Summary

This landmark text discusses current issues and trends to help employee assistance and human resource professionals do their jobs better and help people live happier, more productive lives by providing them with the resources to deal with personal problems. The current spiraling and escalating rate of change within the business and working world, fueled by other events and phenomena since September 11, 2001, were the impetus and driving force behind the initiative and development of this new fourth edition. This book contains 43 chapters; a total of 21 are from the first two editions, eleven were written specifically for the third edition, and eleven new chapters were exclusively written for this new fourth edition. While savoring the still pertinent, meaningful and relevant-to-today materials from the previous editions, there are nine new updates, written by an all-star team of experts in their respective areas. The topics include history and philosophy, structure and organization, client services and characteristics, program planning and evaluation, professional and paraprofessional training and development, special issues, selected examples and future directions. An excellent textbook for college and university courses and preparation source, this book is a must for professionals wanting to be up-to-date on employee assistance programming, for students in graduate courses and seminars, for college and university courses, and in-service training and continuing education programs.
