The rehabilitation literature describes disconnects between what therapists claim to be client-centred therapy and client perceptions. Goal ownership is a simple process that can be incorporated into many clients’ therapeutic experience that provides for a more collaborative and client-centred approach to therapy by including clients in establishing and routinely revisiting client-owned goals. Using this approach was found to improve development of client autonomy, self-efficacy and self-management - each critical to enabling participation in client-identified occupations. This webinar will provide case studies examples and an outline of easy to follow methods for implementing this approach across clinical practice areas.
Presenter: Laura VanPuymbrouck
After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
1. Accurately explain the difference between traditional client-centred goal writing versus client “owned” goal writing.
2. Describe the underlying theoretical concepts for why client autonomy is supported by client-owned goal writing.
3. Have the knowledge base to initiate a client-owned goal writing intervention approach into a clinical practice.
