OT for Warrior Transition Unit 
 


Occupational Therapy (OT) is a rehabilitation profession that makes use of purposeful activity to promote independence in the life areas of work, self-care, and leisure activities. 

OT’s role in the WTB is to help Soldiers attain optimal occupational performance and gain a sense of mastery as they transition back to independent, productive living.  

The concept of work as a therapeutic medium has been a core concept since the inception of occupational therapy.  Work often provides a sense of security, belonging and self-esteem; it is a role with which all Soldiers can identify. 

WTB OT Functions: 

  • Promote the Soldier’s Transition back to the role of worker, weather military or civilian, through vocational exploration and/or work hardening and conditioning.
  • Help guide Soldiers toward reasonable short and long-term goals that reflect the Soldier’s vocational and avocational interests. 
  • Assist with work reintegration (Temporary Duty Assignments) which is a Soldier’s work and is expected of all able Soldiers. 
  • Address life skills (i.e. leisure or recreation), organizational skills (i.e. financial or time management), occupational performance, and potential for work placement. 
  • Assess limitations that prevent or delay the return to the worker role and provide recommendations for environmental adaptations or equipment.
