Introduction to Psychological First Aid
by Mr Joshua Koh

About the seminar:
Psychological First Aid has become a popular skill for many schools and corporate organizations. This course focuses on providing participants with a basic understanding of what healthy emotional supporting looks like, as well as the dos and don’ts when supporting peers who are in a heightened state of distress. This session will share how to identify signs of someone in distress and offer initial help. Participants will be learning how to share care using active listening (verbal and non-verbal communication), and be a peer supporter at the workplace.
