Progressive Goal Attainment Program™
Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP™)
What is PGAP™ ?
The primary goal of Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP™) is to reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation progress, promote re-integration into daily life activities, increase quality of life and facilitate a return to work. Its goals are achieved via structured activity scheduling, graded-activity involvement, goal setting, problem solving, achievement tracking and motivational support.
Why PGAP™ ?
The Official Disability Guideline (ODG) consistently recommends a psychosocial rehabilitation approach for delayed recovery clients. PGAP™ consistently demonstrates reduced medical expenditures of 50% within the first 12 months and reduced time loss due to increased return-to-work rates (Chronic to Early Intervention rates are 45-86%). Further more, organizations such as the American College of Occupational & Environmental Medicine and the Social Security and Veterans Administration have recognized PGAP™ as a treatment guideline for individuals experiencing psychosocial barriers related to returning to work.
Who should participate in PGAP™ ?
PGAP™ is appropriate for many individuals who are occupationally disabled due to illness or injury and are experiencing delayed recovery beyond established treatment guidelines. Whether the individual has been disabled for 4 weeks or for multiple years, PGAP™ delivers a standardized cost effective way to approach occupational disability intervention.
Who are our PGAP™ consultants?
