The American Bar Association is in process of publishing a new reference book for attorneys working with personal injury cases.
With his background as both a Rehabilitation Psychologist and a Vocational Expert, Payson's Dr. Ron Peterson was asked to contribute a chapter to that book. He accepted the invitation and has now submitted a chapter titled Psycho-vocational Assessment in injury cases.
Dr. Peterson has provided this type of evaluation for attorneys for many years, both in and out of state. Such evaluations assist attorneys to examine all the non-physical features of an injury, and the total impact of injury on occupational functioning. The end result of this type of evaluation is to give direction for return to work when an injury blocks pre-injury job functioning.
The new reference book should be out sometime the latter part of this year.
