Psychological First Aid
PFA has been recommended by the World Health Organization, the US Institute of Medicine, and the International Red Cross. PFA may be thought of as the most fundamental aspect of applied crisis intervention and disaster mental health. This course is designed to introduce participants to the basic knowledge and intervention techniques associated with the practice of PFA. In addition, this information can serve as the essential platform upon which more advanced individual and group crisis and disaster mental health interventions can be built. These skills will also prove useful in other specialized training such as hostage negotiations.
Completion of “Psychological First Aid” and receipt of a certificate indicating full attendance (7 Contact Hours) qualifies as a class in ICISF’s Certificate of Specialized Training Program.
