Psychological First Aid Training 2015 600

Participants gathered on the campus of AUNE for Psychological First Aid training in October, 2015.

Dr. Barb Andrews, Program Director of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program at AUNE, coordinated the training for 50+ participants through a partnership with the New Hampshire Disaster Behavioral Health Response Team (NH-DBHRT).  Students, faculty, and community members learned basic principles involved in implementing Psychological First Aid in a disaster situation (e.g., bioterrorism, acts of violence, or weather-related disasters).   The goal of the disaster behavioral health response teams is to provide an organized response to individual victims, family members, survivors, or the community affected by critical incidents or disasters.  Dr. Andrews has been instrumental in forming this partnership with NH-DBHRT.
