Principles of Psychological First Aid

Mental Health & Psychosocial Support

 

Through easy-to-understand scenarios, this free online course details what psychological first aid (PFA) is and is not, how to provide it responsibly, who can provide it, when and where it should be provided, and when someone should be referred for more specialized care. As it walks the learner through the four main principles of PFA—Prepare, Look, Listen and Link—it also spells out the importance of self-care for first responders and others who are helping people in stressful situations.

This free online training is available in English, with French, Spanish, and Arabic versions coming soon.
