AbstractSeveral weeks ago, while conducting a prevention workshop for a large group of corporate training professionals, we discussed EAPs. One participant commented afterward. "It's surprising to see EAPs are getting involved in prevention: they tend to be so reactive and after-the-fact." Soon after that workshop, we read an article in this journal calling for scrutiny of the core definition of the employee assistance profession and greater emphasis on evidence-based EAP services.
