Garfield County SRT Psychological First Aid Course

Aug 10, 2019

Psychological First Aid is the "acute intervention of choice" when responding to the psychosocial needs of children, adults, and families affected by disaster and terrorism. Developed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and the National Center for PTSD, with contributions from other individuals involved in coordinating and participating in disaster response, Psychological First Aid is designed to reduce the initial distress caused by traumatic events and to foster short- and long-term adaptive functioning and coping.

This will be held on August 10th, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at the Garfield County Health Department. Lunch will not be provided, but you will be given time to take a lunch break. Please sign up as your RSVP.

Flyer to come.

The target audience for this training is MRC volunteers who are mental health providers, public health professionals, healthcare professionals, first responders, clergy, and other professionals who may be providing humanitarian services immediately post-disaster.
