About the Session

TARGET AUDIENCE: ALL SCHOOL STAFF AND PARENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND

Psychological First Aid (PFA) is considered to be the first stage intervention during a disaster or emergency. During a pandemic, how we respond looks different but the principles are the same.

PFA Online Training allows responders to provide support over the phone to individuals that may be quarantined, in self-isolation, or practicing physical distancing in order to prevent the spread of a pandemic.

Research shows that people recover better after a disaster or emergency if they:

  • feel safe and connected to other people
  • have social, physical, and emotional support
  • feel like they can help themselves and their community

The 2 hour interactive online training will cover essential tools, key PFA action principles, and self-care for responders.
