How to request an EAP Presentation

Our presentations are now available via live and recorded webinar.

We are able to accommodate some requests for live presentations to workgroups, depending on presenter availability and scheduling. Please make your request a minimum of 6 weeks in advance to increase the likelihood that we can accommodate your request. To submit a request, submit a Request for an Organizational Consultation form. Our goal is to respond to your request within 1 business day.

When you request a presentation specific to your workgroup, an EAP counselor will schedule a consultation with you to help clarify your goal and assess the concerns you hope to address through an EAP presentation. Sometimes through consultation we are able to determine more relevant or helpful options such as management coaching through EAP, referral to in-depth training resources through DES Training and Development, or mediation and facilitation. If an EAP presentation is right for you, we'll work with the supervisor or manager to schedule.
