A collaborative team approach
Our occupational therapists and case managers have developed a broad network around the region and are able to work closely with other professionals in order to address physical, cognitive, and emotional needs in recovery from complex, traumatic injuries.
The occupational therapist is involved early in the process following a trauma, often from the time of hospital discharge. As the individual progresses, the occupational therapist remains involved to assist in successful achievement of functional goals for taking care of oneself, and remaining an active member in family, social, community, and workplace environments.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Our team is also experienced and trained in the management of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The symptoms of PTSD can cause significant levels of distress and disruption to an individual’s ability to function in their everyday lives. Occupational therapy assists in addressing barriers to participation through awareness of triggers and their warning signs, and to develop positive coping, health and wellness strategies such as stress management, relaxation techniques, activity planning and pacing for involvement in meaningful, purposeful activity.
