Overview

Employee Assistance Programming has evolved from a mechanism of social control to a major force for heatlh promotion. The field offers great potential for helping to build healthier communities of workers and families, in addition to helping individual workers who may see themselves, or be seen by others, as people with problems.

Wellness and Work: Employee Assistance Programming in Canada provides a clear vision for employee assistance programming. The book is divided into five sections: (1) evolution, (2) structure, (3) practice, (4) case studies, and (5) creating wellness. In this historical, theoretical, and practice-oriented collection of original articles, both student and practitioner will trace the growth of this burgeoning field of practice. An informative and useful book for the practitioner and visionary alike, Wellness and Work will be an essential addition to the libraries of helping professionals and service delivery organizations.
