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
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.

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.

Thank you and hope we get to learn more from Prof. Everly.

This was a very useful course to me! It would be even better if it included also some simulations of responding to individuals needing the next level of care, and additional examples of phrasing for conducting such escalations.

This course is really well done! It's really organized and I love that the last week of the course is about self-care because even though our priorities are our patients, we often forget that our mental health is important too.

There is always something that you never know when you can use them. However, things really happen all the time. Knowing something is really helpful. That's why I would highly recommand this course to non-psy major students.
