I find this course very useful. Even if it is a method intended to help mostly people from crisis, I personally think that it can also be adopt into our daily life. The teacher makes each topics easier to understand. The situation vignettes also aid in the learning process.

This course has been really helpful. Now is a time when I think PFA can be effectively applied to people after this pandemic or even during it. It is not a detailed course but I think it will help us enough to help us to be able to help others and make an effective change!!
Great Course to get to know the basics of psychological first aid. with a very well designed structure and some good videos to get a deeper understanding and impression of the practical part.
More over it also gives some advice for selfcare which I consider as very important

Curso relevante e interessante. Ensinado por um dos maiores especialistas no assunto, este curso tem como objetivo ensinar as ferramentas básicas para ações na área. Há vídeos teóricos e de simulações de caso que ilustram bem o emprego dos conceitos ensinados em cada área.
I easily understand the lectures, especially with the examples of what to do and what no to do in a psychological first aid. This course will definitely help me as a undergraduate student majoring in psychology and also others in need of psychological first aid. Thank you.
