This is the first of five short videos from the Psychological First Aid: A Minnesota Community Supported Model training course, hosted on the Minnesota Department of Health’s YouTube website. It contains the same content as Course ID 1050404 found on the University of Minnesota’s learning management website, just delivered in a different way.
The learning objectives for this course are listed in the “About” tab below.
Once you launch this course, you will be brought to the MDH YouTube web page and the five short videos will play successively to complete the full 45 minute course.
This course was designed as an overview for MRC volunteers, hospital personnel, disaster responders, and first-responders, to the concepts and applications of psychological first aid as it applies to assisting survivors and fellow responders impacted by a disaster or emergency event, particularly in the field during a response. This training may also be useful to other individuals when dealing with a personal crisis situation in their family, community or work place.
