Psychological first aid: Guide for field workers

Download PDF

This guide was developed in order to have widely agreed upon psychological first aid
materials for use in low and middle income countries. The information we have given
here is a model only. You will need to adapt it appropriately to the local context and the
culture of the people you will help.

This guide – endorsed by many international agencies – reflects the emerging science
and international consensus on how to support people in the immediate aftermath of
extremely stressful events.
