This paper presents the results of a qualitative study conducted in Quebec, Canada, with occupational therapists working in mental health. Data were gathered through self-reported narratives of four occupational therapists over the 2 years it took to implement the Remotivation Process (de las Heras, Llerena, & Kielhofner, 2003) and develop a research protocol. Through the descriptive analysis of their narratives, the positive changes this intervention approach had on clients and on occupational therapy practice are highlighted. The experience of the therapists in developing a research protocol is addressed. Finally, the research protocol evaluating the effect of the Remotivation Process on the recovery process of people with depression is presented.
