Nick Pollard

Senior Lecturer


Summary

I am professional lead in occupational therapy, vocational rehabilitation and dietetics. I enjoy teaching about social contexts for occupational therapy and community based interventions.

I have been able to write and present extensively on community based rehabilitation and on critical explorations of occupational therapy.

About

I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2003. I worked in severe and enduring mental health settings. My previous role was part time senior occupational therapist and part time research co-ordinator at Doncaster and South Humber NHS.

I obtained my diploma in occupational therapy in 1991, MA in psychiatry, philosophy and society in 1996, MSc in occupational therapy in 2001 and doctorate in 2014.

I have coedited several landmark occupational therapy texts, notably the Occupational Therapy without Borders books, the most recent edition in 2016.

Specialist areas of interest

Long term mental health and occupation; community approaches to health through occupational engagements; autobiographical narrative in the context of community publication and adult literacy as 'occupational narrative' and what this can tell us about meaningfulness; the relationship between this lived experience and a political understanding of occupation; and related to this, the exploration of aspects of 'doing, being, becoming and belonging' - exploring plastic modelling and the activities around this as an example

Nick Pollard teaches occupational therapy students at undergraduate and post graduate level. Most of his teaching concerns social contexts for occupational therapy and community based interventions; he also teaches research methods and is on the placement team. His MA explored internal migration and mental health; his MSc explored occupations in creative writing groups, and his PhD the political implied in occupational therapy. He has written and presented extensively on community based rehabilitation and on critical explorations of occupational therapy.

Nick joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2003. He worked in severe and enduring mental health settings and his previous role was part time senior occupational therapist and part time research co-ordinator at Doncaster and South Humber NHS. He obtained his diploma in occupational therapy in 1991, an MA in psychiatry, philosophy and society in 1996, his MSc in occupational therapy in 2001 and his doctorate in 2014.

Nick has coedited several landmark occupational therapy texts, notably the internationally renowned Occupational Therapy without Borders books, with a new edition planned for 2016/17.
