About the Programme
When faced with individuals in psychological distress, we may not know how to best respond, despite our best intentions. Given the high stakes and heavy workload, individuals in the legal industry may come across peers and clients experiencing psychological breakdowns due to work or personal crises. In such situations, the individual may require immediate psychosocial support to regain a sense of control over themselves - be it at work as a lawyer, or as a client in an on-going legal battle.
Psychological First Aid (PFA) provides a brief, supportive, and practical first response to those in immediate emotional distress. It serves as a “band-aid” until the distressed individual is able to seek further help and resources to address his/her psychological needs. Come join us in this 1-hr webinar to learn:
(i) how to identify signs of psychological distress in individuals;
(ii) basic skills which you can employ to help the individual cope with feelings of fear, trauma and stress brought on by emergencies,
(iii) when to refer for more specialised psychological help.
*this 1-hr webinar is for informational purposes only, and does not constitute a full PFA training.
**Participants are expected to switch on their video camera for this session.
