    Abstract

    This is the second of two articles describing a reflective analysis of the Occupational Profiles published in the Journal of Occupational Science. The reasons for undertaking this analytical task were to inform us about the nature of occupation and the qualities of the occupational being, to stimulate dialogue and further in‐depth research in the area of occupational narratives and to chart new directions for the Occupational Profiles. Occupational themes of meaning embedded in the collective narrative data were identified through a process of immersion, open coding and reduction. They are presented for consideration, and to invigorate further research under the larger headings of persona, environment, engagement and outcomes. The primary recommendation for future profiles is that they be more inclusive to reflect the occupational realities of a broader section of the community.
