EAP is an acronym for Employee Assistance Program.
It is a short-term, solution-focussed counselling and referral service available to employees through your workplace.
An Employee Assistance Program is a confidential service provided externally to your organisation by psychologists and social workers to assist with workplace and/or personal issues that you may be experiencing.
These may include:
Work related issues:
work performance, job security, career, motivation, stress, conflict and harassment.
Depression; anxiety, grief and loss, fear/phobias, personal development, trust, self esteem, anger, alcohol and drug use, gambling, and other health related issues.
Family and relationship issues:
Parenting, family violence, intimacy, generational difficulties, and other family challenges.
The Employee Assistance Program is completely funded by your employer and is provided at no cost to you, and you don’t need a referral.
UltimateEAP is a service provided by Ultimate Youth Worker, an Australian company that provides support & professional development for youth and community services workers to build and maintain longevity in the field.
