Back on Track is a structured, goal-oriented rehabilitation program that focuses on the development of mental health resilience to assist in returning to an optimum level of function.
The rehabilitation process uses activity scheduling, programming tasks, routine planning and skills development. This includes learning about anxiety, stress and sleep management, as well as concepts such as self esteem, anger management and assertive communication.
Back on Track can assist to change unhelpful thought patterns and behaviours. All our Occupational Therapists are trained in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, interpersonal therapy, learning theory and pain management.
Upon approval to proceed with the rehabilitation plan, regular consultations will be undertaken during which the identified functions requiring attention will be addressed with particular focus on their affect on the following skills:
Work and productivity skills empower the individual to practice and develop skills that enable them to return to work and/or engage in retraining.
Life skills facilitate enhancement of the individual’s independence in managing daily tasks and the prevention of relapse.
Leisure and recreation skills provide opportunities to engage in a range of options to develop interests that can be undertaken independently in the community.
Social skills underpin the ability to progress in all of the above areas and provides increased confidence to relate with others effectively in a range of settings.
A mid-rehabilitation report is provided to the case manager detailing progress achieved. The assessment tools used in the initial assessment are re-applied enabling measurement of progress to be reported.
Following rehabilitation cessation, a closure report is generated, again using the same assessment tools to enable measurement of progress to be ascertained.
