      A Brief History of Labor Assistance Professiomals
      Interview with Mickey Diamond


      Mickey Diamond was a member of the LAP New York City chapter and an early pioneer in the development of union-based occupational alcohol programs in the workplace. The LAP organization honors him each year with a presentation of the "Mickey Diamond" award to a deserving LAP member at the summer conference.

      "Mickey Diamond was not only a leader, but an innovator in the world of alcohol treatment programs in the workplace. In this interview he gives the viewer a small glimpse of his life story and into what it was like to be in the field in the early years of Employee Assistance Programs. Mickey died less than a month after this interview, he is sorely missed." - ILR School, Cornell University
