Specialized Affiliate Training Offered at March Conference

The EA Specialist – Clinician (EAS-C) certificate of recognition program was developed by a team of experts to provide licensed mental health professionals in the U.S. with a unique opportunity to get an insider’s view of providing EA services as an extension of private practice. The course explains the unique aspects of EA practice and include tips for identifying the types of services affiliates provide for EAP vendors, as well as detailed information which may help providers increase EAP referrals. Certificate course completion includes a free one-year listing in EAPA’s EAS-C database, which is specifically marketed to EAP network managers.

As part of our annual March Conference, Jan Price from IEAPA will be the instructor for a one day, (6 contact hours) training covering the ins and outs of providing EAP services as a private practitioner.

Thank You Notes – Part I

At the recent World Conference, Dave Worster, gave an inspiring and emotional speech as he accepted the lifetime achievement award. Dave is familiar to many in our chapter as he is a past President of IEAPA and was the opening speaker and a presenter at one of our March Conferences. He then became one of our chapter members and maintined membership for several years.  The NC chapter helped provide financial support for Dave and his wife Karen to attend the Orlando conference and receive his award. Dave suffered a debilitating stroke, which has left him blind and impaired.  He sent the following message to express his gratitude for the support he got to make it to the conference: 

Dear friends and colleagues,

I want to say thank you to each one of you

for helping Karen and I get to the EAPA

Conference in Orlando this year … it would

not have happened without your generous

donations.  It was wonderful to be there, to

enjoy the opportunity to visit with so many

of you and, of course, to receive the Lifetime

Achievement Award. This is an award I will

truly cherish, as it comes from those who

have been there and know what it takes. My

best wishes for the future.

Take care and be well,
