PGAP™

This program can best be described as a "Life Role Re-Integration" program/ As individuals become disabled due to an injury or debilitating illness, they abandon their involvement in many important activities of their lives. Many of these activities previously made up various life roles that defined the person's sense of identify and self-worth. Some of these activities are abandoned because of significant functional limitations, or psychosocial factors such as fears, loss of confidence and a pessimistic outlook of their lives. By targeting the psychosocial factors that are contributing to disability, PGAP™ can assist individuals resume participation in activities that once gave their life a sense of meaning and purpose. Resumption of occupational activities is a central objective of PGAP™.
