This scoping review analyzed OT practice in justice-based systems as depicted in 140 sources appearing in publications between 1943 and 2019. This analysis may inform students, practitioners, and researchers and support efforts to define a distinct role for OTs in justice-based systems. Results may help define competencies or practice guidelines and inform the development of practices, programs, and research addressing the needs of individuals involved in the criminal justice system.
