Psychological First Aid

Student Health Services, in cooperation with Human Resources and the Division of Public Safety, have partnered together to deliver Psychological First Aid (PFA) training for UConn faculty and staff.  Psychological First Aid is an opportunity to infuse UConn faculty and staff with basic response techniques appropriate after a traumatic incident on campus. When interacting with each other and with students, what is a basic toolkit that individuals might draw upon to respond with compassion? Traumatic incidents are unexpected, and can affect any of us at any time. Psychological First Aid provides the audience with an introduction to response techniques to support each other in the event of a mass traumatic incident.
