Practical applications and facilitation of every activity will be discussed.

Lyndon Fitzgerald Harris, M.Div., Co-director, Tigg’s Pond Retreat Center

• Room: Chicago VIII • Approved for 4 PDHs in Domain II, III (4 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC)

A recent article in Forbes Magazine reported that forgiveness is the “least understood leadership trait in the workplace” (Forbes: April 23, 2015). Forgiveness is often misunderstood as an otherworldly spiritual transaction that allows a free pass for misdeeds. Not so. During this interactive/ experiential session, the attendees will learn about a unique approach to wellness based on forgiveness. Drawing upon the research of Dr. Fred Luskin (Stanford University) and others, Lyndon will distinguish between what forgiveness is and is not, illuminate the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation, and set forth ground breaking ideas from the new science of forgiveness.

Learning objectives:

1. Explain what forgiveness is and is not, and why that matters; 2. Recognize wellness benefits for individuals and companies; and 3. Utilize a forgiveness toolkit with clients.

This half-day training will Claire Sutton give participants the tools, knowledge, and Consulting, Inc. insight to conduct comprehensive EAP assessments.

MONDAY CONFERENCE SESSIONS 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

ROOM: CHICAGO IX

1031-1a-01 A Heavy Price: The Effect of Subtle Weight Stigma on the Workplace • Jennifer R. Henretty, Ph.D., Director of Outcomes & Research, Center for Discovery • Jamie Crista Atkins, Supervisor of Adult Dietary Programs, Center for Discovery • Approved for 1.5 PDHs in Domain II, III (1.5 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) In our image-driven society, weight stigma is everywhere. There are subtle, and not so subtle, messages in the media and in our daily interactions with strangers, friends, and family. As the “fight against obesity” gains momentum, so do the effects of weight stigma, and the workplace is not immune. Weight stigma can permeate the workplace in casual conversations among coworkers, in employees’ internalized attitudes, and even in EA professionals’ own biases. This can affect productivity, healthcare costs, and employee well-being. In order to have the greatest impact, EA professionals must evaluate and fight the underlying negative weight messages in the workplace.

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM EXPO GRAND OPENING RECEPTION AND COSTUME PARTY All registered attendees, guests, and exhibitors are invited to meet, mingle, enjoy hors d’oeuvres, renew old acquaintances, and make new ones during the EAPA EXPO Grand Opening Reception. Enjoy this year’s special Halloween theme – come dressed in costume and trick-ortreat amongst the exhibitors!

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify subtle weight stigma messages; 2. Explain the deleterious effects of weight stigma; and 3. Utilize tools to decrease weight stigma in the workplace.

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

ROOM: CHICAGO VIII

1031-1b-02 Disability and Abilities: The Accommodation Conversation • Leonard T. DeBenedictis, LICSW, CEAP, EAP Consultant, Partners HealthCare • Approved for 1.5 PDHs in Domain II, III (1.5 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) This presentation examines the role of an EAP in helping individual employees and organizations navigate the process of accommodating employees living with disabilities, as well as family caregivers. Employees present to EAPs in different ways when requesting an accommodation or with work and home concerns without recognizing that a disability is impacting work. The EA assessment includes identifying the disability, understanding work demands, and finding and negotiating accommodations. Employees may require significant EAP support to develop an action plan with clear goals and to advocate for the accommodation. This session highlights case examples and an innovative process model for working with employees and employers to achieve more useful workplace accommodations for clients living with disabilities.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe a model plan for a workplace disability accommodation; 2. Recognize multiple psychosocial aspects impacting an employee with a disability; and 3. Navigate accommodations with clients within the systems at work.

ROOM: CHICAGO VI

1101-1a-03 Chronic Pain, Boomers and Opioids • Terrence A. Macho, Primary Counselor for the Headwaters program, Hanley Center at Origins • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Opioid use has skyrocketed among the “Baby Boomer” generation. This session explores generational histories and attitudes, as well as co-existing physical and mental issues, to better understand the context of escalating substance use disorder in the over-fifty age groups. Chronic pain is both physical and emotional in nature, and boomers often receive long-term opioid prescriptions that become more addictive and less effective for pain control over time. Evidence-based generational treatment must address the whole person, as well as the pragmatic life stage issues that influence substance use disorder recovery.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain appropriate treatment modalities for individuals over fifty with chronic pain; 2. Describe the generational and comorbidity aspects of boomer opioid addiction; and 3. Apply practical tools in assessment of and engagement in opioid abuse treatment.

6:30 AM - 7:45 AM

ROOM: SUPERIOR

1101-1b-04 What EAP Services Do Veterans Want? Best Practices and Lessons Learned • Jennifer Roseman, M.A., Executive Vice President, VetAdvisor Services • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW) Organizations that have successfully recruited and hired veteran employees now face the crucial next step: retaining those employees. Veteran-centric EAP and life success services are a retention strategy under consideration by companies of all sizes. But what particular services do veterans want? And what strategies best engage veterans in career and life success? A discussion of design and implementation of veteran-centric EAP services follows the presentation of collected data, lessons learned, and strategies for achieving veteran engagement in coaching services.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify life success program elements most needed by veterans; 2. Assess strategies to create and engage veterans in coaching programs; and 3. Describe best practices of veteran coaching programs, including ROI measurement.

OPENING KEYNOTE SESSION 9/12: Moving from Victim to Victor Through the Power of Forgiveness • Approved for 1 PDH in Domain III (1 CE Contact Hour, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Lyndon Fitzgerald Harris, Co-director, Tigg’s Pond Retreat Center Lyndon’s journey to forgiveness began while standing at the foot of the former World Trade Center as it exploded on September 11, 2001. As the priest in charge of Saint Paul’s Chapel, directly across the street from the WTC site, he coordinated the efforts of over 15,000 volunteers to provide meals to police officers, fire fighters, and other rescue workers at “Ground Zero.” This is the story of Lyndon’s personal journey to forgiveness, beginning on September 12, 2001, and continuing to the war-torn city of Beirut, Lebanon; post-genocide Rwanda; Jerusalem; and to a series of personal new beginnings.

Learning objectives:

1. Identify the impact of trauma on an entire community through first person narrative; 2. Examine the effectiveness of forgiveness as a therapeutic intervention for persons with PTSD; and 3. Frame forgiveness in a way that promotes healing and understanding.

Lyndon is the co-director of Tigg’s Pond Retreat Center, where he is developing a Journey to Forgiveness Institute. He served over 20 years as a pastor, including his work at Ground Zero as priest-in-charge of Saint Paul’s Chapel, located directly across from the World Trade Center in New York City.

TUESDAY CONFERENCE SESSIONS 10:15 AM - 12:15 PM

ROOM: CHICAGO VIII

1101-2a-06 High-Stakes Fitness for Duty Evaluations: When Concerns of Violence Arise • Bruce Blythe, Chairman, R3 Continuum • George Vergolias, Psy.D., LP, Associate Medical Director, R3 Continuum • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain II (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Fitness for Duty (FFD) evaluations assist employers and stakeholders to mitigate workplace risk around readiness to return to work and also offer guidance on defensible plans for re-integration into the workplace. Quite often the question of “risk” specifically relates to concerns of an employee’s potential for acting out aggressively or violently. These situations require a specialized understanding of forensic risk factors for violence that exceeds the expertise and scope of a routine FFD evaluation and require a more detailed forensically-oriented Violence Risk Assessment.

Learning Objectives:

1. Recognize differences between affective and predatory violence; 2. Distinguish between and de-escalate the two primary types of threatening communication; and 3. Determine when to refer for Fitness for Duty vs. Threat of Violence evaluations.

10:15 AM - 12:15 PM

ROOM: CHICAGO IX

1101-2b-07 Advanced Neuroscience Meets Workplace Depression and Anxiety • Nowreen Chowdhry, B.S., Research Coordinator, Stanford University School of Medicine • Alexander J. Mackenzie, MFT, CEAP, Director of Behavioral Health Integration, Crossover Health • Leanne Williams, Ph.D., Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain III (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Mood disorders touch all employees. One of the most pernicious myths surrounding mood disorders is the idea that successful people are “immune” to depression and that recovery can rely solely on “trying harder.” Even though some employees don’t meet the diagnostic criteria for major depression, quality of life, performance, and productivity are impacted. Fortunately, advances in neuroscience make it possible to more accurately diagnose and treat depression and anxiety. The application of neuroscience reduces stigma, avoids false starts, and provides practical, usable insight to the reasons behind treatment-resistant and refractory depression.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain functional MRI and neuropsychological testing in relation to mood disorders; 2. Cite specific treatment approaches; and 3. Implement an integrative approach in behavioral therapies.

10:15 AM - 12:15 PM

ROOM: CHICAGO X

1101-2c-08 Balancing the Needs of Employees with Cancer, their Co-Workers, and Managers • Rebecca Nellis, MPP, Chief Mission Officer, Cancer and Careers • Joanna Morales, Esq., CEO, Triage Cancer • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain I, II (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) When faced with a cancer diagnosis, employees have to decide whether to take time off from work or to work through treatment. Both decisions come with new experiences to navigate including psychosocial issues that are often under-addressed. In a survey by LIVESTRONG, 40% of cancer survivors who were asked about the practical concerns specifically mentioned employment issues, and 23% of those individuals did not receive any assistance. This session will provide EA professionals with information and tools to help employees navigate employment-related legal and practical issues using international employment laws as examples of where there are parallels to U.S. protections.

Learning Objectives:

1. Articulate some of the unique employment issues faced by those coping with cancer; 2. Cite legal protections/benefits to which survivors and caregivers may be entitled; and 3. Apply practical tools for helping clients navigate employment after cancer.

10:15 AM - 12:15 PM

ROOM: MICHIGAN

1101-2d-09 Train the Trainer - Creating Innovative Life Strategies for Managing Stress • Maria Ronda, LCSW, CEAP, EAP Manager, CSX Jacksonville Division • James Porter, President, StressStop.com • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain I, II (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) EAPs need to know how to lead effective strategy sessions around managing stress. This presentation demonstrates exactly how to get to the heart of common stress triggers like anger, worry, time pressure, and financial stress. A hands-on approach is used, introducing a simple stress assessment tool for teaching employees how to lower stress, shift mindsets, and eliminate unhealthy habits. This presentation covers experiential methods for teaching employees how to manage stress, from making lists of stressors, use of humor, using biodots, and even doing something challenging as a way to learn about negative self-talk.

Learning Objectives:

• Debra M. Messer, M.A., Senior Account Manager/Workplace Civility and Mindfulness Consultant, LifeSolutions EAP • Approved for 1.5 PDHs in Domain II, III (1.5 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Meditation, contemplation, and mind-body practices have been embedded in the world’s wisdom traditions for thousands of years. Now under the more secular title of “mindfulness,” these age-old practices are increasingly recognized and welcomed as a valuable resource for addressing the stress of today’s fast-paced and demanding work environment. As organizations struggle to “manage talent,” contain rising healthcare costs, and address disengagement, low morale, and burnout, they are turning to mindfulness training as an antidote. EAPs need to keep pace with and support organizational wellness initiatives.

• Michel Arsenault, MSW, RSW, Clinical Director, BDA Morneau Shepell • Matthew J. McCreary, LCPC, CEAP, Director of U.S. Problem Gambling and Special Projects, BDA Morneau Shepell • Approved for 1.5 PDHs in Domain I (1.5 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Through leading-edge technology and people-centered approaches like facilitated online group and SMS counseling, EAPs are now able to engage clients who would not otherwise access support, in ways that were never thought possible in an EAP context. Through case studies and the examination of best practice models that optimize the application of group counseling techniques to an online/messaging format, we look at how these strategies offer EAPs new opportunities to engage with employees and their families. EAPs can deliver group service, maintain privacy, and explore the application of emerging technologies to employee assistance practice.

McPherson, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, NORC University of Chicago • David Sharar, Ph.D., Managing Director, Chestnut Global Partners • Approved for 1.5 PDHs in Domain I (1.5 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Recent health care policy and delivery changes highlight the need for rigorous studies on workplace behavioral health services and the EA programs that deliver them. This session proposes a new framework to promote and organize such research for the U.S. and around the world. This framework encourages collaboration across five stakeholder groups: work organizations, EA professionals, researchers, educators of EA professionals, and funding agencies that can support new studies. Specific recommendations are provided to these stakeholders to help promote and align EA studies with the broad field of public and global health.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe a new framework to organize workplace behavioral health services; 2. Analyze gaps in the evidence-base for EAPs and how research can address; and 3. Discuss ways to promote and align EAPs with public health efforts.

1102-1a-16 EAP Proof of Success: Reducing Malpractice Claims for Physicians

1102-1b-17 How EAPs Can Do More to Address the Opiate and Heroin Epidemic

• Amanda L. Parry, MPA, Director of Public Affairs, Colorado Physician Health Program • Sarah R. Early, Psy.D., Executive Director, Colorado Physician Health Program • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I, III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) The Colorado Physician Health Program (CPHP) is structured similarly to employee assistance programs, assisting physicians’ health and ability to practice. CPHP seeks to improve the practice of medicine, and thus, the safety of patient care. Three years ago, researchers examined whether medical malpractice claims were associated with monitoring by CPHP using a retrospective examination of data. This study demonstrates that monitoring is associated with a lowered risk of malpractice claims, suggesting patient care may be improved by EAP model monitoring. The services provided by CPHP have a direct positive correlation for medical practice.

• Robert E. Martin, J.D., CEAP, President, R. E. Martin and Associates • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Overdoses are the leading accidental cause of death in many adult age groups. The use of opiate pain medications to treat chronic pain, often resulting from a workplace injury, can lead to abuse. Family members or co-workers may seek help from an EAP when their loved one is becoming addicted to prescription opiates or heroin. This session covers the extent and severity of this problem, how EAPs can get involved in their community, and how to advise clients to address the opiate epidemic.

Learning Objectives:

1. Demonstrate the usefulness of monitoring by a peer assistance program; 2. Summarize the reduction of malpractice rates among CPHP participants; and 3. Apply physician health program features that facilitate successful participants.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the connection and progression from chronic pain treatment to abuse; 2. Identify how marketing and over-prescribing lead to the opiate epidemic; and 3. Assess the prevalence, populations affected, and severity of the opiate epidemic.

1102-2a-19 The Struggle is Real: Lessons Learned on the Front Lines from Internal EAP Managers

1102-2b-20 EAP On the Go: Using Mobile Technology in EAP Counseling

• Jodi J. Frey, LCSW-C, CEAP, Associate Professor, University of Maryland School of Social Work • John Pompe, Psy.D., SPHR, Manager of Integrated Health Programs, Caterpillar, Inc. • David Sharar, Ph.D., Managing Director, Chestnut Global Partners • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Internal and Hybrid model EAPs are typically the most costly and the most robust in terms of worksite programming. In addition to leading substantive EA programs, internal EAP managers are on the front lines implementing and justifying programs to senior decision-makers. These EAP managers carry a unique perspective on the factors that can lead to program growth, erosion, and even elimination. The presenters interviewed internal EAP managers to develop an understanding of factors leading to the success or erosion of internal/hybrid EAPs, along with recommendations on how to mitigate organizational or environmental threats to the future sustainability of all EAPs.

• Whitney Stone, LPC, Behavioral Health Consultant, Anthem, Inc. • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Today’s EAP clients expect on-the-go communication. Innovations in mobile technology can be leveraged to make short-term counseling strategies more efficient and effective. The use of technology in EAP settings carries difficult-to-navigate ethical questions and professional risks. In addition, it is critical to differentiate an effective technology tool from a useless time-waster. This session covers how to ethically and legally utilize technology in EAP counseling, how to determine which client populations and generations might benefit from different types of technology, how to evaluate tech services for your business, and how to implement best practices for boundary-setting when technology is involved.

Learning Objectives:

1. Recognize threats or indicators that lead to the elimination of internal/hybrid EAPs; 2. Apply strategies most likely to increase the sustainability of internal/hybrid EAPs; and 3. Customize strategies based on this information to EA professionals.

1102-2c-21 The EAP Connection to Military Sexual Trauma and Campus Sexual Assaults • Patricia A. Herlihy, Ph.D., R.N., CEO & Founder, Rocky Mountain Research • Lauren Bloom, MSW Student, University of Maryland • Leah Marshall, MSW, RSW, Sexual Violence Prevention Advisor, Fanshawe College • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain II, III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Researchers are beginning to compare and contrast the issue of sexual assault in the military and academia. These silent epidemics affect 1 in 4 women in these two institutions. Many of these affected women are currently in the workforce; and although they may not reach out directly to their EAP, their symptoms and challenges may still surface in the workplace. All EA professionals should be prepared to observe the signs of women, men, managers, supervisors, etc., who may be struggling with these issues but unable to face them directly.

Learning Objectives:

1. Relate statistics for military and campus sexual assault as they impact the EAP field; 2. Connect trauma informed interventions, symptoms, and approaches to treatment; and 3. Identify symptoms relating to employee interaction and indirect workplace impact.

1102-2e-23 Where’s the Chronic Care Approach to Addictive Diseases? • Michael Jay Weiner, Ph.D., Director of Alumni Services, Seaside Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) In order to evolve toward a chronic care model of treatment, we need to identify differences between acute care models and chronic care models, create lifespan plans for recovery that include regular recovery check-ups, and eliminate any indication that meeting the objectives of residential treatment is a completion. Chronic diseases are either “stable” or “unstable” –– there are no failures. Progress for other chronic diseases is considered effective as long as the patient remains in treatment. This session suggests that treatment is being effective as long as the patient is engaged in a recovery-oriented system- of care.

Learning Objectives:

1. Cite evidence-based research supporting a chronic care model; 2. Identify three steps necessary to evolve to chronic care; and 3. Create a plan for a patient that includes lifespan recovery check-ups.

1102-2d-22 EAP in Trinidad and Tobago: Implications for EAP Outreach Throughout the Caribbean Diaspora • Daryl C. Joseph, M.A., CEAP, Managing Director, Josal Consulting Ltd. • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Culture significantly impacts the delivery of EAP services. What may work in one culture may be quite ineffective when working with employees from another. The Caribbean region has produced a vast diaspora of immigrants who have settled and made tremendous societal contributions in other regions of the world and is therefore a cultural group whose unique needs demand attention. This presentation takes a close review of EAP services in the Caribbean territory with the highest EAP usage, Trinidad and Tobago. The implications for effectively addressing needs of employees in the Caribbean diaspora worldwide are examined in the context of what currently works in Trinidad and Tobago.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe how EAPs work in Trinidad and Tobago; 2. Discuss the differences in how EAPs serve Caribbean nationals from other groups; and 3. Tailor EAP services to effectively address the needs of the Caribbean diaspora worldwide.

Dyme, LCSW, President & CEO, Perspectives Ltd. • Jodi J. Frey, LCSW-C, CEAP, Associate Professor, University of Maryland School of Social Work • Candice Porter, Executive Director of Screening, Mental Health, Inc. • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain III (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) When it comes to suicide risk assessment, many mental health professionals don’t know what they don’t know. For many suicide prevention efforts, the call to action is “seek help from a mental health professional,” yet mental health providers often have only basic training and many can’t pass a basic competency assessment. With proper training, clinicians can improve practice behaviors with clients at risk for suicide. In addition, EAPs can help companies build sustained and comprehensive suicide prevention programs. This session highlights organizational case studies and outlines several new approaches in suicide risk assessment, response, and management, and recovery from suicide loss.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain Joiner’s Model of Suicide Risk; 2. Articulate three questions used to elicit disclosure of suicidal thoughts or behaviors; and 3. Recall at least two types of clinician training for suicide risk management.

1102-3a-24 EAP Industry Outcomes for Employee Absenteeism and Presenteeism: A Global Research Analysis • Mark Attridge, Ph.D., M.A., President, Attridge Consulting Inc. • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain I (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) EAP services are designed to help employees, with the goal of restoring a high level of work function. Performance outcomes are the major source of value provided by EAPs, yet they are often measured only by absenteeism and wages, or are not measured at all. The EAP field needs a more realistic approach for measuring workplace outcomes. This presentation statistically summarizes the findings from eight large-scale research studies over the past 15 years, standardized into a uniform metric of work productivity level for a period of one month before and one month after the use of the EAP.

Learning Objectives:

1. Define the productivity path to value for EAP; 2. Explain why financial outcomes for presenteeism usually far exceed absenteeism; and 3. Calculate the typical ROI dollar savings per EAP case from workplace outcomes.

Isenhower, LISW-CP, CEAP, Risk Management Consultant, First Sun EAP • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain I, II (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) The supervisory referral is an essential component of how EAPs partner with and impact organizations. Interestingly, Joseph Campbell’s “The Hero’s Journey” provides a road map to journey through the referral process. Stories remind us rewards do not come without struggle. Failure is universal; overcoming it is necessary for heroes to master their trials. The supervisory referral is an employee’s call to adventure, and employees are the heroes we want to see while they succeed. This presentation provides a unique and inspirational look at the supervisory referral process, and it will discuss empowering ourselves and future heroes as they embark on their journeys.

Learning Objectives:

1. Draw parallels between “The Hero’s Journey” and supervisory referrals; 2. Identify possible failures in each stage of the supervisory referral process; and 3. Apply the lessons learned with future employees in supervisory referrals.

1102-3c-26 Taking Crisis out of Crisis Response • Les Kertay, Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer, R3 Continuum • Tonya Teal Slawinski, Ph.D., LCSW, VP of Business Development, R3 Continuum • Approved for 2 PDHs in Domain II (2 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) The term “crisis” is often used when a disruptive event occurs in the workplace. When an event is labeled a crisis, assumptions are made about when and how support should be offered. The question of whether or not a need for outside assistance even exists is often ignored. There is no universal approach to managing a disruptive event because each event has a unique impact on the workplace. If we remove the label of crisis, we are more likely to think creatively about what is most important for this event, in this workplace, to enhance employee and management resiliency.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain the impact of inaccurately assigning the term “crisis” to events in the workplace; 2. Discern the continuum of events from potentially disruptive to traumatic; and 3. Determine the appropriate services based on the type of event and the defined need.

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

1102-3e-28 Elevating Ethical Awareness • Bernard E.

On a larger scale, owners and administrators of EAPs also face ethical dilemmas as they design, market and compete for business. This ethics course is designed to enhance your understanding of EAP ethics in the context of the EAPA Code of Ethics and the EACC Code of Conduct.

Learning Objectives:

1. Summarize the core elements of the EAPA Code of Ethics and EACC Code of Conduct; 2. Articulate and define the essential steps of EAPA’s ethics decision-making model; and 3. Apply ethics decision-making model in an interactive group process with EA peers.

Kreuch, Psy.D., CEAP, Clinical Psychologist, Sandia National Laboratories EAP • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Worksite wellness programs, encompassing a broad range of educational and behavioral change approaches, are accessed annually by millions of employees. Recent definitions of “wellness” have broadened and view emotional wellness as an actively sought goal for positive change. The emotionally healthy employee typically functions at a high level with higher levels of productivity. Historically, EAPs have successfully integrated with worksite wellness programs. This session reviews the effectiveness of one company’s “health action plan” wellness model, including EAP/Wellness integration, overview of Emotional Wellness Plan structure and goals, descriptions of the program, and review of demographics and outcomes data for impact.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the concept of emotional wellness, including its impact on overall health; 2. Explain the elements of a “health action plan,” including implementation; and 3. Utilize validated instruments for tracking program effectiveness.

Some of the key challenges to the EAP field are the discussions around creating value and ensuring an ROI, ensuring quality through appropriate outcome research, and looking beyond the individual focus in order to make a real difference in organizations. Specific examples of these integrated services in Portugal and Belgium demonstrate a clear business case for this integrated service approach.

Learning Objectives:

1. Illustrate the current key challenges of the EAP field; 2. Demonstrate the importance of different coaching approaches to the EAP field; and 3. Visualize examples of integrated coaching and EAP approaches in practice.

Curreri, LPC, CEAP, Senior Manager, Project Wingman • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) In 2015, the copilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 intentionally flew an Airbus 319 into a mountain, killing 142 people. In light of this, many questions have been asked by the U.S. DOT and FAA about pilots and fitness-for-duty. In this session, we address and identify the specific FAA mental health guidelines for pilots and increase EAP’s knowledge about the special requirements for pilots when working with mental health resources. We examine pilot personality profiles, FAA limitations, SSRI protocols, and fitness-for-flight-duty assessments.

Learning Objectives:

1. Recognize pilot personality profiles in relation to EAP work; 2. Explain FAA pilot mental health protocols and guidelines; and 3. Identify SSRI requirements for returning a pilot to flight status.

• Approved for 1 PDH in Domain I (1 CE Contact Hour, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) The EA profession has changed dramatically in scope, service delivery models, and geographical availability since the first ALMACA conference 45 years ago. What was once a handful of practitioners in the U.S. has grown into a global movement that continues to bridge the worlds of human concerns and business objectives. For the first time in history, the presidents of five organizations join together to share their perspective on the

present state and the future of EAPs around the world. Hear first hand their vision for the future of the profession and how each entity is adapting to meet the needs of its members as they cope with a rapidly changing corporate landscape.

Learning Objectives:

1. Discuss the focus and mission of each organization; 2. Explore and suggest areas for collaboration; and 3. Examine ways to increase member involvement in activities that promote EAPs.

ROOM: CHICAGO VI ALSO SPEAKING Jeffrey A. Gorter, MSW, President, National Behavioral Consortium (NBC) Kaoru Ichikawa, Ph.D., CEAP, President, Asia Pacific Employee Assistance Roundtable (APEAR) Judy Plotkin, MSW, President, Employee Assistance Society of North America (EASNA) Igor Moll, MWO, President, Employee Assistance European Forum (EAEF)

THURSDAY CONFERENCE SESSIONS 9:45 AM - 11:00 AM

ROOM: CHICAGO VIII

1103-1a-35 Ethics and Technology • Susan Meyerle, LMHP, CEAP, Consultant, Life Resources • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Technology is changing the way employee assistance services are provided. EAPs are challenged to implement innovative approaches to better meet the needs of EAP clients. This presentation highlights recent changes in state regulations and the codes of ethics of national associations whose members provide clinical services. This session addresses the ethical use of technology in the counseling profession and suggests strategies that can be applied to the incorporation of technology in the provision of employee assistance services.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe current guidelines and regulations governing technology in mental health; 2. Use practical tools for engaging in ethically sound technological practices; and 3. Identify conflicts between ethical codes and current EA practice.

9:45 AM - 11:00 AM

ROOM: MICHIGAN

1103-1b-36 Teaching EAP: From Pedagogy to Practice • Daniel Hughes, Ph.D., CEAP, EAP Director, Mount Sinai Health System • Mary C. Olsen, Counselor, Employee Assistance Program, Mount Sinai Medical Center • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) With the impending retirement of many EA professionals, the field is challenged with training a succeeding generation of practitioners. The development of viable career pathways for new graduates is vital for the long term survival of the EA field. This session discusses survey data collected from the four remaining occupational social work programs, as well as rich qualitative data collected during two years of focus group study. A SWOT analysis is applied to the current state of EA education. This session focuses on challenges faced by new graduates seeking EAP employment opportunities and discussion of potential paths to move forward.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the changing landscape of the EA field; 2. Articulate the value of EA educational activities; and 3. Empower entry level practitioners with the necessary tools and skills.

9:45 AM - 11:00 AM

ROOM: SUPERIOR

1103-1c-37 An EAP Internship in a Nonprofit Setting: Experiences and Opportunities • Paul J. Fitzgerald, LCPC, CEAP, Director of Training, Adler University • Marie McKenna, LCSW, Department Director, Catholic Charities EAP • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) As more EA organizations move toward external affiliate-based EA models, the opportunities to train future EA professionals are becoming more challenging to find. In many ways, the traditional multi-service EAP with the ability to handle individual, family, workplace, and organizational issues with equal responsiveness and skill is the best place to train our future EAP clinicians and managers by giving them direct access to clients and organizations. This presentation makes the case for a non-profit based EA practicum/internship that includes both workplace/organizational elements and the chance to practice social responsibility in delivering workplace behavioral health services.

Learning Objectives:

1. Examine a range of EA settings as graduate training sites; 2. Suggest strategies to incorporate EA activities into clinical training; and 3. Review/evaluate strategies for improving training in the delivery of EA services.

9:45 AM - 11:00 AM

ROOM: CHICAGO IX

1103-1d-38 Managing Risk in the Workplace: Addressing Depression and Post-Trauma Impact with Employees • Margaret Kelly, LCPC, CEAP, Director of U.S. Clinical Services, BDA Morneau Shepell • Paul Wittes, MSW, Director of National and Global Clinical Services, BDA Morneau Shepell • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I, II (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Depression and post-traumatic stress are two of the leading causes of disability worldwide. While the brief intervention model of traditional EAP is demonstrably effective, we know there are populations who can benefit from extended services that go beyond the standard EAP parameters. By designing adjunct services that address early intervention, relapse prevention, and ongoing recovery support, EAPs can support clients with significant symptomatology related to depression and post-traumatic stress. This presentation provides an overview of comprehensive, innovative services that support this need.

Learning Objectives:

1. Recognize the clinical demand for innovative EAP trauma and PTSD services; 2. Articulate trends and best practices related to these services; and 3. Report on research results related to enhanced service models.

1103-1e-39 Is Your Organization Preventing or Reacting to Workplace Violence?

1103-2b-41 The Importance of a Technology Roadmap

• Rick Shaw, President and CEO, Awareity • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain II (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Employee and labor relations staff are often responsible for handling cases involving employees who threaten or commit violent acts. Staff can become overwhelmed and allow individuals to slip through the cracks, putting employees at risk. It’s better to prevent potential liabilities, media inquiries, fines, lawsuits, violent attacks, and tragedies than simply to react to them. Leading organizations are recognizing the value of community-based threat assessment and proactively identifying at-risk individuals before they escalate to the point of violence. This presentation utilizes evidence-based data to identify the six essential steps of preventing workplace incidents and escalations.

• Richard F. Paul, MSW, CEAP, Senior Vice President, Beacon Health Options • Thomas A. Farris, Ph.D., President & Clinical Director, Claremont Behavioral Services • Stanford W. Granberry, Ph.D., Executive Director, National Behavioral Consortium • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) The advent of a Health 2.0 world has introduced new technologies that are changing how EAP services are implemented, delivered, and measured. This session highlights the latest technology solutions, entering the market, and the importance of EAPs to develop a well-thought-out technology strategy. It also covers the 2015 National Behavioral Consortium (NBC) survey, “The Current and Expected Use of Technology Among EAP Affiliates.” A total of 1,482 EAP affiliates in the NBC companies, who provide EAP services to slightly over 23 million people, participated in the survey.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify warning signs and potential indicators of aggression; 2. Summarize the ANSI workplace violence prevention standard; and 3. Apply the 6 Essential Steps to Proactive Prevention to the workplace.

11:15 AM - 12:30 PM

1103-2a-40 The Employee Assistance Research Foundation History Project: U.S. and Canada

1103-2c-42 A New Dynamic for EAP and Wellness: Depression Screening and Awareness

• Dale A. Masi, LICSW, CEAP, President/CEO, Masi Research Consultants, Inc. • Jodi J. Frey, LCSW-C, CEAP, Associate Professor, University of Maryland School of Social Work • David Sharar, Ph.D., Managing Director, Chestnut Global Partners • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) The Employee Assistance Research Foundation (EARF) has identified the need for a comprehensive history of the EAP profession since 1965 and is sponsoring the development of a comprehensive project, “History of EAP: A Fifty-Year Perspective.” This session presents an overview of the project to date and sets the framework for the development of the field’s major themes. By understanding our history, we can better understand the development and future of the EAP field.

• Claudia D. Ryan, MSW, LCSW, CEAP, PHR, Senior EA Counselor, Bon Secours Virginia, Richmond EAP • Approved for 1.25 PDHs in Domain I, III (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW, NBCC) Improving employee health is now an essential part of corporate strategic planning. Wellness programs use a personal health risk assessment to evaluate the health needs of their employees and to demonstrate return on investment in their wellness programs. Employees who report high stress, low job or life satisfaction, and sedentary lifestyle are among the highest risk for serious health concerns. Recognizing the link between identified health risk behavior and mental wellbeing, an integrated Employee Wellness Program/EAP has leveraged the connection between depression screening and demonstrating the value of EAP intervention. Outcome data show significant improvement of employees initially identified as atrisk for clinical depression in areas including health, employee absenteeism, and overall productivity.

Learning Objectives:

1. Review the history of the EAP profession for the last 50 years in the U.S. and Canada; 2. Identify the respective themes that contributed to the evolution of the field; and 3. Relate the interviews of leaders in the field to the themes.

26

11:15 AM - 12:30 PM

This session discusses attachment disorders connected with struggles people have engaging in treatment and connecting to recovery programs. Tools are offered to enhance the employee’s chance of successful return to work and family. There are interactive discussions related to relapse behaviors employees display in their treatment process. Information is offered regarding second stage recovery, as well as definitions of emotional sobriety. Participants are challenged to address their own judgments regarding returning substance abuse employees to the workplace.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify and address the barriers recovering employees encounter; 2. Utilize tools to develop and implement relapse prevention plans; and 3. Overcome judgments EA professionals can carry regarding employees in recovery.

Expressing Transformation through Dance, Music and Drama • Jeffrey Mangrum, Director of Creative Development, SST Theater-based Learning and Development • Approved for 1 PDH in Domain I (1.25 CE Contact Hours, NAADAC, NASW) What better way to explore “Soaring on the Winds of Change” than to experience what change, transition and resilience mean for EA professionals through the medium of theater, song and dance? SST Theater-based Learning & Development presents a multi-disciplinary performance piece that will acknowledge the need for EAPs to constantly reinvent themselves within the context of an ever-changing landscape, draw upon current trends to understand where the field is heading, and celebrate the essential work that members deliver each day. This performance bridges the profession as exists today and prepares EA professionals to embrace the changes required to thrive.

Learning Objectives:

1. Improve service offerings based upon current industry trends and best practices; 2. Apply a change and transition model to your own work circumstance; and 3. Collaborate with other EAPs to creating safer, more productive work places.

Note: Lunch will be served at this session.

Currently, there are efforts to train and develop new EA professionals and standardize EAP practice in accordance with EAPA standards. In China, over 700 students have participated in EAPA’s four-day EAP diploma course. In Japan, a large staffing agency is encouraging employees to pass the EAP achievement test. Training on EAP core technologies and ethics is required before taking the test. Presenters from each country discuss successes and participant feedback from these two approaches to providing EAP-specific training.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify EA professional development trends in China and Japan; 2. Explain the cultural adapatability of EAP core technologies; and 3. Articulate cultural differences in professional consultation.
