PFA Goes Global: Innovations in Capacity Building (poster presentation)
The Psychological First Aid: Guide for Field Workers was released in 2011 (WHO, WTF, WVI), and facilitation materials in 2013. Since then, the resources have been translated into various languages and adapted for a range of contexts and target groups. This poster provides and overview of existing PFA resources, including adaptations for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and PFA for Children (Save the Children International). It also describes new formats and initiatives for capacity building and information and skills dissemination through e-learning platforms, regional webinars and SMS messages during crisis events.
