Why Desensitization?

Desensitization services assist the employee in-volved in the work-related incident in returning to work. Desensitization teaches the employee techniques, on how to desensitize him/herself from the work-related incident. During desensitization the employee interfaces with co-workers and participates in exercises in his/her work environment. The employee meets with the vocational/desensitization consultant two to three times per week. Monthly reports are developed documenting the employee’s progress in the program.

Benefits of Desensitization
  • Reduces the amount of time the employee is out from work
  • Reduces the cost
  • Return to work increases significantly
  • Works with the treating physician to achieve RTW
  • Monthly progress reports
