Psychological First Aid – PFA (Our Self-Paced Online Course)





$100 (scholarships available)

Psychological first aid (PFA)  is a peer based process. Professionals can use PFA, but it really is designed for use by anyone who knows how to listen well. Whether we’re professionals or not, it is what to do when you’re in the midst of a disaster or trauma or something. This process replaced Critical Incidence Debriefing and relies on our natural healing processes.  Like so many aspects around healing our inner wounds, PFA is about learning to listen in the right way, in a deep way, in a human way. This PFA course will revolve around listening skills.  It’s easy to practice and it’s easy to share.

In this course we practice evidence-based techniques that support people in times of crisis, through the introduction and four modules. The modules include short videos, downloadable activity sheets, and links to open-source manuals and other documents.
