Seeman and his associates (Seeman and Anderson, 1983; Seeman, Seeman, and Budros, 1988) did not find effects of less complex work and of less job latitude an index of decision-making and skill involvement in work, but they did find effects of powerlessness. They found that a generalized sense of powerlessness (low personal mastery) was associated with heavier drinking and drinking problems. Seeman and his associates also found that powerlessness itself was not associated with substantive complexity and other conditions of work, most of which were subjective reactions to the job (satisfaction with the intrinsic qualities of work, overall job satisfaction, and occupational striving or commitment).

He offers suggestions for further research on this issue, but he remains critical of the assumptions underlying EAPs. His concluding observations consider alternative control strategies to deal more effectively with employed people with drinking problems.
