Services
Goal Management Training (GMT) is an evidence-based cognitive rehabilitation program designed to help individuals with impairments in executive functioning to improve their planning and ability to achieve goals. The Website is a hub for therapists with GMT resources and also has patient-focused resources. Therapists may choose to register on a training platform and/or live training workshops (“Programs”) to equip therapists with the knowledge and resources required to run GMT through telemedicine.
Informational Purposes of the Website and the Programs
The Website and the Programs, including any text, information, pictures, videos, data and displays (collectively, the “Material”), is provided for informational purposes only.

The contributing authors and Baycrest make no representations or warranties, express or implied, that the Materials will result in the treatment, cure, or prevention of any illness or diseases. Always consult with your doctor or other qualified healthcare professional before beginning any fitness, diet or exercise program, or make any other lifestyle change; call 9-1-1 or go your nearest hospital emergency department if your situation is urgent. This Website and the Programs provide GMT tools to therapists but Baycrest is not responsible for confirming the licensing and credentials of any therapists who offer GMT.

GMT therapists should have experience in psychological or rehabilitation interventions. In our laboratories, GMT is run by occupational therapists or clinical psychologists. However, those with training and experience in psychology or allied health professionals may choose to run the intervention. They should also have, at a minimum, exposure to principles of mindfulness. Optimally, the therapist will have significant direct experience with individual and group mindfulness practice, either as a participant or a leader. The therapist should be versed in basic neuropsychological theory of executive control, working memory and frontal functions. You agree that you use this tool at your own risk.
