Progressive Goal Attainment Program
A certified PGAP Rehabilitation Professional evaluates the person’s readiness and willingness to participate in a structured goal oriented 10 week program. Individualized rehabilitation goals are achieved through targeted treatment of psychosocial risk factors, structured activity scheduling, graded-activity involvement, goal-setting, problem-solving, and motivational enhancement.
The initial weeks of the program will focus on the development of a structured activity schedule, best suited to the person resuming activities that have been adversely impacted by injury or illness. Activity goals are established in order to promote resumption of family, social and occupational roles. Intervention techniques are invoked to target specific obstacles to rehabilitation progress (e.g. fear of symptom exacerbation, catastrophic thinking, perceived injustice and disability beliefs). In the final stages of the program, the intervention focuses on activities that will facilitate re-integration into the workplace.
