A novel intervention to increase leisure, social and community activity after brain injury; the Programme for Engagement, Participation and Activities (PEPA)

This one hour webinar is presented by Prof Robyn Tate. This webinar can be watched live via Zoom on Monday 9th March or can be purchased to be viewed later on demand.

Synopsis: This 60-minute webinar describes a novel intervention to address problems of diminished activity levels experienced by many people with severe impairment after brain injury. The Programme for Engagement, Participation and Activities (PEPA; Tate et al., 2019) is a goal-directed, individually-based intervention. It was designed for people with substantial functional disability who are generally not able to engage in ongoing, open employment. The aim of the PEPA is to facilitate goal-directed behaviours to plan, implement, monitor, and problem solve around participation in leisure, social activities, and other meaningful occupation. The PEPA has been shown to be an efective intervention for people with severe traumatic brain injury (Tate et al., 2018).

This practical webinar draws upon the PEPA manual to guide the webinar delegate through the PEPA intervention. It describes the step-by-step procedure for implementing the three stages of the PEPA: set-up, implementation, and forward planning. This includes information on suitable assessment instruments to measure activity and participation, formulation of individually-tailored goals, ways of measuring progress on goals, the session structure for the implementation phase, and strategies used in the PEPA. The webinar concludes with case illustrations.

Webinar outcomes: At the end of this webinar, delegates will have knowledge of:

1) the types of assessment instruments suitable to measure activity and participation

2) principles of goal setting in the PEPA and use of goal attainment scaling

3) methods of recording performance towards goals

4) strategies used in the implementation phase to facilitate goal-directed behaviour

Target Audience: occupational therapists, clinical/neuropsychologists, recreation/diversional therapists, social workers, nurses, rehabilitation councellors, case managers.
