Psychological First Aid (PFA) is an online educational module designed to teach first responders ways to reduce initial distress, and to foster short and long-term adaptive functioning in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. This 6-hour interactive course teaches individuals new to disaster response, as well as seasoned practitioners, the core goals of PFA. It features innovative activities, video demonstrations, and tips from the nation’s trauma experts and survivors. PFA online also offers a Learning Community where participants can share about experiences using PFA in the field, receive guidance during times of disaster, and obtain additional resources and training. This activity has been designated for a maximum of 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and has 6 CE credits available through the National Association of Social Workers, American Psychological Association, California Board of Behavioral Sciences, and the Board of Registered Nursing.
