TELL Japan

Disaster Relief & PFA

TELL collaborates with NGOs

After the devastating events of March 11th, 2011, TELL worked tirelessly to provide counseling, support, information and resources to people in need in an effort to meet the dramatic increase in mental health needs in Japan.

Working with International Medical Corp., TELL provided state-of-the-art Psychological First Aid (PFA) training to many NGOs and support organizations working with affected people. Much of this work was made possible thanks to financial support from International Medical Corps, AmeriCares, and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).

サイコロジカル・ファーストエイド(PFA)

サイコロジカル・ファーストエイド(PFA)とは、災害に巻き込まれた人々を現状以上に傷つけることなく、安心・安全でポジティブな環境回復を促す心理的支援方法をいいます。受講者はPFA研修を通して話の聞きとり方、ストレスの対処法、必要な情報や支援へのつなげ方、そして支援の効率を維持する為に支援者自身のセルフケアについて学びます。 

TELLは海外NGOとの協働で、被災地の支援をする様々な団体を対象としたサイコロジカルファーストエイド(PFA)の研修を大震災直後から実施しました。また、PFAが今後も継続して行われていくよう、PFA研修参加者を対象にPFA トレーナー養成研修を行いました。支援者を対象とした心理的サポートサービスは、International Medical Corps、アメリカ・ユダヤ人共同配給委員会(JDC)とAmeriCaresからの助成金を受けて無償で提供されました。
