COURSE CONTENT: Psychological First Aid (PFA) is about taking care of yourself – your thoughts, feelings, and emotions when you have experienced stress, crisis, or trauma – and then being there for family, friends, and community when they are having difficulty coping. Learn how to anticipate stress and crisis whenever possible and equip yourself with the skillset to practice self-care and to provide care for others during particularly challenging times. Unlike mental health first aid, which trains people to help someone during a mental health emergency, Red Cross Psychological First Aid teaches you how to build up resiliency to stress and establish coping strategies for stress and trauma. This course is designed for anyone seeking a certification in Psychological First Aid. We highly recommend this course for people working with those with mental health conditions, those with family members who’ve experienced trauma, those who’ve experienced trauma and wish to find more resources, and for any group looking for an excellent team building and morale boosting experience for their workplace. This more substantive and flexible curriculum helps you gain a deeper understanding of the Red Cross Look, Listen, Link, Live model – this means having awareness that there is a problem, listening to yourself or others, and linking to resources in your community so you can live fully. You will also learn Psychological First Aid using the principle of Do No Harm, which refers to the unintentional harm that may be caused to those who are meant to benefit from your intervention. This course is provided as an in-person classroom format (12 hours) or as a blended online and in-person classroom format (90 minutes online and seven hours in class). The time spent in class gives you and your fellow learners the opportunity to connect with the instructor, who will help you adapt the course to your needs and local context. The instructor guides all learners safely through the course material. This also gives you the opportunity to learn Psychological First Aid as a group, alongside peers and classmates, building upon one another’s ideas, questions, and examples. The course uses case-based learning and includes the latest evidence from the international community. Course Location/Location details/Times: - Course is at 440 Wilsey Road, Suite 104, Fredericton Industrial Park. - The course runs 9AM-3PM. The Psychological First Aid course certificates expire three years from the date of issue.
