What are the potentials of group occupations for adult asylum seekers?
The article uses the scoping studies approach to explore the current literature on group occupation with adult asylum seekers. Two research questions related to this topic are addressed: whether group occupation has the potential to promote occupational engagement, and whether it is meaningful for adult asylum seekers. In order to answer these questions, we referred to the Canadian model of occupational performance and engagement (CMOP-E) and its description of the interaction between environment, group occupations and asylum seekers. We conclude that group occupation both promotes occupational engagement and is meaningful for the participants, as the group is a regular occupation which provides relevant activities, a place to learn, create social bonds, experience happiness and a sense of being understood.
