Speaker: Dr. Mary Egan is a professor in the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Ottawa. Her research focuses on the process of returning to valued occupations, both in the presence and the absence of therapy. She is also particularly interested in critical reflection on the difficulty of enabling valued activity in a world that often does not understand the complexity of this work.

- Reflect on individual and program concepts of community reintegration
