Workers’ Comp Psychologist & Social Workers

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 or social worker 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)generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)panic disorder, and specific phobias, depression, sleep disorders, adjustment disorders, anger issues, psychosocial problems, relationship issues, caregiver distress, difficulty coping with disability, injury and chronic pain and problems dealing with loss and grief.

The team of New York State Licensed Workers’ Compensation Psychologists and Social Workers at Behavioral Medicine Associates (BMA) can help the injured worker learn to cope with and/or recover from these problems.  BMA provides this service as part of the injured worker’s workers’ compensation insurance program.

To treat these psychological or behavioral issues, the NY therapists at Behavioral Medicine 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.

BMA 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.

Behavioral Medicine Associates work together with your doctors and attorney to insure you receive the treatment you deserve.  We help you with the complex issues involved in pursuing a Workers’ Compensation claim and provide all the necessary reports, forms and testimony so you can benefit from the care necessary for recovery.

Behavioral Medicine Associates also provides neuropsychological evaluation and psychological evaluation of disability in workers’ compensation cases.

There is no reason to continue to suffer from the psychological effects of a workplace injury or illness.  Let us help you recover from stress, fear, anxiety, panic, phobias, depression and PTSD and learn to cope with chronic pain.  We have authorized workers’ compensation psychologists and social workers waiting to help you at one of our numerous offices located throughout the New York City Metropolitan Area (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx and Staten Island), Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk Counties), Westchester County (White Plains), Rockland County (Nanuet and Spring Valley), Orange County (Newburgh), Erie County (Buffalo), Niagara County (Niagara Falls) and Ulster County (Kingston and Middletown).
