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.

Although heavily/entirely focused on disaster response, this training is partially-applicable to general use in responding to those in need of psychological first aid. The course is well laid out and the lectures are great.
par Stephanie M S•
The information was helpful and validating. The delivery of the information seemed encroached by the need to boast personal success and establish prominence in academia. All in all, the material triumphed over its delivery.
