Research suggests that practitioners struggle to find simple, effective ways to address mental health issues in OT. This course combines the efficacy of 2 evidence-based strategies: the art of journaling and the psychology of Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) to offer a solution. Upon completion, practitioners will be able to access downloadable worksheets required to implement these strategies the very next day, into practice.

Dr. Aditi Mehra graduated with a bachelor's degree in occupational therapy from Western Michigan University and pursued her doctorate in health sciences at Midwestern University in Illinois. She has practiced as a pediatric OT for the past 23yrs in various settings. During her doctoral studies, Dr. Mehra also pursued a certification in behavior analysis to gain a better understanding of behavioral challenges in OT. Once she delved deeper into this field, Dr. Mehra discovered Fit Learning, an academic program that combines the science of building fluency and charting data to optimize learning. Once she realized the ease and profound effectiveness of this charting system, Dr. Mehra implemented this charting system in her own practice. This soon became her passion and she now offers classes and consultations to other professionals seeking to become more data-driven in their practice. She offers several data-based free resources on her website www.DrAdititheOT.com. Dr. Mehra is the director of 2 Fit learning labs, she is also an adjunct professor at Elmhurst University and continues to work in the school setting as a pediatric OT.
