Occupational therapists, psychologists, social scientists, and other contributors explore the concept of life balance, which has been around since at least ancient Greece but has not been clearly defined in the modern helping professions. They look at life balance in context, measuring it, conceptualizing it, life balance for specific populations, and future research. Among specific topics are an inductive approach to optimal lifestyle mix, aspects of daily occupations that promote life balance among women in Sweden, living in integrity with values, and myth versus reality of the hurried child. The 17 papers are from an April 2007 conference in Kingston, Ontario.
