Psychological First Aid: Helping Others in Times of Stress

November 19, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A special training opportunity is presented by the Buffalo Jewish Service Corps and the American Red Cross.

Psychological First Aid: Helping Others in Times of Stress will be offered by John Northman, PhD, Red Cross Instructor

Psychological First Aid is a basic level, instructor-led course.  It provides a framework for understanding the factors that affect stress responses in disaster relief workers and the clients they serve. Participants engage in practice exercises and complete a self-review questionnaire. The purpose of this course is to prepare volunteers and American Red Cross workers to provide basic care, comfort and support to people who are experiencing disaster-related stress.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how to recognize the signs of stress in clients, co-workers and themselves
  • Apply psychological first aid principles in providing immediate support to people who may be experiencing stress
  • Describe how to obtain additional mental health support for themselves, co-workers and clients

This course is 3.5 hours in length.  Attendance at the entire course is required to earn a certificate.
