Goal Management Training Workshop

Thursday, October 18th from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM (EDT) located at the Baycrest Centre in Toronto, Ontario. This workshop led by Dr. Brian Levine will provide the latest clinical-scientific information concerning the assessment of executive functions and evidence-based rehabilitation with Goal Management Training® (GMT). To register, click here.

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.

Those using GMT clinically should attend both the morning and afternoon sessions to learn the background and practical aspects of administering the intervention. The afternoon session is optional for clinicians, researchers, and trainees seeking to improve knowledge about executive functioning assessment and rehabilitation but who don't intend to administer GMT.

Who should attend

  • 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)

  • Researchers studying executive functioning in healthy people or people with brain or mental health disorders

  • Clinical or research trainees and students

Prerequisites

Knowledge of basic brain anatomy is useful, but not required.
