Job Description for Licensed Registered Occupational Therapist

License registered occupational therapists work extensively with others to motivate them and promote healthy lifestyles. They work with clients in a range of health care settings to aid their physical, mental, and social disabilities which restrict them in daily life.

This job requires both mental and physical effort to work with those who may have mental illnesses. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages and must be able to keep an open mind and a positive attitude, as some responsibilities may include mentoring people on how to improve their lives, teaching anxiety management, and teaching people how to cope with everyday struggles. Occupational therapists work both indoors to create plans and ideas for their patients, and outside to help them become more comfortable in the outside world.

A bachelor's degree with years of training and experience in a health care setting are generally required for this position. Licensed registered occupational therapists typically work full-time during weekly business hours, though this can vary depending on the employer, and they must be able to empathize with others and maintain the passion to help them live comfortable and healthy lives in what is often a physically and mentally demanding position.
