Psychological First-Aid (PFA) is an internationally-recognized, first-stage approach to supporting people who have recently experienced a distressing event such as a disaster, pandemic or emergency.

Evidence shows that people recover better from these experiences if they feel safe, connected, and emotionally supported. PFA focuses on the social and psychological support that people need most after experiencing a distressing event, providing humane and practical assistance in a way that respects dignity, culture, and abilities.

These trainings will help participants to understand the most supportive things to say and do and will provide information about how best to approach disasters, pandemics, and emergency situations to ensure personal safety and the safety of others.
