In Engelhardt’s words, we are, in effect, “wooing meaning” (p. 141), for, as he further states, “it is only within a context of meaning that treatment can take place” (p. 142). In creating a context of meaning, we are both wooers of meaning and meaning-givers; we seek to elicit and discover the meanings of the situation and we offer occupation as a way to respond to those meanings and to help create new meaning. Thought of in this way, occupation becomes, by definition, the vehicle for creating meaning in the occupational therapy context of care, and occupational therapists become, as Engelhardt has said, custodians of meaning.
