Psychological Counseling is available to assist injured workers in addressing issues arising from their injury that have added distress, so they do not pose barriers to recovery from their injury. These issues might include financial hardship, loss of independence, pain, domestic challenges, sleep disturbance, and fear. In short-term counseling, a licensed psychologist or clinical social worker will help the injured worker understand and cope with these difficulties – in either a private/one-on-one or group setting. Cognitive behavioral therapy provides a theoretical framework for counseling. In cases of traumatic injury, specialized treatment strategies can be used to help the injured worker overcome emotional sequalae of the trauma and be prepared to resume gainful employment.
