WORKER’S COMPENSATION

Did you know that all of our licensed psychologists are certified to provide services for State of Florida Workers Compensation? We welcome referrals for plaintiff or defense IMEs as well as for psychotherapy.

Dr. Bordini served as an Florida Psychological Association (FPA) point-person in the 2003 Workers Compensation legislative changes. Unfortunately the changes were felt to be a major defeat for mental health services to Florida workers. His comments were published in an issue of the National Psychologist.

Dr. Bordini served as a past Florida Psychological Association Insurance and Practice Chairperson and recently completed a tenure as FPA Insurance co-chair from 2006-2008.  He had urged FPA to support efforts to pass the Florida Worker's Compensation First Responder Bill.  This passed into legislation in June 2007.  For firefighters, law enforcement and other first-responders, this restores some of the benefits lost in the 2003 law changes.

CITY OF GAINEVILLE EAP NEWS 

Drs. Bordini has participated in the City of Gainesville Violence Avoidance Committee since 2005 as part of our services to the City through our Employee Assistance Program. We appreciated the opportunity to contribute to the City's efforts to provide a safe workplace for its employees.  In 2006-2009 Our staff has provided on-site services in terms of dealing with serious medical issues, and Dr. Melchor provided a series of presentations on depression, resilience and medical illness.  We are proud to announce that we have been serving the City of Gainesville by providing EAP services for 10 years and Clinical Psychology Associates of North Central Florida were awarded the contract to continue in 2009 and beyond.
