_ability @BillWongOT @mh4ot ditto for Canada (province not state) #telerehab #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:38:54 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOReilly i’m aware of videoconferencing software being used successfully with people with CFS/ME in a rural area #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:15 +0100)
@kirstyes @munchknmunch Lol! Is there any special steps you have to take at either end other than press share screen button? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly I might be biased on this one. But, I think those who are on the higher end of the autism spectrum. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:46 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT @kirstyes @clissa89 tried to have conference with the family but it was at an additional cost for video of us all #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:51 +0100)
@clissa89 @MrsHaighOT oh is that because it’s a group call? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:11 +0100)
@Helen_otuk think important to identify not just skype but teleconferencing in general. Maybe can have access to more secure services? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:29 +0100)
@munchknmunch @MrsHaighOT @kirstyes @clissa89 yes, group video is a premium feature – google hangouts would maybe be better in this situation #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk Now that I think of it, as a researcher, I also need to have a voice recorder if I have to call over the phone! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:54 +0100)
@Helen_otuk with skype group video is a paid for service. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:58 +0100)
@Helen_otuk has anyone used google+ hangouts?
#otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:41:56 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk yes 😉 but in early days, not sure if software has improved? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:42:24 +0100)
@munchknmunch @Helen_otuk no, I’m more of a Skype fan because of iPad app #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:42:38 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 I think so, can steam and do lots more now. But i have not used for a while. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:43:14 +0100)
@silkejaeger @silkejaeger #otalk didn’t trust skype at the beginning. but heard today that it’s used by syrians to talk without being scanned(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:43:16 +0100)

@RhbAlternatives You can now have group video chats on Gmail – or hangouts on Google+…Google seems a lot better than skype for video conferencing #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:45:37 +0100)

@clissa89 RT @Keeper85 : @allisulli @clissa89 something like a Skype helpline #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:57:22 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli @clissa89 @Keeper85 & it could help clients w/ anxiety 2 feel at ease (since they can access from places they r comfy at) #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:57:25 +0100)
@CarlDunnJr MT @allisulli : @clissa89 @Keeper85 It is the future… Love my ipad! Think skype could help w post-natal depression, isolation #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:57:34 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 if any consolation, I never ever use facetime – always Skype! haha #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:57:39 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT yes agree! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:57:43 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk Technology has fantastic potential to connect people with similar experiences and reduce isolation. Not only videoconferencing(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:58:15 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @kirstyes @munchknmunch @pd2ot @allisulli @kepper85 It takes time 2 master it. when I become academia OT, I’ll get ipad. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:58:27 +0100)
@munchknmunch @Keeper85 a lot cheaper than using a phone to call a helpline, especially if trying to call 0800 numbers from a cellphone in the UK #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:58:30 +0100)
@kirstyes Right for next week’s #occhat we will be following up from the artistry vs science one by being creative. #OTalk There is creative ‘homework(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:58:58 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 Yeah… I think it will be good idea to deliver LRD interventions through Skype. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:59:18 +0100)
@Helen_otuk ok last minute… what is your take away thought? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:59:27 +0100)
@kirstyes I will post link/ further guidance for next week’s #occhat later tonight. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:59:29 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes oooh homework?? sounds v Behavioural Therapy-ish! 😉 #occhat #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:59:34 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 If you’ve to have clients to fill out forms, just email them in advance or tell them it will be available to them later. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:00:12 +0100)
@munchknmunch #otalk I personally didn’t think of ethics and confidentiality issues before – definitely food for thought. also, make sure to have backup!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:00:16 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk technology has many opportunities but also drawbacks #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:00:21 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Fun homework hopefully. #OTalk #occhat (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:00:31 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @kirstyes Some of us have turned it in. Of course, in two weeks… you also have some HW, too… since I am hosting. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:00:57 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes Do I get swot points done mine… but when I look at guidance, may have a resit! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:01:01 +0100)
@allisulli @Keeper85 @clissa89 if opt-in consumer choice, would that help mitigate some of the privacy issues? Skype #mh helpline from @MH4OT #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:01:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @BillWongOT @kirstyes how has everyone done their homework already?!?!?! don’t even know what it is yet! 🙂 #OTalk #occhat (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:01:39 +0100)
@RhbAlternatives @silkejaeger I was turned off from the beginning to skype because of all the malware it used to download to your comp #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:01:41 +0100)
@BillWongOT @munchknmunch I think it will be more important for a researcher than a clinician? Or about equal? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:01:54 +0100)
@clissa89 @RhbAlternatives oh i dont remember that? I was living in South Africa when first came out, Skype was banned #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:02:24 +0100)
@munchknmunch @BillWongOT yeah, I think definitely safer for between professionals, but also very useful in today’s global world #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:02:44 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 we did discuss it on the first discussion night, don’t think you were there? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:02:51 +0100)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @clissa89 I agree it was a fun homework! #otalk I did it the day after since I didn’t want to forget it. :)(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:03:17 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk @BillWongOT haha no i dont remember any mention of homework – looking forward to it! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:03:56 +0100)
@munchknmunch @Symbolic_Life stay at home service? but isn’t that like therapists going into the commmunity anyway? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:04:01 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli @Keeper85 @clissa89 @MH4OT I think that would help greatly! After all, they agree it as a method to deliver intervention. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:04:05 +0100)
@clissa89 @Symbolic_Life stay at home service? in case of CFS/ME – time/energy/financial cost of travelling long distance #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:04:42 +0100)

@BillWongOT @munchknmunch For my OT research, I actually use it as a medium to help my subjects (individuals w/ AS) to feel at ease. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:05:11 +0100)
@kirstyes Submitting ‘homework’ isn’t mandatory for attendance but will give us things to discuss. #OTalk #occhat (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:05:22 +0100)
@RhbAlternatives @clissa89 yea it had a lot of issues in the beginning, at least for people in the US #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:05:26 +0100)
@silkejaeger @rhbalternatives #otalk i think it’s important to only use skype with clients who feel comfortable with this.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:05:27 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Well thanks for another great chat. Keep it going I will not grab the tweets for 24hrs.
#otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:05:41 +0100)
@clissa89 @silkejaeger @rhbalternatives yes i agree. can think of many clients who wouldnt. but also many who would #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:05:46 +0100)

@munchknmunch @RhbAlternatives @clissa89 all technology has an initial learning-to-walk-and-talk phase! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:06:15 +0100)
@BillWongOT @munchknmunch well… you can always go on later. We don’t grab chat at least until 24 hours after live chat. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:06:19 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @silkejaeger @rhbalternatives I think those who are not well versed with technology may not like like the idea. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:07:07 +0100)
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk Take away thought. Useful if you know how to use it. Always have back up. may need to use more secure versions #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:07:27 +0100)
@BillWongOT @munchknmunch @RhbAlternatives @clissa89 and for some people, it requires longer time. Some people can just pick it up in seconds. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:07:35 +0100)
@munchknmunch @BillWongOT though don’t be prejudiced! my grandmother looooves video skyping with my aunt and baby cousin in the States! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:07:49 +0100)

Writing creatively as a way to develop occupational artistry – preparation

Next Tuesday 14th August 2012 during our #occhat talk we will be following up from the #occhat Allison Sullivan hosted ‘Occupational Artistry as an Antidote to Occupational Science’ – you can find the summary and grabchat by clicking on the underlined links.

One suggestion for developing occupational artistry was to write creatively. So, in preparation for the occhat I am asking as many people as possible to give this a go. It isn’t mandatory for the chat but hopefully the more pieces we have the better the chat.

I appreciate that people may be anxious about writing creatively or that they may not have done so for a while. I delivered a workshop on using creative writing for reflection at the College of Occupational Therapists Conference 2012 and on my blog I have posted the handouts for reference. They contain some examples of writing I have used to ‘make sense’ of topics/situations.

The techniques I talk about are:
Found poems – where you use an existing page or two of writing and ‘find’ the poem in it by circling odd words (giving credit to the original source of course).
Form poems – poems that use a defined form of line length, rhyme etc – some examples are given but there are many many forms.
Free verse poems – Poems where the form is defined by the content and anything goes, often uses rhyme, repetition etc.
Fiction/Short Stories – Using the short story form including narration, dialogue etc etc to make sense of academic text, reflect on a situation etc.

You could also use things like ‘diary’ formats, writing an unsent letter etc. Creative writing is subjective so just give it a go. If you have a blog please post it there and add the link in the comments for this post, or you can post your version in the comments or on facebook (or alternatively if you’d like us to post it on the blog e-mail it to OTalk.Occhat@gmail.com with the Subject line – Writing Creatively).

What you write about is up to you too but again I offer some suggestions:

As in the handout write a short story about some sort of complex theory or article you have read – something that helps you to ‘see’ how that would look in or impact on practice.
Reflect on a difficult situation, or one that has gone really well, analyse what factors impacted on the outcome – you could do this using poetry or a story form using dialogue for example.

Please do remember to maintain confidentiality and privacy and change names, situations etc, try to ensure nobody is identifiable.

You might like to think about the pros and cons of using this technique and how you felt writing and afterwards as discussion points for the chat.

Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Looking forward to reading your examples and chatting with you on Tuesday.
Kirsty

#Occhat: Restorative Occupations Summary 31 July 2012

“To be true connoisseurs of occupation, in our own lives and in the lives of our patients, we must look at the full 24-hour round of activities in which humans engage. As Occupational Therapists, we must understand not only where energy is spent, but also how it is created.” (Pierce, 2003, p. 98)

What is Restoration?

@clissa89 @DebbiiHarrison restorative occupations are those that give energy. e.g. eating/drinking, self care, quiet focus activities #occhat
@clissa89 @DebbiiHarrison for me, how restorative an occupation is depends on how much i’m focusing my attention on the experience #occhat
@kirstyes @clissa89 @debbiiharrison Are you using the Doris Pierce def Clarissa or another? #occhat
@gilliancrossley @clissa89 @kirstyes @helen_otuk @mommagilly #occhat do restorative occupations have to have any other purpose or is just restoration enough?
@Symbolic_Life #occhat I think restorative occupations also promote mindfulness because its something you take time for you?
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly I think rest should be enough but in our soc we often feel need to be prod #occhat
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly my occupation all cross boundaries… I think sleep is the only one purely restorative #occhat
@Symbolic_Life #occhat PIERCE…. Therapeutic wheel Of Power will hook all up.. She is all about time life balance and recognition.#makeithappen

 

Restorative Occupations

Eating/Drinking:

@kirstyes One restorative activity rather than occ I’m rubbish at is drinking enough. Let my tea go cold earlier. #occhat
@Lisa_D_OT Have a good #occhat , I’m going to concentrate on the doing of restorative occupations – off out for a meal  see you next week
@Helen_otuk So true! RT @LeonoraOT : Yes, being hungry can impact my mood as well.#occhat

Mindfulness/Relaxation:

@pd2ot @Symbolic_Life @clissa89 #occhat Me too. Mindfulness exercises are a key restorative occupation for me
@DebbiiHarrison @Helen_otuk I think that gentle activity is more relaxing than relaxation exercises which just wind me up #occhat
@allisulli @kirstyes @pd2ot 1 thing that helped me with sleep is breathing in & out through the left nostril w 4-count inhale/exhale. Refocuses #occhat
@clissa89 #occhat RT @HandyOTJO : @clissa89 Relaxation. Using an app on my phone when I go to bed each night works really well.

Movies/TV:

@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly Actually watching cheesy films I’ve seen lots of times before works for me #occhat
@kirstyes @pd2ot @clissa89 I’m terrible at that. It’s why I loved my cinema double feature. I was present in that occupation. #occhat
@DebbiiHarrison @clissa89 watching the Olympics has been restorative seeing such joy for the sports people achieving their dreams #occhat

Music:

@mommagilly @clissa89 listening and singing along to Jason Mraz..:o) #occhat
@BillWongOT @allisulli @Helen_otuk For me, my definition will be able to come home and play a piece or two on the piano. #occhat

Nature:

@clissa89 Been having stressful day today, so took a few minutes out to go into garden and look at/smell some lovely red flowers #occhat
@clissa89 #occhat MT @DebbiiHarrison : @gilliancrossley @clissa89 I’m getting it now – good stuff especially enjoying nature, trees, flowers, mountains
@Symbolic_Life #Occhat Restoration!!!! ❤ lake district #UK http://t.co/SdrMBytt
@allisulli I love gardening, sitting in my garden, photographing my flowers, and sharing the photos on SM. I dream about it all winter long #occhat
@jfaias @clissa89 : What’s the most restorative occupation you’ve engaged in today?#occhat ? having a beer by the beach

Organising:

@kirstyes Anyone else find organising/spring cleaning restorative. I’m hoping to find the energy to do some during my time off #occhat
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes organising can be… clean no! #occhat
@pd2ot @kirstyes #occhat Often organising/cleaning leads onto good productive uni work, once my environment is sorted!
@gilliancrossley @clissa89 @kirstyes #occhat I feel organizing is restorative! I felt great after doing a to do list this morning!

Pet-Related:

@Helen_otuk Have to agree, my dog walks are great… in the woods, on the beach… even just at the local field. Love it! #occhat
@allisulli @Helen_otuk I find it especially restorative if I can take the dog for a walk in the middle of the work day. Just enjoy it so #occhat
@clissa89 @allisulli just realised, probably the most restorative part of my day is cuddles with the kitten when i wake up #occhat

Photography:

@Symbolic_Life #occhat I also use photography because looking through a lens allows you to appreciate the beauty you are capturing..! #creativity #mindful

Physical Activity (Walking/Gentle Activity/Exercise/Dance):

@clissa89 #occhat MT @mommagilly : I like walking but have not had the energy or opportunity lately.on placement in the week and pooped at the weekend
@DebbiiHarrison @Helen_otuk I think that gentle activity is more relaxing than relaxation exercises which just wind me up #occhat
@Symbolic_Life #Occhat remember exercise has been outlined as restorative.. more energy… Higher enophins realised… Feel good hormone…  .
@pd2ot @clissa89 #occhat Salsa is often my daily dose!
@allisulli @pd2ot @clissa89 @gilliancrossley #bikram yoga has been the most restorative for me. Very physical practice, hot room. No mantra. #occhat

Shopping:

@gilliancrossley #occhat shopping…………….. nuf said
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley but not shopping for clothes. I find that irritating. I need to take a top back actually. #occhat
@clissa89 @kirstyes that reminds me, wandering around old bookshop at my leisure… very restorative…love the smell of old books #occhat

Sleep:

@OT_Expert @clissa89 @pd2ot #occhat i agree. there are many things I tell myself are more important than sleep,but it’s not true! Sleep is SO important
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly my occupation all cross boundaries… I think sleep is the only one purely restorative #occhat
@Symbolic_Life #occhat without me time and sleeping it may promote fatigue resulting in loss of efficiency? Social expectation may effect this! #CFS ?
@OT_Expert @pd2ot @clissa89 @kirstyes #occhat It’s awful having disrupted sleep. I always think one can cope with almost anything if get enough sleep
@clissa89 @OT_Expert @kirstyes @pd2ot not having enough sleep makes me more vulnerable to emotions & slows cognition too #occhat
@TheSoapDragon #OTalk / #Occhat yes sleep can be restorative but work so stressful find I am “sleepworking” trying to solve work probs in dreams!!

Writing/Reading/Blogging:

@Trio33 Have a great #occhat tonight. Taking son’s friend home so can’t chat. I’ve a few restorative activities..writing being best as so versatile
@DrieCulturen @clissa89 You know what gives you lots of energy is being #creative in what ever you do. I enjoy writing & teaching: gives me enery #occhat
@DebbiiHarrison @clissa89 @kirstyes oh yes I love bookshops libraries and reading a great book – all restorative #occhat
@gilliancrossley @TheSoapDragon #occhat i do this I find writing everything down helps otherwise I go to bed worrying that I will forget!
@pd2ot Often using my brain is restorative, hence how blogging can energise me #occhat

Our Own Occupational (Im)balance (and Guilt Over “Me” Time?)

@clissa89 @kirstyes teehee. it’s probably a bit ironic me doing the restorative chat… still not well myself because im Not Resting! #occhat
@OTalk_Occhat Tonight’s #occhat is now on restoration occupations. Sounds like lots of us need the reminder ;0) creative reflection will now be in two wks
@pd2ot @clissa89 yes, I am sensing a theme. I predict tonight’s #occhat will be useful for many of us, though not sure I have time to attend!

@pd2ot @clissa89 @kirstyes @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk @mommagilly #occhat Guilt over ‘me time’ is often v challending for many with BPD
@clissa89 #occhat RT @mommagilly : @kirstyes @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk I can’t really say I make the most of ‘me time’ it seems to get wasted. :/
@clissa89 #occhat MT @mommagilly : @kirstyes @gilliancrossley think just because there are so many things that need attention… maybe this is inbuilt
@gilliancrossley @clissa8 @kirstyes #occhat the ability to engage in restorative occupations must be linked to lifestyle, personality, norms etc
@kirstyes @clissa89 : @kirstyes does constantly being connected via technology risk reducing our restoration? #occhat ? Yes I think it prob does
@clissa89 @Symbolic_Life thing is, i know this theory inside and out. but i’m still not very good at doing it in my own life! #occhat #makeithappen

@clissa89 @DebbiiHarrison for me, how restorative an occupation is depends on how much i’m focusing my attention on the experience #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:42 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Sleeping is an important one for me and another I’ve been neglecting. Had good 10hrs last night though. #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:44 +0100)
