This six-hour online course is an advanced module on Psychological First Aid for Schools (PFA-S). PFA-S is a specialized modality of conducting psychosocial support in the school setting. The aim of the on-line course is to equip mental health professionals (psychologists, psychometricians, guidance counselors), teachers, and allied professionals in dealing with emergencies that can happen in school or in the community. This course will provide skills specific to administrators, faculty members, school mental health professionals, and support staff when dealing with the crisis in schools.
At the end of the course, the learners will have the knowledge and skills to deal with students, faculty, or staff affected by the crisis that occurs in the school, or when providing psychological first aid in the school setting. Specifically, the learners will be able to conduct PFA-S when necessary. The learners will also acquire skills in referral for individuals who have specialized needs for further intervention.
The course is very helpful and indeed enriching to my profession as guidance director in the college and at the same time SHS principal.
This will serve as our guide in strengthening our programs in the guidance center as well as the institution so every employee becomes an advocate of the program and saves life.
