Crystal Ballroom C
Convention Level
(Entrance to G2)

This session will discuss the differences between psychology and neuropsychology, as well as explaining the various types of psychometric testing. The panel will analyze how these specialties and tools are used within the workers’ compensation system when mental health issues arise as part of a claim. This course will help the workers’ compensation professional understand the diverse field of mental health and how treatment plans are delineated. We will also help the claims professional to recognize how these results help the physiatrist to determine major contributing cause and resolve mental issues as it relates to the claim.
