About this Event

Goal Management Training® Workshop

Executive or frontal lobe functions mediate the control, direction, and regulation of cognitive and mental processes. These skills are affected in conditions such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, multiple sclerosis, and psychiatric disorders. This workshop will provide the latest clinical-scientific information concerning the assessment of executive functions and their evidence-based rehabilitation with Goal Management Training® (GMT). The workshop will be led by  Dr. Brian Levine, primary developer of GMT, clinical neuropsychologist, and senior scientist at the Rotman Research Institute.

In the morning session, Dr. Levine will review the neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience of executive functions, including psychological and neuroanatomical background, neuroimaging findings, diagnostic considerations, and clinical assessment. Although grounded in neuroscience theory, the emphasis will be applied, with use of clinical cases. The afternoon session will consist of an interactive train-the-trainer session for GMT, including a presentation on GMT for telemedicine, co-facilitated by Charlene O'Connor (Homewood Health) and Dr. Susan Vandermorris (Baycrest).

  • Allied health professionals involved in clinical assessment and treatment of patients with brain or mental health disorders (e.g., nurses, physicians, psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, case managers)
