The article discusses research on the employee assistance programme (EAP) employed by the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary (DCC), England to address the issue of absenteeism. Analysis supported the view that counselling had a significant effect on reducing absenteeism. It identified many influences that in effect sabotaged counselling's ability to reduce absenteeism. Hurdles such as stigma and misunderstanding either made officers wait until they were desperate before taking up counselling or stopped them from taking it up at all.
