The Psychological First Aid workshop is a 3-hour program and aims to provide basic skills for helping people affected by a disaster.
Participants will learn how to provide human social support to people impacted by a disaster or critical event and aid Community Recovery.
An important aim of psychological first aid is to build people’s capacity to recover. Psychological first aid supports recovery by helping people to identify their immediate needs and their strengths and abilities to meet these needs.
This session has been funded by the National Disaster Relief Fund of the Uniting Church in Australia and the Target Bushfire Relief Appeal through their charity partner UnitingCare Australia and is at no cost to the Community of the Merimbula area.
