Preventing Delayed Recovery Using PGAP

An Evidence-Based Treatment Program for Reducing Disability Associated with Pain, Depression, PTSD, Cancer Survivorship and other Chronic Health Conditions.

PGAP is considered one of the most empirically supported interventions for targeting psychosocial risk factors for disability. Reducing disability-relevant psychosocial risk factors has been shown

to promote recovery, improve quality of life and increase return to work outcomes. PGAP is  an intervention referred to as ‘Risk-Targeted Behavioural Activation’. Behavioural Activation is

supplemented by risk-targeted techniques such as education, guided disclosure, validation, goal setting, thought monitoring and re-appraisal, belief challenge and structured activity planning.

This workshop is designed to equip rehabilitation professionals with skills in psychosocial intervention strategies such that they may be better able to assist their clients in overcoming the challenges associated with debilitating health/mental health conditions. Numerous clinical trials have supported the use of PGAP for improving occupational outcomes in individuals with a wide range of debilitating health and mental health conditions including low back pain, whiplash, fibromyalgia, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. PGAP has been included in the Official Disability Guidelines (Work Loss Institute) as an evidence-based intervention for managing risk for prolonged disability.
