Work related injuries may result in emotional difficulty, particularly if the physical effects of that injury are pervasive and debilitating. At ForPsych, we have evaluated workers on behalf of both the worker and the employer and are also members of Ohio’s Disability Examination Panel. In addition to these evaluations, our sibling practice, Tabono Center for Wellbeing, provides individual counseling with the goal of returning the Injured Worker to the workforce. As most of us know, employment allows for more than just a paycheck. It gives us a sense of accomplishment, feeling that we are contributing to our family and our own development. We believe that employment should be the ultimate goal. Avenues to this goal involve increased pain management skills, the reduction of emotional difficulty, and the development of strong coping skills.
