Were you injured at work or on the job and are experiencing psychological problems such as stress, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, PTSD or panic?
If so, you may be entitled to psychological treatment with a workers’ compensation psychologist as part of the NY Workers’ Compensation Program. Workers’ compensation also known as workers’ comp or workman’s compensation provides medical and/or psychological treatment to workers who have suffered job related injuries, accidents, disease or illnesses such as slip and falls, trauma and head injury. These workplace injuries may result in psychological or “behavioral” issues that require treatment.
Some of these psychological problems include fear, stress, anxiety disorders (such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, and specific phobias), depression, sleep disorders, adjustment disorders, anger issues, psychosocial problems, relationship issues, caregiver distress, difficulty coping with disability, injury with chronic pain as well as along with loss and grief.
At South Shore Counseling & Psychological Services (SSCPS), our team of Workers’ Compensation/No-Fault highly trained counselors help the injured worker learn to cope with and/or recover from these problems as part of our injured worker’s "Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program."
To treat these psychological or behavioral issues, the psychologists and therapists at SSCPS utilize techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), desensitization, exposure therapy, self-instructional training, relaxation training, meditation, mindfulness training and psychosocial support. These treatments provide skills and concrete behavioral techniques that can be used to regain behavioral and emotional functioning. SSCPS is dedicated to providing the injured worker with the most effective program of care. Helping an injured man or woman return to work, enabling them to maintain their dignity and sense of self-respect, is one of our most important missions.
