I am very happy and satisfied with the course program. In fact, I am excited to apply what I have learned and also looking forward to enroll in another course. Thank you for this learning opportunity!
this opened my mind towards intervention needs in a catastrophic event. something like this is required more than ever now. the content of the course was very good and thorough. very nicely explained.

Interesting course and well-taught. The discussion forums were unnecessary in my opinion since it seemed as though many were not meaningfully engaged. Glad I took the course, it's relevant to the work I do in my field of student affairs and higher education.

I am very satisfied and happy with the course. Although I took more time to complete than the expected because of my semester exam, this course has shown me what is truly needed to help those who are badly traumatized by the pandemic .Thank you Prof Everly.

This course taught me to have basic knowledge important to respond to any disaster situation and help people who need it most.
The videos you used as an example were very helpful to me and I think it's great that it's not just theory and includes practice.

As the global pandemic continues, I expect the information in this course to benefit me personally (self-care) and professionally (establishing rapport both with coworkers and clients). The format is very user-friendly and great for self-directed training.

Very helpful especially for non medical professionals. It made me realize that some of the things I a doing during disasters is already PFA and that I am helping someone overcome something they might not even be aware of. More Courses Dr Everly. Thank you.

The techniques, especially on rapport and reflective listening are very helpful for use in every day life and quite useful in my profession. I'm a writer and I interview people. These techniques will help me become a more active and compassionate listener.

As a medical professional (PA-C), most of the information was a review, but very needed as a refresher. I also appreciate the fact that to provide PFA, my medical background is not to be utilized as that is not the intent in this role. Kudos and thank you!

Not what I expected when I signed up, however I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of the course. It was easy enough to follow, engaging and rewarding. I now have a real drive to help those in a real life crisis, potentially changed my career focus!

the modules are well-organized, the slides are neat and informative, the transcriptions are accurate, the lecturer is effective in knowledge-sharing, the simulations are also very helpful in giving students the idea on how to conduct the RAPID model of PFA

Absolutely loved this course. As someone who seems to have people flock to me for advice, I felt it was really important to learn a little bit more about how to properly help them and even assess thei need for possible psychological help. This was perfect!

One of the most fantastic courses I have ever learned in the field of Psychology. This course makes us realize that how crucial First Aid is in the field of Psychology. Thank you so much Coursera and Johns Hopkins University for the wonderful opportunity.

This is a course that give a background in intervention to help those in need. This is not an expert level class, but one that we need in this age of violence. The chances that we will be exposed to a violent or disastrous event in the nation is too high.

Fantastic course! An eye-opener for individuals most especially to those who are in the customer service and social welfare unit. This course is people-centric and, to my mind, needs to be included in every organization's training seminars and/or courses.

Great introduction and very similar to what I am doing as a Coach, albeit in a different context. Nonetheless, I was able to draw parallel to the knowledge and information taught in this course and it has sparked an interest in wanting to dive in deeper.

I loved how Dr George did not just teach our heads from his head, but he taught our hearts from his heart. Him being in this field for 40 years definitely enriches his wisdom and it is a real privilege to be able to be trained by him on this life skill.

Very helpful information. The instructor served as a role model for delivery and compassion. The videos (Wrong way followed by the right way) were very useful. Wish that the examples included crises of lesser magnitude than a raging fire or a hurricane.

Excellent training program. Short & Specific
For the event videos (the videos that showcase the affected people and the experience of the first responders), it would be great if there could be sub-titles included, as the audio is not clear and audible.

that was a very informative course and I encourage every medical practised trainee to complete it, whether he works in psychological department or elsewhere, very lucid and please keep us updated with these topics which are related to the medical field.

O curso é muito bom. Tanto pelo conteúdo, que atualmente quando lemos sobre, dificilmente encontramos algo tao denso, tao completo, quanto pela didática, a forma clara de explicar cada termo, exemplos e simulações. Parabéns! Irei sempre indicar o curso.

I learned a lot about how to aproach and help people in need. I am a very socially awkward person , but this course taught me that my small contribution can have a larger impact on others life, which is rewarding for sure . Thank you Dr. George Everly.

An excellent starter course in psychological first aid. Great for those who are looking to explore a career in counseling and would like to begin volunteering as a psych first aid-er to get an idea of what working in the mental health field looks like.

This course is very informative. Even though I am already working in his field, I still learned lots of new ideas and techniques from this course. The simulation is great and fun. Thank you Dr. George S. Everly of John Hopkins University and Coursera.

Excellent course with simulations of how to do it right vs what not to do. Friendly instructor. Good for all levels. Clearly thought out and applicable model. Should be used as the standard in disaster preparation for communities! Highly recommend. :)
