Abstract

Questions why an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) professional concerned with applied aspects of workplace intervention should be interested in the findings of basic research concerning non‐work matters. Suggests that this thought may keep some EAP professionals from paying attention to developments in basic research regarding work, family and health. In light of this, draws attention to various papers and basic research findings from the “Work, family and health” conference held in Georgia, Atlanta in 1992. These findings include, for example, the fact that when women find themselves occupying statuses incongruent with their self‐concept, they consume alcohol in larger quantities and in less socially desirable ways.
