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
