Very well designed course. Increasing confidence as well as the presence of mind after learning every module. The quizzes have well-assessed knowledge of MOOC learners. Hats off to the Professor who explained with so much involvement.

I found this online course really great! I really love the Reflective Listening and Self-Care lectures. These lectures taught me how to understand, create an emphatic bond, and appreciate people who are in their darkest moment in life.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and the chance to be more skilled and knowledgeable in PFA. Definitely, going to apply the techniques I've learned to my learners and if circumstances ask for it as well. More power!!!

The course is really good. Having simulation on how not to do and then how correctly to do makes a lot of sense of common mistakes and corrections on it. It has enhanced my skill which i can use it in my professional life..Thank you..

Many Many thanks to Dr. George and Coursera for that I have learned how to behave with people who will go through disasters. It was really meaningful course. My idea has changed now. I feel different.
Thank you. I am proud of Coursera.

Thank you very much for this practical course! It was a great introduction to PFA and clearly explained all the different aspects of the model. I really liked the inclusion of both good and bad examples through the simulation videos!

Even though I am a Clinical Psychologist by profession, this course was extremely helpful in understanding PFA and how it can be used in situations of crisis, where psychotherapy is not an option, and also not helpful. So many thanks
par Marilena D•
I really liked this lesson, for its comprehensive and simple guidance on how to apply Psychological First Aid. The RAPID method is easy to remember and is based to the most important think you can do, listening. Thank you for this!
par Dafne M T•
Really interesting course. In the post Covid era, it would be useful for anyone, as there might be part of our communities having difficulties coping. Thanks for the model; will be keeping it in mind when being part of a relief team.
par Andre J•
Honestly, one of the best units I have taken to date, I thoroughly enjoyed the humanistic nature of the treatment of those who have gone through horrible circumstances and this whole concept was just fascinating from start to finish.
par Suresh K M•

It was an excellent course! In the right lenght with all the useful info. Ideal to help people in acute distress of a disaster, an accident etc. I learned a lot of things, even though I am already a psychologist. I trully recommend!
par Rowena F•
I truly learned a lot from this short course. If you are to take this, you should take it seriously because you will gain a lot and it could be a great consideration in responding to emergencies, especially if you love to volunteer.
par Pitshaporn L•
The content and the context of the course immensely open to a whole new level of conversation and the perspective of the First Aid provider. The knowledge I have learnt as a first responder would hopefully aid those who are in need.
par Ayu P•
It's very insightful. I was majoring in psychology and mostly I work as first counselor for teenagers at risk and most of the time it seems what I learned on school didn't work. Now I know why it didn't work, thanks to this course.
par Onisha C•

Excelente curso. Ideal para iniciar en la comprensión y aplicación de Primeros Auxilios Psicológicos. Está diseñado desde un modelo teórico y con videos prácticas, con ejemplos y contra-ejemplos. No requiere conocimientos previos.
par Lauren W•
The content was clear and well taught. Dr. Everly, the instructor, has a wealth of knowledge that is readily evident. I feel more prepared and confident in approaching others in crisis, both within and outside of a crisis context.
par Susana M G•
Excellent course, excellent expositor and material. Very clear and easy to understand. A course that can always help you, even on a daily basis if we apply some of the topics, like reflective listening, take care of yourself, etc.
par Doyel G•
I really liked the course and benefitted a lot from the course. It was very well planned and well delivered program. I have some amount of field experience in this area, so I could relate and realise how practical every point was.
par Maria P C A•
Excelente curso para que aquellos que no sean profesionales de la salud mental puedan ayudar a otros a afrontar momentos de crisis sobre todo hoy en día que la demanda supera a la capacidad de los profesionales de la salud mental.
par Danica P•
Dr. Everly is right. Even some of those trained in clinical therapy aren't necessarily equipped to be PFA providers. It was an enjoyable, highly informative module. Even without direct engagement, it encourages critical thinking.
