Our WorkCover Psychologist, has a wealth of personal experience in work places so does understand how, stress at work can occur. Importantly they also can advise the worker on how to manage stress. they will work with you, your employer and claim advisors in order to best resolve the claim.

The experience of stress or trauma in the workplace can be surprisingly severe, and can have any one of several causes. In many work places there are multiple causes. What they have in common is that often the worker does not have control over events of people that are causing the stress.

Bullying, especially over a period of time is demoralizing and leads to low self esteem and other symptoms of stress. Just plain demand for working harder than you can work, when there is no control over the demand i.e. work overload, can also lead to severe symptoms of stress. These are just a few of the situations that can lead to the experience of symptoms of stress.

Chronic pain arising from a WorkCover injury, particularly in context of a long recovery time is a very stressful experience.
