Abstract This paper introduces a new clinical practice framework - the psychospiritual integration frame of reference. It opens with a broad discussion on spirituality as articulated within occupational therapy and occupational science literature, followed by a brief introduction into the framework's paradigm and interdisciplinary knowledge base. A general description of the frame of reference's major constructs and principles, as well as theoretical arguments concerning order, disorder, and the model;s dynamics, are presented and discussed. The psychospiritual integration frame of reference is offered as a contribution to the existing collection of practice frameworks drawn upon by occupational therapists in their day-to-day work.
