Models: CMOP and MOHO

I seem to have gathered a little bit of attention with these, so I thought I’d share them if anyone else would find them useful.


The Canadian Model of Occupational Performance (CMOP)

From the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists



The Model of Human Occupation (MOHO)

Originally by Dr. Gary Kielhofner (1980), now under the domain of the MOHO Clearinghouse.

This model didn’t really have a single, easy-to-depict diagram, so I made one!

The image of the girl came from Everything else was made in MS Word by myself, though I want to make sure that it’s clear that I take no credit for the concepts, just putting them into images so that I can use them to study! (I really do hope it’s ok to share these, but if not, I will absolutely delete this post.)

  1. Hi there! I’m an occupational therapy student from Singapore, currently in my final year of my Honour programme. Interestingly, I’m having a tutorial tomorrow aimed at discussions comparing the theoretical constructs of MOHO and CMOP-E… and I stumbled upon your blog!

    Interesting read you have here (:

  2. Kudos! Best MOHO diagram yet. Much better than the puke orange drawings in Kielhofner’s book. Your picture actually imparts some coherence to an otherwise unintelligible mess of a theory.

So what do you think?
