Access Education

This webinar is provided as a collaborative effort between the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) and NAADAC.


Counselors are tasked with managing the clinical needs of patients during this crisis. Psychological First Aid (PFA) provides a set of clinical tools to lessen the intensity and duration of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This presentation will allow participants to explore options to apply PFA to patients receiving treatment during COVID-19. Participants will identify treatment options to meet the ongoing needs of patients after receiving PFA. Participants will also identify ways they can protect themselves from secondary trauma while providing PFA.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to identify evidence-based Psychological First Aid (PFA) responses for people enduring the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Participants will identify how PFA connects to treatment options to during and following the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Participants will create plans to care for themselves while responding to people in crisis.
