1. Participants will be able to identify the historical milestones of the development of the Connecticut Worker's Compensation Commission psychological pain assessment and treatment protocols.
2. Participants will be able to identify the Commission's conception of pain, premium on the biopsychosocial approach and utility of psychological/neuropsychological procedures.
3. Participants will be able to identify the diagnostic framework for all 4 levels of the protocols.
As a result of a 15 year effort the Connecticut Worker's Compensation Commission has formally adopted protocols for Psychological Pain Assessment and Treatment. These reflect a growing awareness on the part of the Commission and physicians on the Medical Advisory Panel regarding the critical importance of the application of a biopsychosocial model to injured workers in general and evaluation and treatment of chronic pain in particular. This workshop is designed to specifically prepare and empower Connecticut licensed psychologists to effectively take advantage of this opportunity to make a meaningful difference for injured Connecticut workers, the Commission, and participate in this rapidly growing practice opportunity. The workshop is primarily focused on specific and practical training to prepare psychologists to understand and apply the protocols at a practical level with extensive elaboration of the protocols published description. Participants are encouraged to bring case example for specific discussion and coaching.
