"This DOT Training and DOT supervisor training program was easy for me to modify to meet my needs today—exactly what I was looking for. I needed to develop a course quickly, but I didn't want to kill myself doing it. The content was well developed and broad enough that I could adjust the run time by dropping a few slides rather than having to add slides to make it longer. Thanks!"

DOT Training and DOT Supervisor Training in Reasonable Suspicion

About Us is owned by DFA Publishing & Consulting, LLC. We are located near Charleston, South Carolina. We offer products to reach workplace professionals concerned about employee behavioral issues in the workplace, reducing associated risk, and improving supervisor skills.

We started operations in 1994 with the publication of  the FrontLine Supervisor newsletter. It is still one of our most popular products. It is an editable, reproducible, and e-mailable publication that educates managers, supervisors, and team leaders in how to use the organization's employee assistance program as a resource to help employees improve job performance. It also offers skills education to help supervisors become better managers of themselves and those they supervise. We have written over 780 questions and answers on the supervisor's role to date.

We offer publications, training products, free informational tools, ideas, and tips to support employers, and those who serve employers with the mission of helping employees remain happy, healthy, and productive.  Our goal is to also help employers reduce behavioral risk exposures and loss of productivity that flow from employee behaviors influenced by behavioral health conditions, stress, addictive disease and substance abuse, conflict at work, personal troubles, inappropriate and risky behavior, and reactions to events like violence, trauma, and loss.

Our customers include:

  • human resource professionals, trainers, and benefits consultants
  • employee assistance professionals
  • substance abuse counselors
  • wellness and occupational health professionals
  • insurance agents and those who strive to help employers reduce risk
  • family medical practice professionals
  • safety professionals
  • mental health professionals in public or private practice
  • organizational development professionals
  • small business owners or their office/business managers's products and services provide you with the ability to help more employess, clients, or patients. In many cases, our products allow you to reach their family members and significant others as well.

One of the unique aspects of many products is the ability to edit or brand material so it works seamlessly with your organization's Web site or educational program.  Many of our products are offered in several media formats. We know that many of you are experts in your fields, with preferences for specific topics, content, and specific terms for health conditions, etc.. Not all companies are the same and work cultures differ, too. So, modifications must be made to training materials, and this feature must be part of the product you purchase. We give you this control over most products, either at your end after purchase or prior to purchase, by helping you with customization, adding your logo, taking our name off the product, etc.
