Therapy and Research
Business leaders continue to see a positive relationship between a healthy workforce and company profits. To address the "mental health" needs of their employees, many executives provide their employees access to confidential, counseling assistance programs to deal with personal issues. Businesses interested in exploring the Direct and Consultation Services described below should contact our office by phone at 717-394-3994 or by email at Business@Advanced-Counseling.com.
Employee Assistance Program - Advanced Counseling and Research Services provides the opportunity for businesses to enter into contractual agreements for counseling and referral services for their employees. Contractual agreements are tailored to meet the needs of individual businesses and their employees. Non-retainer, fee-for-services contracts can be made available which include service discounts.
As part of our ethical commitment to the community, Advanced Counseling and Research Services will generate referrals to counseling specialists in the local area when warranted.
Professional Counseling Services - Advanced Counseling and Research Services will provide a full range of professional counseling services to employees without requiring a contractual agreement with a business.
Advanced Counseling and Research Services seeks to help businesses provide the best counseling resources for their employees. We do this through two very specific initiatives.
1) Individuals seeking counseling services are often faced with limited information regarding the quality of professional services available. Much of the information made available to the public is in the form of marketing initiatives that are often unsubstantiated. Professional licenses and certifications, while important, may not provide an accurate picture of the quality of the clinical services offered.
Businesses can request an independent evaluation of a counseling service provider by Advanced Counseling and Research Services. This evaluation would examine the nature of the clinical services being provided, the qualifications of individuals providing the clinical services, the methods used to measure treatment effectiveness, and the overall treatment effectiveness outcomes.
2) Businesses can request case monitoring of employees participating in inpatient or outpatient counseling services. This independent monitoring includes a review of treatment planning, the application of "best practices", the identification of measurable clinical indicators reflecting client progress, and the overall evaluation of the counseling experience.
