Objective. Often researchers and clinicians in the profession of occupational therapy have used measures of locus of control to assess personal causation. The validity of this practice is questioned. Therefore, the constructs of locus of control, personal causation, and occupational functioning are explored with implications for theory and practice within the field of occupational therapy. Since these are constructs introduced into the profession of occupational therapy through the Model of Human Occupation, implications for theory and practice within this model are particularly discussed.
