EAP renamed Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience

March 5, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Michigan Medicine Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is now the Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience. According to Kathleen Robertson, manager of the newly-named office, the new name better reflects the core services and specialization in the well-being of health professionals offered to Michigan Medicine faculty and staff.

“We are committed to aiding our Michigan Medicine community each day feel less strain and more fulfillment and growth,” said Robertson. “Resilience speaks to our ability to cope with stress and strain in our lives and to weather adversity. It is a set of skills we can build over our lives that can transform challenges into growth. It can be nurtured, fostered and taught.”

To help in that effort, the office will continue to provide free-of-charge and confidential counseling, consultation, coaching and stress debriefing services to help faculty and staff develop strength and resilience in their personal and professional lives.

The Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience also offers a number of programs designed to help individuals and departments reduce burnout, fatigue and to foster resilience, including:

  • Foundations of Self-Care
  • Being Present at the Bedside: Mindfulness in Nursing
  • Circling Back: Reconnecting to Values, Purpose and Joy

  • The 8 Habits of Happiness
