Introduces the fundamentals of PFA, or Psychological First Aid, to students new to post disaster work. PFA is the practice of recognizing and responding to the mental health of people experiencing crisis-related stress in the short-term aftermath of a disaster. This stress can impact people’s physical, mental, psychological, and spiritual well-being. Explores the ways in which the evidence-based practice of PFA can help people increase their resilience and recover from the impact of psychological trauma. Offers students an opportunity to develop skills for responding in the aftermath of a variety of crises including pandemics, accidents, robberies, suicide, homicide, and community violence.
