The Psychological First Aid 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. The course uses primarily case-based learning and includes the latest evidence from the international community. Participants will learn the Look, Listen, Link, Live cycle, and will apply the cycle to their self-care plans, and their case study.
