NEW GROUP:

Living Life with a Loved One with a Alcohol or Drug Problem

This group will provide support, education and coping skills for employees who have family or friends who drink or use drugs.  If you have struggled to understand why your loved one continues to drink or use drugs despite consequences or if you are concerned that your own behaviors are enabling them, this is a group that you want to attend.

This group will meet September 25, 2019- November 20, 2019 on Wednesdays from 12 pm-1 pm. It will take place at the Professional Building which is located at 419 West Redwood Street, Suite 560.  

The groups are open ended and there are 15 slots, so please sign up as soon as possible to reserve your seat.  Please call 667-214-1555 or email msnella@som.umaryland.edu to sign up or get further information.    

Grief Support Group, 2015

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) will host a Grief Support Group for employees and family members.  The group will be held on Tuesdays at lunch time, noon-1:00, October 20, 2015-December 22, 2015.  The EAP has held Grief Support Groups in the past and they have been very well received.  If you want to register for the group, or are interested in more information, please call the EAP at 667.214.1555. You may also contact us by emailing Wanda Binns, EAP Manager, at wbinns@psych.umaryland.edu

Mediation for Employees

Did you know the EAP provides mediation services?

If two employees are having trouble working together, the EAP might be able to help.  Both employees can be referred (or refer themselves) to the EAP for Mediation Services. Different counselors would meet one-on-one with each employee. Then, the employees and the counselors will all meet to talk about problems and solutions.  Often, these meetings are only needed one time, but can span a period of time to monitor progress and use the meetings as a forum to talk about other issues that might arise.  Many times, misunderstandings have been resolved, new relationships have been formed and productivity has risen.  Work doesn’t have to be something you dread.  It can be a place you look forward to going to and feel accomplished as you and your team work together toward a common goal.

Grief Support Group, Fall 2014

Many employees have had someone close to them die.  Sometimes it is difficult to move through the grief process alone.  The EAP would like to offer extra support to those who find they need that. The EAP will be holding a new Grief Support Group on Mondays during lunchtime.  The group meetings will begin October 27 and end on December 29th, 2014.  They will be held noon-1:00 in suite 580 of the Professional Building, 419 West Redwood Street. Please call our new EAP number to sign up-667.214.1555, or to ask any questions.

On-Line Support Group

Email Group for Caregivers?

Are you caring for someone?  Is it difficult for you to find time for yourself? Would you like to be part of an email group with others in the same situation?  You could share ideas, frustrations, offer solutions, etc.   The Employee Assistance Program is in the process of developing an on-line support group for Caregivers. If you are interested in the group, please email Maureen at mmccarre@psych.umaryland.edu or call 410.328.0412.

Support Group Forming

(Group will not meet on January 20, 2014 due to the MLK holiday.) There will be weekly meetings, during lunchtime, noon-1:00p.m. in the EAP suite.  Space is limited, so call or mail us to register for the group as soon as you can.  Also, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  Wanda Binns, EAP Manager, will be facilitating the group.  You can reach her at 410.328.5860, or email at wbinns@psych.umaryland.edu.

Support Group for Caregivers

Caregivers Support Group

Come and join us.  We will meet every Friday in the EAP suite.  Register for the group by calling 410.328.5860 or by emailing Maureen at mmccarre@psych.umaryland.edu
