    Benefits Canada    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    As the population ages, it's inevitable that some employees will need to take on a caregiving role in addition to their full-time jobs.

    Workplace violence: Is your office at risk?
    CBS News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Are there ways to protect co-workers from a potentially unstable peer? Short of violence in progress, nothing is a reliable sign that someone is about to "erupt." The idea of someone "just snapping" is a media fiction, said Park Dietz, M.D., Ph.D. and president of the Threat Assessment Group in Newport Beach, Calif. More

    You can't spell appeal without E-A-P
    Employee Benefit News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    If the focus of EAPs shifts from addressing "mental health" issues to "brain health and wellness," the appeal and potential engagement of employees broadens.

    Researchers have found that a match of personality characteristics to job tasks improves an individual's experience at work. In two news studies, psychologists Drs. Claudia Harzer and Willibald Ruch from the University of Zurich have shown that a job is particularly rewarding if it suits one's own signature strengths. More

    Employers fear wasteful coverage overlap from array of benefits programs
    Business Insurance    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Large employers face substantial challenges in trying to determine whether they are paying for wasteful coverage overlaps among an array of benefit programs intended to keep employees healthy and productive, observers say. Employers are concerned because the numerous companies providing their workers with everything from health plans, employee assistance programs, disability management services, wellness offerings and workers comp claims administration could be doing more harm than good in some cases by conveying conflicting, uncoordinated advice.

    Counseling Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    For many counselors, retreating into the depths of a novel can often be a much-needed and well-applauded act of self-care. But can reading fiction actually make someone a better counselor? Empathy-focused research in the past few years suggests that this may very well be a possibility. More

    Off-the-couch mental health therapies
    Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    While traditional talk therapy can help people struggling with depression, anxiety and the stresses of daily life, the latest research on the brain and the mind-body connection has sparked a proliferation of approaches that may reach deeper levels of emotional healing than talking alone.

    Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    According to the latest Stress in America report from the American Psychological Association, today's millennials have sky rocketing stress levels: 52 percent report increased stress levels and an increasing differential between what they perceive as a healthy level of stress and their own levels. Of course entering the job market in a difficult economy, setting up residence (or living with parents), and thinking about their future is stressful, but is there a correlation between millennials' approach to work and achievement and their stress levels?

    Mental illness affects job prospects more than physical disability
    Medical News Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    The stigma of mental illness often has a greater impact on people's employment prospects than physical disability or illness, Australian researchers reported.
