Research Profile

Jeanne Jackson

Biography

Jeanne Jackson received her Bachelors of Science in Occupational Therapy with a minor in psychology from San Jose State University and her Masters of Arts in Occupational Therapy from the University of Southern California, both in the United States. She then received her PhD. in Occupational Science at the University of Southern California with a certificate in Women’s studies.

Following her qualification in occupational therapy Jeanne worked at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center with people who had chronic back pain and people with neurological disorders. She also co-developed and managed an Occupational Therapy Independent Living Skills Programs for adolescents with physical, emotional, communication and/or learning disabilities in an integrated high school setting and for adolescence with intellectual disabilities in a self- contained high school. Jeanne has extensive experience working with well older adults. She co-developed and managed the occupational science and occupational therapy based Lifestyle Redesign® program as part of a research grant (see research interests).

Jeanne was an associate professor in the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at the University of Southern California for approximately 20 years. She taught a range of courses including theoretical courses in occupational science and practical courses in occupational therapy at the professional and post-professional level; was engaged in multiple grants; directed the Occupational Therapy Doctorate; and develop innovate practices.

In 2011 she was appointed Professor and Head of the Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Program at University College Cork.

Jeanne is also a Board member of ISS21 and a member of the steering committee of ISS21 Aging Cluster.

Research Interests

The overarching theme that drives my research is my belief that people create meaningful lives through their choice of occupations and the symbolic interpretations with which they imbue those occupations. I am particularly interested in understanding how diverse groups of people who may not fit within the particular social-historical constraints of their communities (i.e.: people who are disable, lesbian, older or poor) struggle to live out their personal vision of a meaningful life. Furthermore I believe that living a meaningful existence is essential to both health and life satisfaction. My intent is to translate conceptual ideas into innovative practices that meet the needs of all clients in the changing health care system.

Jeanne has participated in a number of funded and non-funded research projects. She was an investigator on the “Effectiveness of two occupational therapy treatment for the elderly” funded by the National Institute of Aging and the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation in USA. She was co-investigator on the “Health Mediating Factors of the Well Elderly Program” funded by the National Institute on Aging, USA. Both grants resulted in the development of Lifestyle Redesign® an occupational therapy program and demonstrated the efficacy and effectiveness of this intervention. She was co-principle investigator on “Daily Living Context and Pressure Sored in Consumers with Spinal Injuries” funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research which addressed the relationship between lifestyle patterns, daily routines and the environmental context to the development of pressure sores in people with spinal cord injuries. This in depth qualitative study of 20 people with spinal cord injuries and pressure sores laid the groundwork for the development of a Lifestyle Redesign® intervention to prevent pressure sores in this population.

Jeanne’s second line of research addresses how diverse lifestyles are expressed through occupation. Specifically, she studied how lesbians with and without disabilities weave together their lesbian identities and occupations. The experiences of lesbians as they lived out their daily activities were a central focus of this study and the vantage point from which an analysis of the relationship of personal ideologies and structural elements to daily activity were made. Furthermore patient’s perceptions about the extent to which hospitals and clinics are conducive or hinder appropriate therapy for people who are lesbian gay or bisexual were studied. The results suggested that heterosexism pervaded health care hospitals and clinics through subtle practices such as heterosexual discourse, homophobic comments, assumed heterosexuality stereotyping and harassment.
