  • Employers can help employees beat the holiday blues
    Employee Benefits News
    People who are depressed but not treated consume 2 to 4 times the health care resources as those who are properly treated. The good news is employers can address this problem head on, and at relatively low cost. The first step is already embedded in the fabric of most companies — an employee assistance program. Based on a behavioral risk survey conducted by our organization in 2012, 97 percent of employers surveyed had an existing EAP program. But as prevalent as EAPs are, they are woefully underutilized.

    Most organizational clients and EAP Providers say they are satisfied with a 90% EAP Customer Satisfaction/EAP helpful rate. Consider a 10,000 employee population.

    The selling of attention deficit disorder
    The New York Times
    After more than 50 years leading the fight to legitimize attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Keith Conners could be celebrating. Severely hyperactive and impulsive children, once shunned as bad seeds, are now recognized as having a real neurological problem. But Conners did not feel triumphant this fall as he addressed a group of fellow A.D.H.D. specialists in Washington.

    Symptoms of combat-related psychological trauma eased by new brief therapy
    Medical News Today
    Accelerated Resolution Therapy is a brief, safe and effective treatment for combat-related symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder among veterans and U.S. service members, researchers at University of South Florida College of Nursing report in a new study. They found this newer treatment — a combination of evidence-based psychotherapies and use of eye movements — was shorter and more likely to be completed, than conventional therapies formally endorsed by the U.S. Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration.

    Stress and the leadership factor
    Human Resource Executive Online
    The obsessive focus on short-term results has led to unhealthy workplaces led by emotionally unhealthy people. In such an environment, even the best-designed health and wellness programs won't be effective. Are leaders who neglect their own emotional health be partly responsible for increasing stress in the workplace?

    Workplace depression caused primarily by workplace injustice
    La Jolla Light
