Other Ways We Can Be Of Help

Consultation 
There are times when a chairperson or supervisor is concerned about an employee and would find it helpful to consult with an outside professional regarding whether to approach/ how to approach a troubled employee. It is often easier for an outside party to be more objective about a situation. Early consultation can often help to deter a major problem. We will be happy to consult with chairpersons and supervisors in these situations. All information is kept confidential.

Training
We will be happy to work with departments to provide training in areas such as communication skills, team building, stress management, conflict resolution or other needs you may have. We can also train managers, supervisors or department chairs on ways to recognize and refer the alcoholic employee.
