Psychological
First Aid is defined by John Hopkins University as, "the provision of basic
psychological care in the short-term aftermath of a traumatic incident." 

These
incidents can be severe weather or fires, violent events, or any other crisis
that affects the community.

As
librarians, we often encounter members of our communities directly after an
event or in some cases during one. 

As we are not medical professionals, this
webinar is adapted to help guide librarians with appropriate conversations and
resources.

In
this webinar, we will:

·        

Learn
what Psychological First Aid is and why it matters,

·        

Basic
and advanced reactions the population may have to a crisis,

·        

Develop
appropriate vocabulary and communication skills for aftermath of a crisis,

·        

Identify
when someone needs help that you are unable to provide and how to follow up,


·        

Understand
the importance of self-care.

This webinar is
recommended for librarians or managers who develop emergency response or
preparedness procedures.
