Employee Assistance (EAP)
Many medium- to large-sized workplaces have EAPs. These programs provide a designated number of confidential counseling sessions for individual employees and their household members who have personal difficulties, such as mental health, substance abuse, health, work, or family/relationship problems that impact their ability to function. Contact your HR department for instructions on how to access your sessions and find out if I am a provider for your EAP plan. I am a certified EAP specialist (EAS-C) and received significant training in assessment, referral, and short-term counseling.
EAP Workshops & Training
Many HR Departments use EAP as a resource for employee workshops and assistance for managers to address problems that may impact their work and the overall welfare of employees in the workplace.
Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) is a short term crisis management process that EAP’s utilize when a work-related crisis has occurred on site or an incident impacting their employees. This service is available upon request and dependent upon availability.
