The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of our lives in unprecedented ways. For many, the risk for trauma exposure is high including those who are essential workers, in particular those in the healthcare space, and those who have family and friends who they have lost as a result of the virus. This webinar held on April 29, 2020 offered practical strategies rooted in Psychological First Aid (PFA), an evidence-based approach for PTSD prevention and helping people effectively cope in the immediate aftermath of a trauma. The goal of this webinar was to support clinicians to feel prepared to navigate the potential increase in trauma exposure that their clients may soon be, or already are, experiencing.
