Meaningful Occupations as protective factors in times of crisis

Ursula Costa looked into the interrelated connection between self, identity and occupations. Thereby meaningful occupations are protective factors for the self when facing transitions or crisis.

It matters why we choose an occupation, how we engage, when and in which occupations we engage, where they take place and with whom we relate to, when engaging in occupations. – Thus, stated Costa; what, how and why we do something expresses, shapes, and develops who we are.
