The primary purpose of the current study was to determine the efficacy of short-term therapy in the reduction of symptoms and overall emotional distress for clients seeking help through a privately contracted Employee Assistance Program (EAP). A review of EAP literature is presented as well as research findings related to psychotherapeutic outcome studies. Clients' noncompliance in returning Post and Follow-up assessments resulted in a small sample size. For clients who returned Post and Follow-up assessments, results indicate that short-term psychotherapy offered in the EAP was effective in reducing symptoms and emotional distress for clients who received therapy. Methodological problems encountered in the study and directions for future research are discussed.
