Fostering Creativity in Rehabilitation $215.00
Editors: Matthew J. Taylor (Matthew J. Taylor Institute, Scottsdale, AZ)
Book Description:
The rehabilitation professions are under pressure to innovate in order to deliver services to a growing market of increasingly savvy consumers. These consumers are no longer limited to their conventional care choices and have access to quality online resources for many of their needs. Rehabilitation professionals’ pressures are compounded by increased productivity demands, technical information overload, and increasing risks for professional burnout. In short, rehabilitation is in need of rehabilitation in order to transition into the next generation of health care delivery.

Unfortunately innovation and creativity have not been, nor are they now, in the curriculums of these professions. The schools continue to churn out graduates doing what has been done before, and current providers are admonished by their professional organizations to practice only what has high level research evidence to support the practice. Meanwhile, veteran professionals as both employees and owners find themselves faced with the acute need to innovate in order to survive and flourish. This book fills the critical void in knowledge and application of how to best transform both the individual and the organizations that are responsible for professional practice, education, and policy.

The book begins by examining the emerging science behind individual and organizational creativity, along the way dispelling many myths such as that of the lone genius. Grounded in that context, creativity is described in its role as the hallmark of both clinical mastery and patient values within a practice of evidence-based medicine. A candid description of why rehabilitation professions have been slow to innovate further supports how both individuals and organizations (schools, state, and national organizations, etc.) can begin the necessary transformations. Such transformations would not only solve acute situational stressors, but the book also shares how such changes are critical for developing systemic sustainability for everyone from the one-person professional practice to the largest organizations.

Challenges specific to each rehabilitation profession are then described within case reports from most of the rehabilitation professions. The reports demonstrate how a colleague of that profession has overcome those challenges in a manner that offers real world examples for applying the relevant principles. The book closes with a workbook-like breakout of chapters on taking action to create both personal and organizational novel expressions of our respective vocational call to ease the suffering of others. Working through these practical exercises will allow for the emergence of our patients’, our personal, and our professions’ best possible futures. (Imprint: Nova)

Book Reviews

"If you work in rehabilitation, the best parts of Fostering Creativity in Rehabilitation may just blow your mind. It fills a great unarticulated need among practitioners hungry for a way to reconnect their work to their own lives and to their patients. Several chapters effectively lay out the current problems within rehabilitation, and frame those as a lack of creativity. Excellent chapters follow focusing on fostering creativity of the self, systems, and within the direct interactions of rehabilitation specialist and patient/client. The most touching and direct chapter may be the one by Matthew Sanford who asks that care givers expand their consciousness to consider mind body awareness as central to care as the physical body. The book can be a heavy lift occasionally when it approaches the material most academically using excessive detail and philosophy in a way which feels like an exercise in thoroughness rather than clarity. But this happens rarely. The most rewarding chapters, of which there are many, are those which offer concrete ways to alter behavior and to move forward into greater creativity. Matthew Taylor and the other authors are ahead of the game here. They have seen a real problem and are offering creative solutions." - Marshall Hagins, PT, PhD, DPT, OCS, Professor of Physical Therapy, Long Island University NY, USA
