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.

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.

I thought the course covered a lot of material.
I would like to have been presented with more psychological background on the critical steps in the program.

Es un curso muy bien estructurado con muchas herramientas que incitan al alumno a seguir adelante, me encantaron las simulaciones donde aprendes la mejor técnica para manejar una crisis , ya que hay una simulación de lo que no se debe de hacer y una de lo que si.

This was a very informative course: the content was compact however, he presentation and delivery was well-paced. If there is an advanced level I would definitely be interested. In the mean time I would recommend this information to my friends and colleagues.

This is perfect for beginners. As I knew A little about this topic in a more common way, this systematic scientific way prove to be far more efficient than other models used in psychological counselling. I liked the R-A-P-I-D model of Johns Hopkins University.

Very useful introductory course to the PFA. Really well explained, with lot of emphasis on keypoints. Very enriching for psychologists, as it shows us a different way of acting than we would do in normal conditions. It seems well structured and shows validity.
