Webinar: PFA – between evidence and practice

October 26 @ 11:00 - 12:00

Psychological first aid (PFA) is often delivered to people recovering from the adverse impact of a disasters or traumatic events. The past decade has witnessed a boom in PFA models and manuals. But there are few high-quality studies to support the effectiveness of PFA.

Why is the evidence-base for PFA so limited? What are the challenges for conducting research on PFA?
This webinar will seek to address these questions and is presented by

– Eliza Cheung, Clinical psychologist, Hong Kong Red Cross and Technical Advisor, PS Centre
– Koen van Praet, Clinical psychologist, Belgian Red Cross (Flanders)
– Ferdinand Garoff, Psychologist, University of Tampere

The webinar takes place on Thursday 26 October at 11:00 CET (UTC+2). Join the webinar via your browser:
