This chapter provides an overview of the chapters of this handbook that exemplify the occupational therapist’s role as a teacher of the client. This teaching addresses cognitive, neuromusculoskeletal, and movement-related and sensory functioning plus psychosocial and work-related participation. Natural and intermediary learning are introduced, and the latter is illustrated by the case of Jane. The therapeutic learning process is described. Therapeutic educational theory approaches, such as behavioral and cognitive programs for active learning applied in clinical practice, are summarized. The various teaching facilitators or therapeutic media, such as dialogue techniques, strategies, and mediated learning related to therapeutic teaching, are presented and exemplified with clinical use.
