Effective employee assistance programs: a guide for EAP counselors and managers
"This is a comprehensive book that does not rely solely on a descriptive account of employee assistance programs (EAPs) but delves beneath the surface to discuss issues involved in providing psychological services at work. . . . This book is well referenced, making it of value to students and researchers." --Andrew Bull in Counselling at Work Despite the number of books, articles, and journals on Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs), there is little information in print that deals with the core responsibilities of the EAP counselor and the counseling of employees and their dependents. Effective Employee Assistance Programs bridges this gap by providing lucid discussion on the counseling of troubled workers. It pays special attention to the theoretical orientations, practice models, and intervention techniques that are most effective in helping employees with chemical dependency, physical health problems, family difficulties, and more. It also discusses the dramatic changes that have occurred in EAPs since the mid-1970s. Although the major focus of this volume is direct counseling, content regarding management of EAPs is included to provide a more comprehensive resource. Suitable for anyone currently active in the field of Employee Assistance Programs, this volume will also be an important resource for students and professionals in the fields of social work, substance abuse, clinical and counseling psychology, management, and public administration.
