The Office of Employee and Organization Development is a benefit available free of charge to all enlisted and civilian personnel and their family members. The OEOD welcomes any questions or concerns you may have.

Our mission is to provide confidential services in assisting employees and their families experiencing behavioral or personal problems with the most effective methods of identification, intervention, and resolution of these problems to enhance their health, wellness, and productivity.

The EAP was developed in 1981 to provide enlisted personnel with a confidential place to discuss any personal or work related issues with a trained professional. Over the years, the OEOD has become increasingly involved in critical incident stress management, management & organizational services, peer advocate services, chaplain service and a wellness services. The OEOD has expanded it's staff and office locations to provide services to the Department of Law and Public Safety. All of our staff are certified and licensed professionals with expertise in behavioral health, occupational stress, and chemical dependency.

The OEOD is available 24 hours a day to respond to critical incidents.


The Grieving Process

Grief is not business as usual. It is a jagged process that involves emotional disorganization and moving through a series of phases until the loss is ultimately accepted and integrated into one's life experience. We experience grief physically, spiritually and emotionally. However, all of us have our own styles of grieving which is influenced by such factors as our age, gender , and cultural background. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. In this seminar we will discuss the phases of grief and the path to emotional recovery.

Personality Inventory

Every individual has a constellation of character traits that make up his or her personality. In fact our personality plays a major role in how we communicate, what we value, and how we experience the world around us. This seminar will present an overview of personality types as defined by the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. We will look at how each type is different and valuable in the contribution they make to the workplace.

Stress Maintenance

Life has become increasingly complex and demanding as we attempt to juggle the multiple roles and demands of our work and personal life. The cry of the 90s is, "I have no time." Yet we continue to take on more tasks and live our lives in the fast lane. This seminar will take a look at how we create stress and how we can learn to maintain the level of stress in our lives.


Are some people born with a natural aptitude for leadership or can leadership skills be taught to everyone? Many of us will be called upon to lead in our families, workplaces, and communities at some point in our lives even though we may not perceive ourselves as natural born leaders. In this seminar, you will learn what it means to be an effective leader, how to identify different leadership styles, and how you can develop your skills as a leader.

Work/Family Balance

The key to establishing work/family balance is in defining success for yourself and establishing healthy boundaries. The first step in achieving this is identifying your values and priorities and examining whether or not these values and priorities are reflected in your daily activity schedule. In this seminar we will look at how we sabotage ourselves and identify some strategies for achieving the unthinkable in our busy lives-BALANCE.

Conflict Resolution

Inevitably we encounter conflict in our working and personal life yet so many of us remain uncomfortable with it. In fact, any issue to which we have an emotional attachment can be an area for conflict. In this session we will look at the dynamics of conflict, styles of conflict management, and a model of conflict resolution. Come and learn how you can be more effective in resolving conflict in your workplace.

Communication in the Workplace

Some of the most important things we do in the workplace, regardless of our job title, include: coordinating actions, sharing information, and expressing thoughts and feelings. Communication is a critical part of every job but few of us receive formal training to help us communicate effectively. Come and learn what some of the most common barriers to communications are and how to avoid these pitfalls in your workplace. The payoff can be mutually trusting two way communication that leads to greater job satisfaction.

Behavioral Health

In the media, in our workplace, and in our communities we are bombarded with psychological terms. Depression, Anxiety Disorder, ADHD, Panic Attacks, Anorexia, Bulimia, DSMIV, Chemical Dependency. Have you ever wondered what all these terms really mean? Many of us are conscientious about our physical health and monitor our weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. But do we do the same when it comes to caring for our psychological health? In this seminar, you will learn how to assess your mental health and well being. We will also discuss resources available in your community and how to select a counselor.

Critical Incident Response

The OEOD is available 24 hours a day to respond to critical incidents.

A critical incident is any event or unusual occurrence that can cause an enlisted or civilian employee to experience an unusually strong psychological or emotional reaction, which has potential to affect the employees ability to function in a well adjusted manner.

When a critical incident occurs a member of the OEOD staff will, if practical, meet with the employee within hours of the incident. A member of the OEOD staff will meet with the employee again three days after the incident to discuss the psychological and emotional impact of the event. A debriefing is a psycho-educational process designed to alleviate the impact of the event. A debriefing is not a substitute for psychotherapy.
