Paul also has a practice as a psychotherapist and affiliate for multiple EAP firms, and performs substance abuse evaluations for DOT safety-sensitive employees.

Program Overview: 
The EA professional’s dual role of providing services to both the work organization and individual employee clients provides ample opportunity for application of an ethical decision making model. On a larger scale, EAPs also face ethical dilemmas as they design, market and compete for business. This ethics course is designed to enhance your understanding of EAP ethics in the context of the EAPA Code of Ethics and the EACC Code of Conduct, and the codes of other disciplines in behavioral health (social work, psychology, professional counseling, and substance abuse counseling).

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the role and significance of ethics in professional practice;
  • Create awareness and understanding the EAPA Code of Ethics and the EACC Code of Conduct as applied to ethical decision making and as required for the CEAP credential;
  • Identify common principles guiding the ethical standards across the EAP ethics code and other behavioral health disciplines, and identify unique aspects of each discipline’s requirements;
  • Review the recommended ethical decision making model in EA practice;
  • Practice the ethical decision-making process using case examples in large and small group exercises.
