New York Psychologists at Behavioral Medicine Associates

Behavioral Medicine Associates' Psychologists provide services as part of the injured worker's New York State Workers' Compensation Program. We have offices in the five boroughs of New York (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Staten Island) Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk counties) and upstate NY (Westchester, Rockland and Orange county). We treat injured workers suffering from conditions such as anxiety disorders (post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, and phobias) depression, relationship issues, anger, stress, sleep disorders, pain disorders, work problems, grief and loss.  Treatments may include cognitive behavioral therapy, self-instructional training, exposure therapy, relaxation training, meditation, mindfulness training, acceptance and psychosocial support.

One focus of the Behavioral Medicine Associates program of care is on the needs of the injured worker. Work related injuries often involve a behavioral component that requires treatment. Programs of pain management and lifestyle adjustment enable patients to return to work sooner, with less disability. It is well documented that ongoing, chronic pain results in significant psychological and behavioral dysfunction. Workers injured on the job who experience persistent pain require direct behavioral intervention. The impact of being out of work, losing one's identity, and coping with the results of a physical injury can be devastating. With treatment, workers can learn specific skills to cope with pain and to develop the skills necessary to adapt to their injuries. Treatment enables workers to develop the "emotional muscle" necessary to rehabilitate and return to a productive life.  BMA psychologists provide treatment as part of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board Program.

The BMA program of behavioral care is problem-specific; treatment is provided directly for the area of concern, and may include evaluation, therapy, education, and support. Behavioral health care provided by Behavioral Medicine Associates utilizes treatment approaches that are specific to a patient's medical problem. If the patient is suffering from a pain syndrome due to an accident, behavioral care is directed at coping with pain through the use of systematic, concrete, and logical treatment plans. Treatment focuses on the problem at hand, teaching patients skills to cope with their difficulties. This skills-based approach is more widely accepted by patients, and provides rapid results. Patients are not afraid that they are being "analyzed" or that they are considered, "crazy." Physicians are more accepting of this approach; it is based upon the medical model of care, they are not fearful patients will be kept in treatment for extended periods of time. Additionally, behavioral health care works in concert with medical treatment, allowing for a more positive medical result.
