Many employers now offer Employee Assistance Program (EAP). A growing number of providers have special training in evaluating and treating employees with brief therapeutic interventions. They are known as Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP®). This certification is “The world’s only professional credential denoting expertise in the EAP body of knowledge and behavioral health in the workplace.” (http://www.eapassn.org/Credentials/CEAP). At least one or more of such professionals are employed at Dirigo Counseling Clinic with more such professionals planning to have such recognition.
If your employer provides this benefit, please feel free to use it when the need arises. Confidentiality, with some rare exceptions, is assured in order for you to have the privacy you need to address your issues with optimism for resolution.
