(2023) Session 14: Karina Sanson-Fisher


About Karina

I am an occupational therapist in Mulubinba (Newcastle), Australia. My practice area is alcohol and other drugs, with a particular interest in harm reduction.  I work in public health, and in my own private practice where I see people with co-occurring mental health and alcohol and other drug challenges. I also create resources and illustrate concepts from occupational therapy, mental health, and alcohol and other drug use, and share them on instagram (@doing.therapy).


Session title

Doing Drugs: Occupational therapy and alcohol and other drugs


Session details

This session explores an occupational therapy role working with people who use alcohol and other drugs, and provides my own experiences of finding and maintaining occupationally focussed practice in this space.
