Example text

It is for this reason that we need to be thinking and debating more about how we may quantify and define it. As a starting point for this discussion, we will conceptualise work in a broad and inclusive way. To this end, we may identify four different forms of work: 1. 2. 3. 4. paid work unpaid work hidden work substitute work. PAID WORK This first category is the most common form of activity to be associated with work. Paid work may include some form of employment or a job, but can also extend to those who are self-employed (Brown, 1997).

In common with some forms of paid employment, this lack of flexibility may lead to role conflict. For example, the mature student who has to juggle attending lectures alongside collecting children from school, or the young student living away from home for the first time, who is forced to learn new life skills such as budgeting or cooking, in addition to making the transitions from school to college or university. These conflicts and issues may be minimised by ensuring strong social support systems are in place (Campaniello, 1988).

Participation in meaningful occupations provides a sense of satisfaction and purpose. A balance of occupations, which includes productive activities, is considered to be an essential pre-requisite of health (Farnworth, 1995), and it is this very personal, very individual, balance which needs to be stressed. The centrality, or importance, of work will vary between individuals. It may also change across a person’s lifespan and the onset of a disability later in life may act as a catalyst for a re-evaluation of an individual’s occupational priorities.
