Online Short Course: Introduction to the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
Brief Description
The Online Short Course: Introduction to the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) provides an introductory background on the EAP as a field of specialisation. Due to the increase in employees experiencing psycho-social problems, which impact on their personal lives and productivity, the EAP is acknowledged as a tool to assist such employees to overcome their personal problems and to restore their productivity and avoid disciplinary hearings and possible dismissal.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of the course, delegates will be able to: 
  • describe relevant concepts and definitions;
  • describe the role of work in the psycho-social functioning and productivity of the employee;
  • identify trends in the development of the EAP, both locally and internationally;
  • explore and describe related fields such as organisational development (OD) in order to distinguish the EAP from them, but also to stimulate cooperation;
  • define organisational climate and organisational culture and its influence on the EAP and
  • identify legislation relevant to the field of EAP, especially in the absence of EAP-specific legislation.
