Upcoming Event

Keynote speaker

Dr. Barry Trentham

Academic Coordinator, Mississauga Campus (UTM) and Assistant Professor
Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy

Dr. Barry Trentham began his occupational therapy career over 35 years ago following graduation from the University of Alberta (BScOT) and has practiced in a variety of clinical settings including seniors’ rehabilitation, complex continuing and long-term care, as well as mental health and community health promotion venues. He returned to graduate school in 1997 and completed a Master (York University) and a PhD in 2010 (University of Toronto/Ontario Institute for Studies in Education). His teaching and research interests have focused on the intersections that link the social determinants of healthy aging, social inequities and occupational participation. His questions are framed within an understanding of occupational transitions across the life course and examined primarily through critical qualitative methodologies including narrative, arts-informed life histories, and participatory methods. His research aims to better understand the processes that shape participation in home and community life. Most recently, he has been engaged in efforts to develop more inclusive and anti-oppressive teaching and learning practices within occupational therapy education. Examples of his scholarly work include questions around senior citizenship and ageism, student engagement in peer intersectional dialogue and profiling occupational therapy contributions to supporting later life course occupational transitions.

The first Anne Lang Étienne Memorial lecture, which was held by videoconference on July 31,  2020, was a great success. Keynote speaker Dr. Rachel Thibault addressed resilience as well as the five transformative activities that bring meaning and well-being.

The event enabled occupational therapists, professionals, students and members of the University of Ottawa's occupational therapy program to come together and commemorate the values and vision of Anne Lang-Étienne.
