Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP)
CAC staff have completed certified training in the effective facilitation of PGAP®. PGAP is an evidence-based program targeting psycho-social barriers to recovery and rehabilitation for clients suffering from debilitating health or mental health conditions.
The PGAP is an empirically supported intervention shown to reduce disability and contribute to successful return-to-work in individuals with back pain, whiplash, fibromyalgia, cancer, depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
A brief video outlining PGAP can be viewed here:
The application of PGAP has been embraced by many large organisations, workers compensation authorities, and life insurance agencies across the world, including throughout North America, and more recently in Australia.
A more detailed video, which explains the research and evidence behind the effectiveness of PGAP in supporting recovery, can be viewed here.
