About this event

Psychological First Aid (PFA) is an evidence-based framework that can be used as a part of Critical Incident Response (CIR) to helping people affected by a traumatic event, critical incident, emergency or disaster. PFA helps to reduce initial distress and assists people to cope better in the days and weeks following a traumatic experience.

This practical workshop will also sensitively touch on topic such as suicide/self-harm and closed with strategies for self-care and building resilience.
