Save the Children Psychological First Aid Training

The Psychological First Aid Training Manual for Child Practitioners (PFA), developed in 2013, aims to develop skills and competences of Save the Children staff, partners, and professionals in reducing the initial distress of children who have recently been exposed to a traumatic event.

In 2017, after feedback from partners and practitioners, the PFA one day programme manual was produced as a condensed version of the original two-day training. In addition to this material, the PFA II was developed as a supplement to the original PFA. It provides advice for non-psychologists, based on field experience, research and the latest theories on child trauma, resilience and recovery.
