This course equips learners in developing a personal understanding of the effects of stress, loss, trauma and grief on others, with emphasis on self-care and personal protection. Learners will be introduced to the Red Cross Look, Listen, Link, Live model – a resiliency-building approach to emotional, psychological, and social well-being that teaches learners how to support themselves and others to cope with the effects of various types of stress. The course uses primarily case-based learning and includes the latest evidence from the international community. Ages: 18+
Note: A 'blended' course includes an online module entitled, 'Psychological First Aid - Self-Care' which must be completed prior to the in-class session. The participant will be given access to this module shortly after registration.
