Event description

Description

This 6-hour course, which includes didactic presentation and group participation, is an evidence-informed approach for assisting children, adolescents, adults, and families in the immediate aftermath of disaster and terrorism. Instructors will introduce Psychological First Aid (PFA), including how and when it can be used, as well as core actions to practice. PFA is designed to reduce the initial distress caused by traumatic events, and to foster short- and long-term adaptive functioning.
Principles and techniques of PFA meet four basic standards:

  • Consistent with research evidence on risk and resilience following trauma
  • Applicable and practical in field settings
  • Appropriate to developmental level across the lifespan
  • Culturally informed

This 6-hour course meets requirements toward the 40-hour recertification program required for certified administrators as well as CE credits through CAMFT. The course is available individually, but for those who complete our 5-course series, ITC will issue a Certificate in Trauma-informed Care.
