PSYCHOLOGICAL FIRST AID: ADDRESSING MENTAL HEALTH DISTRESS DURING DISASTERS


When people are faced with disaster, intense emotions are often present and appropriate. Psychological First Aid (PFA) can help responders promote an environment of safety, calm, connectedness, self-efficacy, empowerment, and hope. PFA was developed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and the National Center for PTSD, with contributions from individuals involved in disaster research and response. This webinar provides a brief overview of PFA and connects viewers with both online and in-person training resources. This webinar will be broadcast on Wednesday, April 22, at 1 p.m. ET. Closed captioning will be available.
