Introduction to Psychological First Aid: Supporting Individuals in Distress

October 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDT

Free

Stress, grief, loss, and past traumas have a powerful impact on a person’s ability to cope in the wake of a traumatic event. As service providers, we need to be prepared to support the individuals that we serve – and one another – through challenging times.

Over the past two decades, a comprehensive analysis of the traditional Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD-CISM) model commonly used by First Responders has highlighted some potentially harmful consequences of the post-event debriefing components of the protocol. Best practice recommendations now suggest that this element be replaced Psychological First Aid (PFA). This introductory webinar will teach participants the basics of PFA and provide strategies for supporting ourselves and others through difficult times.
