Spirituality is often identified as a core component of holistic occupational therapy practice. A clear and concise definition of spirituality remains elusive, but most definitions acknowledge that spirituality shapes the way people understand life and impacts their participation in occupations. Spirituality can influence people's motivation to engage in a particular behaviour and morally guide their actions. Compared to religion, spirituality is often more individualistic and involves finding deeper meaning within oneself. The Canadian Model of Occupational Performance and Engagement (CMOP-E) places spirituality at the person's core. When working with clients, occupational therapists consider how spirituality affects the client-therapist relationship in all stages, from assessment to intervention. During assessments, therapists critically reason a client's spirituality by asking questions such as, "Despite your present experience, how do you see your life playing out in the future?" During goal-setting, therapists develop client-centred goals and bring meaning to their lives to positively influence their spiritual wellbeing. Interventions need to be dignified and may include aspects of spirituality, whether or not it is intentional. Spirituality can help bring meaning and purpose into people's daily lives and benefit all occupational therapy practice stages. What does spirituality mean to you?
