NEW SERVICE: Progressive Goal Attainment Program

I recently finished specialized training to provide a structured disability counseling program - Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP) that may be helpful for more serious workers' compensation, auto, or liability cases and for those who are having difficulty moving past their disability. It is a 15-week program designed to result in Return To Work (or in more serious cases improved quality of life). It is based on science and has numbers to back it up.

Injured or disabled: If you are like my other clients you are probably feeling very overwhelmed and cannot see your way past your current disability. This structured program can help move you forward in small, manageable steps. Email me for a free consult marysevinsky@icloud.com.

Professionals: I imagine this service might be effectively used to settle more challenging cases. I would even go so far as to say it could be used in place of "traditional" vocational services.  Email me for a free consult marysevinsky@icloud.com.

Here is more info, if you are interested:

From the PGAPWorks.com website: 

The treatment objectives of the PGAP® proceed from the view that return to work is the highest level of independence that can be offered to someone with a debilitating health or mental health condition. 

The PGAP® is currently the most researched risk-targeted intervention designed to reduce disability associated with a wide range of debilitating health and mental health conditions. 

The PGAP® is considered to be one of the most cost effective approaches for reducing disability and fostering return to work in individuals who suffer from a wide range of debilitating health and mental health conditions. 

The PGAP® has been shown to be effective in facilitating return to work in individuals who have sustained musculoskeletal injuries, individuals with chronic low back pain and fibromyalgia, as well as individual with debilitating mental health conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Resumes Before and After

I just created this Dropbox Showcase of resumes I have rewritten and designed!  I have been working on a way to display these and this new feature seems perfect - let me know what you think!

                                                     Resumes Before & After

If you are like my other clients you worked hard on your resume, and there are no terrible red flags, but I could make you stand out from other candidates. Your approach is likely typical to most job seekers/resume writers – providing more of a bulleted laundry list of duties rather than communicating what you can do for your current or new employer, depending upon your goal for the resume.

TAMING THE PAIN BEAST  Moving away from pain – not necessarily “curing it”
New Science has allowed more options for our clients than ever before. What are the benefits and drawbacks of employing the latest in treatment practices? What are the challenges?  Employer, industry standards, client, and individual proclivities may impact our ability to focus on the Injured Worker and ensure they are returned to functional, working life. How do we improve the way we educate workers’ comp professionals, the injured workers, employers, and adjusters?  What about controversial treatments such as medical marijuana, opioids, and Botox?  Are we keeping up? How can we learn from each other? Other industries? What makes sense?  We hope you will help answer some of these questions and more.
