Delaware Counseling Services/ EAPs: What you need to know

Human resources generalists, as well as Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counselors, managers, and directors, can keep abreast of the issues related to EAPs by joining a chapter of the Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA). These groups also provide guidance to employers that have not yet set up EAPs in their own companies.
