Empowering Women in the Workplace details a cross-section of current concerns regarding women in the workplace which are relevant to employee assistance professionals and other human service professionals. Women researchers, academicians, and employee assistance professionals have compiled their current concerns of working women. The book illuminates these dilemmas and how far away equity in the work role is, while avoiding stereotypical conclusions by presenting exploratory and descriptive data in areas too infrequently investigated. Each chapter contains themes on economic disparity, stress and role strain, victimization and the silence that seeks to hide it, cultural ignorance or avoidance of women's and families'needs, and strong, powerful hopes for the future. Empowering Women in the Workplace is the first book of its kind in the field of occupational social work. The focus is broad and comprehensive and discusses topics insufficiently researched in occupational social work literature. This book also addresses how to effect clinical and institutional change.

It offers examples that help professionals become more aware of the need for training, with several chapters providing specific training ideas. It is a guidebook for planning for women and women's families, with immediate as well as longterm interests in mind. Empowering Women in the Workplace introduces the usefulness of research, including relevant information gained from large research studies. Chapters fall into the following topics: Women and Families: A new look at role conflict and stress as analyzed in two separate studies on single parenting and dual-career/dual-earner mothers. A comprehensive fact-filled look at the importance of child care options and the effects of family relocation. Women and Their Current Status: The needs of older women facing retirement are discussed, including an assessment of their financial and social risks. African-American women EAP professionals evaluate the needs of their African-American female clients who still face closed doors of opportunity. An exploratory study on workplace violence against women is also presented. Women as EAP Clients: The needs of lesbian women employees and women survivors of sexual abuse are explored and discussed.

Ideas for prevention, identification, and assistance for female AIDS victims are offered. Women as Employee Assistance Professionals: Betty Reddy, a female pioneer in the employee assistance field shares her memoirs of her career and the early involvement of women in the organizations which direct the profession. Empowering Women in the Workplace introduces concepts and applies methods to a variety of client and client/company conflicts that initiate the beginner and inform the expert occupational worker, human service professional, academician, and researcher.
