UNU-IIGH will be organizing a Trainer of Trainer (ToT) Workshop on Psychological First Aid (PFA) in Kuala Lumpur, over 3 days in September.
This is a follow-up to the earlier 3-hour basic training on Psychological First Aid workshop, held from 10th and 13-16th February 2017, which was led by Professor Atsuro Tsutsumi from Kanazawa University. It was apparent that there is a lot of interest from many quarters in learning about the PFA; a reflection of the growing recognition on the importance of addressing/managing mental health immediately following a crisis, disaster or any disturbing event.
The Psychological First Aid (PFA) was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) together with other international agencies. PFA involves humane, supportive and practical help to fellow human beings suffering from serious crises events. Anyone may, at some time, be in a position to help others who have experienced an extremely distressing event. PFA is a method to support people in ways that respect their dignity, culture and abilities. PFA has been widely implemented during the East Japan Earthquake, Haiti, Africa, among others.
