Goal Setting for Success
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people become disabled due to injury or illness. Whether addressed in relation to personal, social or health care costs, chronic disability remains one of the most expensive health problems facing modern society. PGAP® was designed to prevent or reduce the severity of disability that can arise following injury or illness.
The primary goals of PGAP are to reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation progress, promote re-integration into life-role activities, increase quality of life, and facilitate return-to-work. These goals are achieved through targeted treatment of psychosocial risk factors, structured activity scheduling, graded-activity involvement, goal-setting, problem-solving, and motivational enhancement.
The treatment objectives of the PGAP® proceed from the view that return to work is the highest level of independence that can be offered to someone. It is currently the most researched risk-targeted intervention designed to reduce disability associated with debilitating chronic illness and mental health conditions.
PGAP® is considered to be one of the most cost effective approaches for reducing disability and fostering return to work in those with in those suffering from physical and mental health conditions, including chronic low back pain and fibromyalgia, as well as mental health conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
PGAP® is world renowned and is used by the Department of National Defence (DND) and Veteran Affairs Canada (VAC) to assist our military and servicemen and women suffering from any of the above such conditions.
