Driving through an intersection on her way to work, lifestyle health coach, Paula Franetti, was blindsided by an oncoming car with such impact that her car nearly folded in two. With catastrophic injuries and multiple sites of internal bleeding, Paula’s odds of surviving were questionable. Rushed to a Division 1 trauma center, Paula received top-notch medical care that saved her life. But would superior medical care and the support of family and friends be enough to return her to the active lifestyle she cherished? During the ups and downs of her lengthy healing journey, Paula came to understand the difference between general healing outcomes and becoming well. Through trial and error, she discovered six principles that enabled her body, mind, and spirit to heal beyond expectations and reach the level of wellbeing she desired. In this captivating book of vulnerable self-discovery, Paula shares the transformative power these principles can have for anyone recovering from an injury, related surgery, or even illness.

The mind/body/spirit concept in Driving Force supports the essence of Occupational Therapy. Chapter 6 provides excellent insight into the compliance/noncompliance tension in the use of adaptive equipment. As an Occupational Therapist, these six principles are a critical part of any therapeutic intervention.
