Abstract [en]

Background and Aim: This study describes the transformation of 15 occupational therapist students'paradigms into occupational therapists'paradigms according to Törnebohm's theory of paradigms over a period of 6 years. This research particularly considers the paradigm components world view and field of action view in Törnbohm's sense. Method: Qualitative data were collected using essay questions on three occasions: First week and last semester at the Occupational Therapy Programme at the School of Health Sciences, Jönköping, Sweden, and after 3 years of occupational therapy practice. A content analysis of the collected materials was performed. Conclusion: The transformation of the informants'views could be characterised as comprising three different perspectives: A 'public'view in 1995, a 'theoretical' view in 1998 and an 'experiential/contextual' view in 2001. © 2006 The Authors Journal compilation © 2006 Australian Association of Occupational Therapists.
