First Responder Seminar-Training-Workshop

Detective Monica Only
As La Hacienda continues to grow in understanding and development of a multi-dimensional approach to effectively treating first responders, experts in the field are being brought in to train with our treatment team. Criminal Investigations Detective Monica Only of the City of Orlando Police Department will be conducting a hands-on seminar/training on Thursday, November 7th on campus at La Hacienda Treatment Center in Hunt, Tx.

This course is designed to provide an understanding of first responders and various dimensions of behavior that can ultimately lead to suicide. Goals of the workshop will include:

 .  Effectively identifying a first responder.
 .  Successfully understanding the multiple job facets of a first responder.
 .  Understanding the psychology/behaviors of a first responder.
 .  Understanding the statistical analysis regarding substance abuse, addiction,
     PTSD, depression and suicide among first responders.

La Hacienda is so blessed to have such a seasoned treatment team who remain teachable and grateful to have such individuals like Detective Only who will take time from her busy schedule to share her expertise and carry such an important message with her.
