Brief workshop description:
Psychological First Aid is a supportive behavioral health intervention to assist people in the immediate aftermath of disaster. It is designed to be helpful for a variety of affected audiences and for delivery in diverse settings such as shelters, disaster assistance service centers, field hospitals and other community sites. Basic objectives include calming and orienting emotionally overwhelmed survivors, helping them to articulate immediate needs and concerns, and offering practical assistance to connect survivors as soon as possible to social support networks and community resources.

She is also a volunteer for American Red Cross Disaster Services and is a certified Field Traumatologist.
