Terms and How it Works

 Welcome to HandoutsPlus.com.



We offer professionally authored handouts and tip sheets on workplace wellness topics and supervisor skills, reducing risk, improving employees assistance program functioning, and helping employees be healthy, happy, and productive.

All tip sheets at HandoutsPlus.com are sold with three formats, two of which are editable, MS Publisher, MS Word with Graphics, and a PDF.

Some tip sheets have corresponding audio visual products you may purchase. The products include the tip sheet module (so don't purchase both.)

This symbol (above) will indicate to you that a corresponding audio visual product exists and link to it will be included in the description. This means a PowerPoint, MP4 Video, Web Course, and DVD/Disc for a DVD Player (mailed to you) is available. If you purchase these formats, including the Web course, they are yours to keep. There are no licensing fees, renewal fees.

Minor restrictions are described below that include not reselling tip sheets or displaying tip sheets or other products on unprotected web pages visible to anyone on the World Wide Web. (Sort of obvious, but we had to mention it.)

Web courses are fully self-contained and will upload to any Web site. You own them completely. You do not link to our server in order to operate them. This is especially cool. We can also brand and customize them anyway you wish. Contact us for more information.

Fact sheets are written and produced by licensed mental health professionals, workforce management experts, and employee assistance professionals. Each is written to HandoutsPlus.com standards for simplicity, accuracy, and insight with actionable and effective content that delves a deeper to give the reader more value. Our tip sheets average 600 words, while other tip sheets found on the internet usually have only 300 words or less.

All tip sheets are downloadable links except for the Master Library Product that includes all tip sheets.

Contact us if you need a download link reactivated. Generally, we only permit one download to prevent unauthorized use.

When tip sheets are displayed on a Web site, you agree to not post them openly in a way that would allow anyone on the Internet to access them.

We recommend a password or at least a Web page that is non-indexed so search engines don't show the page where you have displayed tip sheets. Your webmaster or technology staff can assist you. The steps are easy.

 All tip sheets are amendable, editable, and brand-able with your logo/program name. Feel free to use them in this regard. Send or copy and distribute tip sheets to employees, patients, clients, students, family members, community groups, or other individuals who you service or with whom you directly work. 

The copyright mark must remain on tip sheets. If you wish, you can change the existing default that we use ("© HandoutsPlus.com") to this alternate "©DFA Publishing LLC" you may do so. This can be less distracting to your readers.

Free tip sheets we offer may be displayed your web site without password protection and on any unprotected page. If you do so, we request a live link to [ http://handoutsplus.com ] somewhere on your web site--anywhere at all--that the tip sheet is "Courtesy of Handoutsplus.com.” This is not mandatory, but please consider it because it creates "power" on the Internet, and it keeps us stay visible and easily found. This will enable us to produce more free content for you! This live link to HandoutsPlus.com can be small and placed anywhere you wish as long as it is visible to search engines. Talk to the IT folks or your Webmaster.
