Chronic Pain Understood

According to the 2019 National Health Interview Survey, 50.2 million adults (20.5%) reported experiencing pain most days or every day.

Chronic pain is often approached as a biomedical, rather than a biopsychosocial, phenomenon. As a result, psychological factors associated with initiation, prolongation, and/or exacerbation of pain remain under-appreciated and under-addressed.

A New Protocol

Connecticut’s WorkersCompensation Commission (WCC) has adopted a Psychological Pain Assessment and Treatment Protocol (PPATP; pages 2-7, https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/WCC/publications/professional-guides/protocols.pdf) for assessment and treatment of pain in injured workers.

The Connecticut Psychological Association has undertaken a major initiative to support effective implementation of this protocol.

Trained Providers

This protocol is expected to significantly increase the efficacy and efficiency of pain care in Connecticut’s WorkersCompensation system while  simultaneously enhancing public awareness of our profession’s skills and contributions.

Listed below are experienced psychologists with expertise in psychological differential diagnosis and advanced training in the WCC’s Psychological Pain Assessment and Treatment Protocol (PPATP).
