Psychological First Aid

About the course: 

This course equips learners in developing a personal understanding of the effects of stress, loss, trauma
and grief on others, with emphasis on self-care and personal protection. Learners will be introduced to
the Red Cross Look, Listen, Link, Live model – a resiliency-building approach to emotional, psychological,
and social wellbeing that teaches learners how to support themselves and others to cope with the
effects of various types of stress. The course uses primarily case-based learning and includes the latest
evidence from the international community.
While mental health first aid programs teach how to help someone experiencing a mental health
emergency, Red Cross Psychological First Aid is a resiliency-based program for everyone that offers
prevention and coping strategies for dealing with different types of stress resulting from various types of
trauma.
