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.
From the PGAPWorks.com website:
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.
