Interpretive phenomenological research gathered metaphors summarizing OTs lived experiences of effective OT. Data analysis identified themes of obstruction and flow; learning and growth; creative complexity; containment; and emotions and embodiment. The Rollercoaster Ride: a summative metaphor, encapsulates an occupational perspective of health. It aims to improve children’s participation by finding more effective interventions to address the negative impacts of emotional influences.
