      Herlihy, Patricia A. (2020-06-05)
      The Employee Assistance Quarterly grew out of the Labor-Management Alcoholism Journal in 1983 and became the premier peer-reviewed journal for the Employee Assistance field. Mr. Keith McClellan led the creation of the Journal and served as Editor-in-Chief for the first 20 years. Dr. Paul Maiden served as Editor-in-Chief from 2004 through 2014, when Dr. Jodi Jacobson Frey and Dr. Beverly Younger became Co-Editors-in-Chief. In 2018, Dr. Younger stepped down and Dr. Darcy Siebert joined Dr. Frey as Co-Editor-in-Chief. The Journal, renamed Journal of Workplace Behavioral Health, continues to serve as a leading international peer-reviewed journal, publishing research on Employee Assistance, and programs, initiatives, and polices affecting work and wellbeing. This piece highlights the unique relationship that the Employee Assistance Society of North America (EASNA) has had with the Journal throughout the years.
