An Evidence-Based Treatment Program for Reducing Disability Associated with Pain, Depression, Cancer and other Chronic Health Conditions
Date: June 21&22, 2013 - Richmond, British Columbia
Evidence-based practice is quickly becoming the expected standard for rehabilitation interventions. PGAP is considered one of the most empirically supported interventions for targeting psychosocial risk-factors for disability. This training workshop is designed to equip allied health 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 conditions. PGAP was designed to complement existing clinical services for the treatment of debilitating health/mental health conditions.
