The article reports that employee assistance programs (EAP) have traditionally provided eligible employees and their dependents services related to personal and family issues. However, EAP services have evolved especially in the light of events such as the 9/11 terrorist attack and the Oklahoma City bombing. Part of EAP's mission is to provide tools and services in such traumatic situations which include community websites for the local area and Red Cross services.
