Introduction: Studies into the mutual understanding between clients and occupational therapists have typically explored client and occupational therapist experiences separately. The aim of this study is to explore the processes of how clients and occupational therapists mutually understand the enablement of clients' daily life in convalescent rehabilitation. Methods: This qualitative research used a narrative-in-action method. Three pairs of clients and occupational therapists were separately interviewed preceding and following observation of an occupational therapy session. Three date-gatherings were conducted, one month apart in the last two months until hospital discharge, consisting of unstructured with open-ended questions and participant observations. Date-analysis was a thematic narrative analysis. One narrative composed of possible plots was then created to explain the process of creating mutual understanding between each client and occupational therapist. Results: Comparison among the three narratives let to identifying three common plots that express how mutual understanding emerges and disappears: Their ideas on enablement of clients' daily life waver by unexpected things happening, mutually adjusting goals in order to enhance trusting relationships, understanding each other through sharing experience. Discussion: These findings suggest that clients have a stake in and actively contribute to building trusting relationships, the importance of occupational experiences, the necessity to flexibly practice occupational therapy to unexpected things, and that the occupational therapy as a process of developing mutual understanding is iterative and non-linear.
