Spiritual and Psychological First Aid
This four-day evening course endeavors to build helping skills and a better understanding of the unique role of the crisis responder, and trains participants in the fundamental principles of spiritual and psychological first aid (SPFA). Care provided in SPFA may be defined as practical, compassionate, supportive presence designed to mitigate acute distress, assess needs, provide essential supportive care, and link with other support systems as needed for ongoing spiritual, emotional, and mental health care. This course is designed for anyone who wants to enhance their skills in providing SPFA to survivors of loss, disaster, emergency, trauma, and crisis setting, especially as Emergency Crisis Chaplains. Participants must be present for all four evenings to get the certificate and complete the course.
