Psychological First Aid Training and Support for Ukrainian Refugees

After the devastating events of March 11, 2011, TELL worked with the International Mecial Corp., to provide and develop Psychological First Aid (PFA) training for Japan. TELL trained numerous NGOs and support organizations working with affected people following the Tohoku disaster and continues to offer this training to communities and businesses across Japan. Psychological First Aid training is a proven method of ensuring appropriate support reaches those in need when emergencies and disasters strike and has been rolled out in Japan as best practice following disasters. 

In April TELL we be offering two free online trainings to the community. In particular, we are looking to train people who speak Ukrainian or Russian and are interested in supporting refugees within Japan.  The course equips learners in developing a personal understanding of the effects of stress, loss, trauma, and grief on others, with an emphasis on self-care. 

The training will cover the following topics: 

  • What is psychological first aid?
  • How do emergencies impact mental health?
  • The psychological first aid stages: Prepare, Look, Listen, Link
  • Supporting yourself and others
  • Example scenario

Training Dates:

April 14th – from 13:00 – 17:00 

April 23rd 13:00 – 17:00
