Description:

An employee assistance professional’s client is often thought of as the individual employee.  However, the vast majority of employee assistance programs (EAPs) provide direct services to the employee’s spouses, partner and/or children. Emotional health is equally as important as physical health for a productive workforce and healthy business.  The emotional health of the employee’s family members impacts the employee’s workplace productivity and the employer’s bottom line, as well.  This webinar helps the participant better understand the dynamics of the alcoholic family in order to support both the EAP client and the affected family members.  

 
Learning Objectives:

By the end of this webinar, you will be able to: 

  • recognize and explain to clients how addiction affects the whole family; and
  • describe the process and levels of family recovery.
