In this episode we are talking all about human rights, social inclusion and population health with Clare Hocking. We discuss: 

  • The paradigm shift Clare proposes from the conventional notion of “you are what you eat” to the more encompassing concept of “you are what you do” 
  • How to drive social change as an OT 
  • Addressing issues of injustice and human rights that are impacting participation and engagement in occupations 
  • How we can promote inclusion, diversity and more equitable communities 
  • Ways our profession can address anti-racism and decolinization 

Clare Hocking is a New Zealand occupational therapy academic, and New Zealand’s first occupation therapy professor. She is currently a full professor at the Auckland University of Technology. Clare’s goal is to transform occupational therapy by influencing practitioners, academics, researchers and students, nationally and internationally. Clare co-authored the 3rd edition of Wilcock’s Occupational Perspective of Health, co-edited Occupational Science: Society, Inclusion, Participation, and has authored more than 30 chapters and encyclopedia entries, and over 120 journal articles. Clare has served as the Executive Editor of the Journal of Occupational Science since 1997, and partnered with Emeritus Professor Liz Townsend to revise the World Federation of Occupational Therapy’s Position Statement on Human Rights.
