Last year, I was pleased to be featured on the cover of the Journal of Employee Assistance during the 1st Quarter of 2017.
In my article, I discussed key cognitive functions that had particular relevance for working individuals. I also addressed specific contributions that can be made by employee assistance professionals (EAPs) as an important resource in identifying and supporting employees that become cognitively challenged.
Because the Journal requires membership, I have made my article available here.
Unlike a physical injury or developmental disability, the symptoms of cognitive decline are not always apparent and are often misconstrued as the effects of emotional or family-related problems. There is a great deal of relief that is experienced by affected individuals when they realize that someone understands and accepts their condition.
