Psychological First Aid


As it is known, Psychological First Aid (PFA) is an evidence-informed approach for assisting all the population in the aftermath of a critical event. PFA ameliorates symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) and prevents post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

The main goal of this course is to train the students in the application of PFA on both massive and daily emergencies. That enables them to become a community health worker prepared to cope with highly stressful situations everywhere. After the training, the students will be able to understand why a crisis has an impact on persons, families, and communities. They will also be able to boost both, the coping skills, and the resilience.  

Courses generally have little or no prerequisite knowledge required for a given topic, however if students face any doubts, we recommend they contact course professors to clarify.
