Abstract:Findings indicate there has been significant "leakage" from General Practice counseling into EAP, or the degree to which EAP clients receive General Practice counseling, in the form of short-term intervention, as opposed to EAP specific services. There is currently not much contrast between EAP work and General Practice counseling, and the marginal differences reflect the nuances of benefit design (e.g. number of allowed sessions) and a basic awareness among Affiliates that EAP is at some level about personal problems that overlap with job performance. Given these similarities, some employers may be paying multiple premiums for a similar service (e.g. EAP and mental health plan benefits). Since practitioners do not routinely practice EAP as conceived, then the field needs to adopt a position to bridge the gap between the EAP model and actual practice.
