I chose the occupation of tea-making because it is a common place task that individuals engage in in the workplace, at home or out with friends. Tea-making can be a way of caring for others and is primarily a domestic task. I have been involved in tea-making on a Fieldwork placement where patients or clients are asked to complete a tea assessment for the Occupational Therapist to assess safety and the client's ability to carry out a task. In Humanities for Occupational Therapy making a cup of tea is an activity of value for its familiarity, social interaction and therapeutic qualities.
