Canberra Injury Management Centre
They also provide a full range of general psychology services for client specific concerns, including:
For clients undertaking our pain or injury management programmes, individual sessions with a Psychologist can be utilised to compliment the material introduced in the pain education sessions – or can be undertaken in isolation if the client’s primary concerns relate to psychological, interpersonal or emotional issues that have arisen since being injured. This could include emotional distress, increased stress & anxiety, PTSD, depression and workplace issues, which are known to contribute to an individual’s experience of pain and disability.
Our Psychologists utilise cognitive behavioural strategies and other recognised psychological approaches to address pain management strategies, and assist in the development of adaptive coping strategies. Such strategies could include relaxation, mindfulness, stress management, pacing, flare-up management, assertiveness training and effective communication skills.
