The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is designed help university employees with personal or work-related problems by providing short-term counseling (up to 5 sessions). EAP practitioners are trained in assessment. If it is determined that more than five sessions are needed, the practitioner will provide employees with a referral within the community. EAP practitioners attempt to ensure sure all referrals are covered by insurance, or if money is a concern, to help employees locate counseling services that are offered at a sliding fee or reduced rate.
