What is Broad Theory specificity to a population? Give all examples of Broad Theories, there are 4. NO specificity-could be used for multiple people/groups Examples: MOHO (model of human occupation), OA (occupational adaptation), PEO (person environment occupation), EHP (ecology of human performance) PEOP (person environment occupation performance)
Definition of Discrete Theory, what does it explain? Definition: Scientifically based innervation It explains * how to do---- initial evaluation, measure outcomes, design treatment intervention, * See how change occurs (in relation syndrome,illness, etc *Which assessments to use

Who created GST? What did he oppose? Von Bertalanffy 1968 The idea of reductionism (from early medical model)
Name and describe the 3 components of systems theory? Open system`s: constant interchange of information, energies, and materials with one’s environment Dynamic: constant motion, constant change (depending on various input) System = “An entity that is greater than the sum of its parts
Difference between hierarchy and heterarchy Hierarchy: Directional organization of concepts (linear) Heterarchy: not linear, different units reorganize themselves according to the challenge or task at hand
What is complex systems theory? Emerged from general systems theory as an approach to describe complex systems’ dynamics such as emergence, adaptation, and self-organization
What is chaos theory? Chaos theory: emerged as an approach to describe multiple variables and their unpredictability.
What are the bases of MOHO- Model of Human Occupation? Humans biologically mandated to be active Thinking /feeling /doing are influenced by a dynamic interaction between one’s internal components and the environment The human is an open system
Is MOHO considered a hierarchy or heterarchy? Heterarchy- non linear, parts of system will interact depending on situation
Is MOHO a broad or discrete theory? Predominantly broad theory -It gives guidance for our practice, including many developmental assessments -Many OT’s use MOHO as a discrete theory or a frame of reference because of the assessments it provides
