EAP 101 Workshop Coming to the Austin-Area on August 26

Join NASW/Texas for a comprehensive overview of Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs.) Many EAPs are now managed by insurance companies, or ‘hidden’ in general HR liability policies. With a greater emphasis on workplace wellness and creating healthy workplace cultures, social workers are more needed than ever. This workshop will discuss the core technology of best practice EAP programs and explore the opportunities for licensed professionals in the workplace. Sponsored by Rock Springs Behavioral Health and Eating Recovery of Austin. Learn more .
