Wed 3 May 2017, 17:15 – 18:15 BST
SHOUT are very pleased to announce the speakers for our final talk of the year, Professor Viviane Maximono and Margarita Gonzalez. This talk will be split into two and will take the focus of the influence of Occupational Therapy in South American countries Colombia and Brazil.
Margarita Gonzalez is a World Federation Occupational Therapy delegate from Colombia, who divides her time between London and Bogota. She has many years experience as a professional and volunteer. At the end of the longest civil conflict of recent times, Colombian occupational therapists are an important part of the peace process now being implemented.
Margarita talk about the history of Occupational Therapy in Colombia, the numbers of Occupational Therapists and its distribution and growth, what are Occupational Therapists s in Colombia are doing in terms of strategy from the perspective of the Colombian College of Occupational Therapists and from the WFOT. She will also talk about the education sector and Occupational Therapy approach.
Viviane Maximono will explain the experience of using innovative pedagogical strategies that had been developed in Occupational Therapy teaching of the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil and discusses different cognitive policies in the teaching and learning processes. It presents the concept of ‘inventive learning’ as a cognitive policy in which the students are challenged to create situations, questions and new ideas, instead of presenting answers to existing problems. The approach of teachers and the use of particular pedagogical strategies can favor and support inventive learning and the education of a professional who is better prepared to work with the complexities of health and social care in the contemporary world.
Viviane Maximono is a Brazilian Occupational Therapist and has been working in the field for 35 years. She worked in public and private Mental Health institutions, in a familiar health service, and also in a house for disable people. Viviane has a Ph.D. in Mental Health and studied Occupational Therapy Groups. Since 2000 she has working in Universities within Occupational Therapy education.

Since last July she has lived in London and working as a visiting professor at Goldsmiths University of London, in Department of Art with Dr. Susan Kelly studying the use of Body and artistic activities in Health and Occupational Therapy education.
