Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP)

What is PGAP?

The Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP) is a 10 week program aimed towards behavioural activation for those who are facing psychosocial risk factors impacting their recovery.

The PGAP program uses education to promote self management of symptoms and helps clients return to activities that are meaningful to them. The client and therapist work together to create goals and realistic steps to achieve them.

When should the PGAP be used?

We encourage you to give us a call to discuss your specific situation, however generally a client may be approrpiate for the PGAP program if they are continuing to experience a high level of disability despite participating in traditional treatments already. They may be experiencing pain or a mental health condition as a primary barrier to participating in their daily activities or returning to work.

What happens during the PGAP?

The focus of the program is education about symptoms, the importance of activity and how to gradually incorporate more activities into a client's daily routine. An activity log is used and the therapist will spend time helping the client schedule in daily activities in a manner that is appropriate based on their symptoms and activity tolerances. Another key component is a walking program.
