I learned a lot from this course, it is really timely because of the Pandemic. I could be able to help and apply PFA to those who are anxious about the current issue and help them ventilate what's on their own mind and somehow re-frame the threat and correct their mis-perception.

I am more than ready to alleviate people’s feelings most especially my students’ should they experience adversities or difficult situations. Thank you so much Coursera, Johns Hopkins University and for the experts who helped me fully understand what Psychological First Aid means.

Excellent introduction to topic,, getting tasks and skills in most helpful order. Using well done interview as model of what to do (and not to do) provides practical examples. Seems to me these skills could be useful in many crisis situations from day-to-day to true disasters.

The Course helps me to assist the person in need. I am working in the school which a lot of the students have their varieties of family background. Some of them experience bullying. The course helps me to create a compassionate and social support culture in the school community.

It was my first class linked with the first aid, and it was really fantastic. I'm an engineer and a manager, so I didn't knew nothing about PFA. Fortunately I applied for this course and it changed a lot. Many thanks to the professor George Everly and his team for their work!!!

I was able to learn a lot of Psychological First Aid in a very short amount of time. George does not waste any of your time, everything he says is succinct and understandable. I really enjoyed this class, and feel much more confident in being a first responder during crisis.

I have learned a lot from this course which I will get to use in the future in case something happened and need social support deployment. I'll be happy to volunteer myself not just to make use of the things I learned but for the main reason to help people in need.

This course give me the understanding how the counseling or empathizing should be like, especially dealing with the people who have a hard problem. But, being patient and calm when dealing this kind of situation is the root key in order to have a smooth flow of conversation.

The course was presented in a very engaging way that's easy to understand with or without a background in psychology. I commend Dr. Everly and the Johns Hopkins university for developing the PFA RAPID model, as this is a skill that I think will benefit anyone who learns it.

I find this course very useful. Even if it is a method intended to help mostly people from crisis, I personally think that it can also be adopt into our daily life. The teacher makes each topics easier to understand. The situation vignettes also aid in the learning process.

This course has been really helpful. Now is a time when I think PFA can be effectively applied to people after this pandemic or even during it. It is not a detailed course but I think it will help us enough to help us to be able to help others and make an effective change!!
Great Course to get to know the basics of psychological first aid. with a very well designed structure and some good videos to get a deeper understanding and impression of the practical part.
More over it also gives some advice for selfcare which I consider as very important

Thank you George for explaining each and every step in a simple but profound way. Simulations were really helpful to understand the essence of the first aid and I found myself several times stopping the video and thinking about the possible ways of supporting and listening.

Extremely practical and helpful for those looking to work in disaster relief situations. As an RN dealing with people who have suffered from war and disaster related injuries, I think this course if very helpful in laying out a logical course of assessment and intervention.

The lectures and videos were engaging and easy to understand. The simulations were very useful in showing the proper way of conducting PFA. The Instructor was an expert, no doubt about that, and very generous in sharing his knowledge and experiences.
Thank you very much!

Curso relevante e interessante. Ensinado por um dos maiores especialistas no assunto, este curso tem como objetivo ensinar as ferramentas básicas para ações na área. Há vídeos teóricos e de simulações de caso que ilustram bem o emprego dos conceitos ensinados em cada área.
I easily understand the lectures, especially with the examples of what to do and what no to do in a psychological first aid. This course will definitely help me as a undergraduate student majoring in psychology and also others in need of psychological first aid. Thank you.

I hope that someday, when I am sitting with the victims of harsh accidents that have shocked them, this course will allow me to be sensitive while I intervene and lend them a hand. Thank you Doctor and the team, for all your support and teachings. It was really insightful.
