Psychological First Aid from “good idea” to “good practice” applying PFA correctly
Psychological First Aid (PFA) is currently the recognised as evidence based practice following exposure to any potentially traumatic event. Worldwide there is currently more than twenty PFA models available – most of which has been developed and implemented by field workers following natural disasters.
The application of PFA within organisations is currently a common practice, yet no research has been conducted into the effectiveness of current models within the workplace mental health industry.
During this session you will be exposed to an overview of current psychological first aid models, the application of these models within the Australasian work environment as well as the utilisation of evidence informed practice to improve the delivery of trauma informed services to organisations during critical incidents and disasters.
