• EAP and SAP: Similar but not the same

      Cagney, Tamara (2013-01)
      The relationship between employee assistance professionals and substance abuse professionals is something akin to cousins. They share the same roots and many branches of the same family tree but these are very different roles. Those outside the family sometimes confuse these functions and even practitioners can under estimate some of the conflicts that arise between the two roles.

    • The Results of a Traditional Alcohol Intervention Approach with Alcohol Abusers in a Heavy Industry Setting in Russia

      Motivating alcohol abusers to enter treatment, comply with recommendations, and make significant changes in their behavior is no easy task. In the West, professionals learned the importance of motivation early on, and they learned it first from those recovering in Alcoholics Anonymous. Early occupational alcoholism programs used job performance and disciplinary steps to motivate problem drinkers to take action. The threat of job loss proved significant in breaking through denial and in motivating clients to begin a recovery process. This approach was incorporated into the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and EAP professionals have used job performance and disciplinary steps to motivate those with many types of personal issues. In the Russian Federation, no such history exists. This workplace-based alcohol intervention program is a first for Russia, and it uses the work performance approach successfully deployed in the West for many decades.
    • Substance Misuse and the Workplace: Emerging Trends and Innovative Solutions (1/26/22)

      McNutt, Bryan R.; Cagney, Tamara; McGinn, Calvin; Wallace, Heidi (2022-01-26)
      Many complex disruptions and changes have emerged within the world of work during the COVID pandemic, including the expansion and normalization of remote work, multifaceted workplace safety considerations, and reimagining how to support mental health needs of a diversifying workforce. There are also rapidly changing trends of substance misuse and how substance misuse converges with the workplace. This presents new challenges for employee assistance practitioners who provide assessment and treatment interventions for employees in need and provide support for managers and leaders who are navigating these complex organizational challenges. The presenters discuss emerging and difficult trends of employee-related substance misuse in the context of workplace environments. Attendees are encouraged to think deeply about how prepared they are to provide assessment and intervention support for complex situations of employee-related substance misuse, address workplace-related stress associated with politically-oriented topics respectfully, and constructively navigate cultural aspects inherent within such conflict.
