Dr. Mullaney is the founding program director for the Masters of Occupational Therapy Program at Tennessee Wesleyan University in Knoxville, TN. He has been an Occupational Therapist for 17 years and in higher education at various colleges and universities starting OT Programs, teaching occupational therapy, and teaching in MBA Programs for the past 10 years. His previous CCSA course was similar, but focused on the Ways of Life in Ireland during the summer of 2016. Students from many areas of study benefited from the understanding of human preferences, upbringing, occupations, motivations, political influences, occupational performance, roles and routines, activities of daily living, and unique cultures- all which will prove to be beneficial in the real-world when interacting, helping, and possibly healing others.
