Dr. Goplerud and Dr. McPherson brought together the nation’s leading experts and professional associations to develop this joint EAP training program. The BIG Initiative and the EAP industry as a whole are collaborating to ensure all professionals working in this field are skilled in delivering this core EAP service.
All of the training materials are designed to match the needs of employee assistance clinicians. The training will be available for webinar and face-to-face educational programs and for self-study on the Internet or on paper. The specifics of these modalities are described in the Section labeled: Matching Training to Your Needs and Your Schedule. The Employee Assistance Professional’s Guide to Screening, Brief Intervention and Treatment is
designed for the real world. The program uses video and audio models of
EAP situations, role play, and feedback so that clinicians can learn
and practice new skills.
