The Effect of Psychological First Aid Training on Knowledge and Understanding about Psychosocial Support Principles: A Cluster-Randomized Controlled Trial
Psychological first aid (PFA) is a WHO-recommended approach to helping people affected by an emergency, disaster, or other adverse event.
The study, a cluster-randomized controlled trial led by War Trauma Foundation, systematically evaluated the approach to providing humane, supportive and practical help to people who have suffered serious crisis events.
This article, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, demonstrates that PFA training improved acquisition and retention of knowledge and understanding of appropriate psychosocial responses and skills in providing support to individuals exposed to acute adversity.
