REMINDER: October 24, 2013 Psychological First Aid Training

Reminder:
Upcoming training in PFAT. 
Keep in mind that psychological first aid is not something for implementation to address disaster and traumatic events within the U.S. but is a practice that should and must be practiced internationally as part of disaster risk reduction planning for the mental health and  well-being of communities.
Think of obtaining training, and courses in your community.

Subject: RAPID Psychological First Aid Training - October 24, 2013
TRAMS
RAPID~PSYCHOLOGICAL FIRST AID

The Johns Hopkins Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center and the DHMH Office of Preparedness and Response are pleased to offer the Johns Hopkins~RAPID Psychological First Aid Workshop. It is a 6-hour, interactive training that provides non-mental health professionals with the concepts and skills associated with Psychological First Aid. Utilizing the RAPID model (Reflective listening, Assessment of needs, Prioritization, Intervention, and Disposition), this specialized training provides perspectives on injuries and trauma that are beyond those physical in nature. Additionally, the RAPID model is readily applicable to public health settings, the workplace, the military, faith-based organizations, mass disaster venues, and even the demands of more commonplace critical events, e.g., dealing with the psychological aftermath of accidents, robberies, suicide, homicide, or community violence.
