A wonderful course with clear explanations and case scenarios to help reinforce learning. I was truly engaged throughout the course and felt like I learned a lot more than I anticipated when going in.
A very helpful course and full of practical information for persons interfered with disaster relief and crisis intervention as this course has a well- planned syllabus and really informative vignettes
Exceptionally, interactive, it kind of feels like a game sometimes with the situation. Psychological First Aid needs to be known and used through out the world to stabilize or minimize the acute stress of a person who has been through a traumatic event such as disasters.

Wonderfully put together. I felt that it was the right amount of information and the interactions were great. Dr George Everly is a very engaging speaker and is able to keep your interest through it all. I will be using the subject learned in my role in our community

As a psychology student, I gained a lot of knowledge and better understanding by taking this module which I could apply in my daily activities and also my study. Not only for a psychology student, but this could also benefit all the people to understand one's behaviour.
par Saranne D•
Very informative and enjoyable. Forced me to think more about the Who and the Why during and incident. Not everyone is the same and no two people will react the same way. It's made me think about how I shouldn't assume anything but truly LISTEN, empathize and assist.

The course is relatively easy to follow. Learners to grasp the content well with the video scenarios which helps us to better visualise & understand the concepts. This would definitely help in your life, whether in work or personal aspects. May the world be safe & well!

The training was a mind opener! I discovered I actually did not know much about PFA. I feel knowledgeable and empowered. I will be using the notes regularly to to improve on my grasp of PFA. Thank you John Hopkin University for the fantastic delivery of this course.
par Noor R•
I have gained tremendous knowledge from this course and the key element about this course is it is not to challenge psychotherapy and actual psychological diagnostics. Most of the skills are applicable to real life situations (non-crisis) especially the Burnt-out Club.

What makes this course so enjoyable is the way that Dr. Everly presents the content. I learned a lot in a short amount of time and the knowledge I earned, will help me in my current career as a counselor. Thank you Dr. George Everly for making this course so pleasant.

Really interesting lessons, complimented by useful and helpful role-playing like videos. Great if you want a taste of what PFA is if you are a mental health professional. Easy to understand if you do not know the first thing about Psychology, as well. Would definitely
par Emilia D•
It was a pleasure to discover new ways on helping people in their most challenging moments in life. I truly enjoyed the lectures and the "correct" and "incorrect" simulations. I've learned a lot, as my career is not connected with psychology or healthcare. Thank you!
par Nicolette V R•
Really important information but people should be advised that this class teaches us how to respond to people after natural disasters. I was under the impression I would be able to handle all kinds of psychological emergencies but the information and class was great.
par Valerie L H Y•
This course was helpful in teaching techniques for resilience and care, towards both others and yourself. I especially liked the "live" simulations of conversations between the counsellor and the client, where I could see what techniques worked and how to apply them.
par Scott M H•
Although mostly basic information, was a very interesting and practical step-by-step guide to the basic steps of psychological intervention in a crisis situation. I enjoyed Everly's presentation and speaking style, it was easy to understand, practical, and effective.
par Marian E D C•
Very concise. Extremely well done! I am so glad I took this course. Not only did I learn a lot about the needs of others, but also how to take care of myself and to recognize the symptoms of stress. I am sure I will be able to apply these skills in my everyday life.
par Annie B•
The course was conducted in a highly professional and proficient manner. The material was up to date, relevant and consistent with emergency and disaster occurrences. I personally feel proud to have done this course through an international and respected university.
Great University and Excellent Course, The RAPID method is extraordinarily practical for me to explain the mechanism of psychological first aid and take the appropriate measures to decrease the ASD symptom of the police officer who experience lift threatened event.
Thank you for providing this course. The information contained in the course will be very useful in supplementing my trauma intervention training. I'm looking forward to putting the RAPID model to use in my interaction with clients experiencing tragedy and trauma.
par Martina V•
I learned what I desired in a proper manner and in a proper time. I enjoyed the studying materials and I've listened to Geroge S. Everly with much interest. I may suggest this course if you're interested in the thematic even if you have no great English proficiency.

Dr. Everly does a great job of explaining PFA. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and found it useful. The vignettes were a good way to keep my attention while demonstrating how to handle intense emotional situations. I hope to complete more courses by Johns Hopkins.

Totally love this course. This course help me to gain more knowledge. But, in my opinion, i hope in the module self care can add on more stimulation about self care like relaxation, how to breathing and so on. Again, thank you again to this course and Prof. Thanks.

par Hannah G•
Very relevant for anyone in helping professions, but who are not mental health care providers. The instructor's videos are engaging, and the simulation videos give you a clear sense of what and what not to do when conducting a psychological first aid intervention.
par Cheryl C B•
Excellent course, providing a very clear overview of PFA and real-life, practical techniques to easily employ when responding to a crisis as a first responder. I recommend this course to everyone! These are real life skills that may come in handy in your own life.
