UPCOMING MEETING SCHEDULE:

January 24, 2020
Supporting Families and Friends of Law Enforcement in the Workplace & in Therapy
Presenter: Tia Brisco

Learning Objectives:
Explore the main issues and concerns of families and friends of law enforcement
Identify the most common clinical themes in therapy
Practice key ways to support them in the workplace and in therapy

January 9th was National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Most people recognize the sacrifices and risks that come with the job when officers put their life on the line every day. However, we often fail to realize that their families and friends also make sacrifices and can feel isolated in their workplaces. All too frequently, friends and spouses of law enforcement go un-noticed until tragedy happens. In this seminar, we are going to discuss increasing awareness and emotional support for family of law enforcement. We will cover the most common issues that they have to face and how Human Resources and counselors can best address the needs and the concerns.

Tia Brisco is a licensed marriage and family therapist, specializing in multi-cultural based treatment and working with children in under-served communities.  She currently operates a private practice in Northridge, CA, where she provides child/adolescent therapy, family therapy, and treatment for college students. Before becoming a therapist, Tia taught special education preschool for six years, where her love for diversity and public speaking fostered. Tia continues to provide trainings and workshops throughout Los Angeles County to assist clinicians in working with diverse populations.
