Summary :

The “Guide du diagnostic en ergothérapie” (“Occupational diagnosis guideline”) published in 2017 is intended to standardize the occupational therapist’s analysis process using a top-down approach. Our preliminary theoretical research has allowed us to determine that one of the causes of the identity confusion that reigns among occupational therapists is the abandonment of occupation for a biomedical approach. To date, no study has questioned the impact of “occupational diagnosis” on the occupational therapist’s professional identity. In this article, we wanted to determine how “occupational diagnosis” promotes recognition by other professionals of an occupational therapist’s professional identity. The objectives were to establish its effect on the construction of occupational therapists’ identity and to assess its influence on multidisciplinary relationships. Thus, using a qualitative approach and semi-directed interviews, we questioned four occupational therapists practicing in France and using the “occupational diagnosis”. The results indicate that this tool is a facilitator both in the identity process and in professional relationships despite paradoxes emerging from the participants’ discourse.
