Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP)
Our specially trained therapists can administer the PGAP, a 10 week standardized evidence-based intervention program for reducing disability associated with pain, depression, cancer and other chronic health conditions.
PGAP aims to reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation progress, promote re-integration into life-role activities, increase quality of life, and facilitate return-to-work. This is achieved through targeted treatment of psychosocial risk factors, structured activity scheduling, graded-activity involvement, goal-setting, problem-solving, and motivational enhancement. The PGAP has been shown to be effective in facilitating return to work in individuals with musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (pgapworks.com).
