Course Description

Psychological First Aid (PFA) is an emerging intervention that can be used during the immediate response phase of any critical incident or disaster. The primary objectives of PFA are to promote safety, create calm, connect to others, self-efficacy and instill hope.  By completing this training, participants will be able to: recognize opportunities to use PFA, demonstrate active listening skills, normalize psychological reactions as appropriate, teach stress management techniques, recognize adaptive coping versus maladaptive coping, identify sources of interpersonal support and use crisis communication techniques with individual disaster survivors and disaster workers.
