Faculty and Staff Assistance Program Lends a Helping Hand
By Allison Sylvest

Life at CU-Boulder has its ups and downs, as does every workplace. Much of the time, personal or professional dilemmas are resolved without outside assistance. But for those times when extra support is needed, the Faculty Staff Assistance Program is here to help.

FSAP is a free, confidential counseling and consulting service for faculty and staff. Professional counselors and psychologists assist with any personal or work-related concerns including depression, substance abuse, work-related stress, career exploration and interpersonal conflicts. Referrals to outside resources also are available.

"The Faculty Staff Assistance Program is a great resource," said director Celia Sinoway. "CU-Boulder's faculty and staff are valued members of the campus community, and providing support for them is essential."

The program features a variety of regular events throughout the year including presentations and summer workshops exploring health and wellness issues. Upcoming events include a presentation by Deborah Flick, "Can We Talk: How to Have Conversations that Restore Connections with Colleagues, Family and Friends in These Divisive Times," September 22, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in UMC Room 247, and Dr. Alan Levine discussing the diagnosis and treatment of adult depression September 29, 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. in Recreation Center Conference Rooms 3 and 4.

FSAP also features an audio visual library, open to all university staff, faculty, students and parents. Informational video and audiotapes on a variety of subjects including anger and conflict management, eating issues, grief and loss, personal development and stress management are available.
