IPR allows participants to improve their ability to function at home, work, school, and in social environments. We assist participants in helping themselves by teaching them to focus on overcoming the disabling consequences of their illness and regain a valued role in the community.
IPR Services are provided by bachelors or masters-prepared clinicians that meet the state of Iowa accreditation standards for a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner.
Alegent Health IPR services are comprised of the following goal directed and time limited components:
Identifies the participant’s level of motivation and readiness to work with the IPR staff to set an overall rehabilitation goal that will make a significant change in their life.
During this phase, participants will increase their level of interest and motivation and eliminate hesitation of entering into the role recovery process. Self-understanding, recovery awareness, environmental awareness and support are the focus during this phase.
Assists participants in developing goals that will result in enhanced residential, educational, occupational or social arenas. Individuals define personal criteria that need to be met to ensure a successful outcome. Values clarification is an essential component during this phase.
Through a functional assessment, participants identify and then develop the skills, support, and other resources needed to successfully meet the social, emotional and intellectual requirements of their chosen role in society.
