  Introducing The History of Employee Assistance Programs In The United States - A New Book by Dale A. Masi  


The History of Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) in the United States provides a comprehensive look at the seventy year history of EAPs.


The first part of the history includes the historical data of the field using as source material social science literature, trade publications, government documents and other relevant sources. The narrative traces the growth of EAPs from occupational social work to occupational alcoholism to the fully matured employee assistance field. It ends with a prospective on the current issues and potential directions of the field.


The second part of the history consists of eight hour-long interviews with pioneers in the field that are also conducted by the author. The videos are online at the University of Maryland Health Science Library, and are available at the link below.

  Listen to Dr. Masi's acceptance speech.  

Dear Colleagues,

In 2011, I created and began teaching the only On-Line EAP Certificate Program available to students worldwide. The program has been a great success, with almost all courses at or above student capacity. I am proud to note we have had students enroll from over thirty-three different countries. The school is ready to grow and offer additional courses.

As result, I am happy to tell you that the Employee Assistance Professionals Assn. (EAPA) has acquired the school from MASI Research Consultants and will be providing the expanded program with the University of Maryland School of Social Work. I will remain as a consultant to the program for one year and will assist in training new professors for the courses.

You will receive a formal announcement from EAPA with more details. Any further questions should be directed to Greg DeLapp, EAPA CEO at

I encourage you to continue to support the school and EAP education.

Warm regards,
