Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAPTM)

The PGAP is an evidence-based treatment program for reducing disability associated with pain, depression, cancer and other chronic health conditions.

PGAP is a 10-week intervention program that is aimed to reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation progress, promote re-integration into life-role activities, increase quality of life and facilitate a return to work.

How Are These Goals Achieved?

  • Targeted treatment of psychosocial risk factors
  • Structured activity scheduling to assist the client in resuming activities that have been adversely impacted by injury or illness.
  • Graded-activity involvement
  • Goal setting to promote resumption of family, social and occupational roles.
  • Problem-solving Intervention techniques are invoked to target specific obstacles to rehabilitation progress (e.g. fear of symptom exacerbation, catastrophic thinking, perceived injustice and disability beliefs).
  • Motivational enhancement
  • In the final stages of the Program, the intervention focuses on activities that will facilitate re-integration into the workplace.
