Psychological First Aid (PFA) and PFA Training
SBRN offers Psychological First Aid (PFA) as its primary response to those who have experienced a traumatic event and request our assistance. PFA is an evidence-based method of providing culturally sensitive psychological support to those who have experienced trauma. It aims to reduce initial distress and help foster long-term adaptive coping skills needed to move toward resilience.
PFA was developed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and the National Center for PTSD. Learn more on their website.
SBRN offers ongoing PFA training to community members, organizations, and businesses that want to develop PFA response teams.
