Psychological First Aid in the Workplace
Critical incident response research in regard to mental health has found that psychological casualties from a given critical incident can be expected to far outnumber physical casualties.
Many people have a long delay between developing a mental health problem and receiving appropriate treatment and support. The longer people delay getting help and support, the more difficult the recovery can be. It is important that people are supported during this time, and the workplace plays a critical role in providing this support, as the supervisor and/or co-worker are more likely to be the person to recongise early signs of mental health problems.
From an organisational perspective, Psychological First Aid in the WorkPlace offers a process of providing a targeted intervention and support to those responsible for managing the critical incident response and/or managing those employees who have been affected by a traumatic incident. Those trained in psychological first aid in the workplace will understand the impacts of trauma, as well as the most effective strategies to help people recover, including ensuring safety, providing emotional comfort and support, and offer practical advice and assistance to address employee’s immediate needs.

Advanced Psychological First Aid (PFA) in the Workplace
Specifically, this advanced program provides individuals and organisations with an in-depth understanding of PFA concepts and evidence-informed practices to improve workplace support for individuals following a traumatic event.
As a participant, you will review and use a targeted PFA model: RAPID-(reflective listening, assessment, prioritisation, intervention and disposition), focusing on the injuries and potential trauma, suicide intervention and the role of compassion and self-care.
This program encompasses five self-paced sections designed for workplaces to improve the organisational response to trauma-related events such as critical incidents or cumulative work duties resulting in trauma.
