WE HELP. WE LISTEN. WE CARE.
The employee assistance program is a free and confidential counseling program available to employees and their families who may be struggling with interpersonal problems and find themselves in need of some help. This is a program that may be offered by your employer. The EAP will offer assessment, provide information, offer short term counseling, provide referrals and follow-up. The cost of the EAP is paid by your employer. Accessing the EAP may occur by a self referral, a recommendation of a colleague, or a mandatory referral by your supervisor. Regardless as to how you are referred, contact with the EAP is strictly confidential. No one has access to your information without your written consent.
Each of the licensed clinical social workers are trained in Critical Incident Stress Debriefing. We will come on site to provide necessary intervention in the event there is a crisis or disaster associated with the workplace. The CISD team or social worker will help the individuals deal with the trauma in a manner that is safe and supportive.
Dr Chrisian Conte's Yield Theory
For the treatment of Anger Issues
Developed in 1998 Dr. Conte's Yield Theory consists of seven components:
Elimination of Shame
Using these components the therapist is able to offer consistent and effective treatment to those who have been victims of violence or offenders of domestic violence as well as those suffering from uncontrollable or irrational anger. Often these issues result in legal involvement and family turmoil. Here at PA Professional Health Services we aim to help each client rebuild and repair over the course of several therapeutic and psycho-educational sessions.
Adoption Home Studies
For those who are in the process of adopting a child, the state of Pennsylvania requires every family to have an adoption home study. Assistance is given to help to obtain the required criminal background checks with the FBI and the Pennsylvania State Police and Child Abuse Clearances. Once completed, the final report will be submitted to your attorney handling your adoption. The fee for the study also includes court testimony on the outcome of the home study by the social worker. This is a service not covered by insurance. You will need to contact the office for fees.
Employee Assistance Programs
We offer indiviudal, couples and family counseling to any alcohol related problems and substance abuse of any kind, legal or illegal. We also provide counseling services for gambling related problems as well as many other types of addictions. An assessment is completed prior to counseling to determine the severity of the addiction. Once this is completed, the therapist and the client work together to determine the most effective treatment plan and to ultimately help support the client in their recovery.
Our psychiatrists are board certified and will provide a professional psychiatric evaluation to determine if medication is necessary as part of your treatment. Follow up appointments will permit ongoing medication management. Our psychiatrists are qualified to provide a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and treatment for children, adolescents and adults.
