Introduction to Verbal First Aid ™
Verbal First Aid ™(VFA) uses words and images to set a course for recovery and resilience. Judith Simon Prager, PhD, has been teaching the protocol of Verbal First Aid™ from 2001. The protocol is the most simple yet the most powerful first action you can take at the scene of an accident, crisis or emergency. The protocol is taught to firefighters, emergency medical personnel, doctors, nurses and police officers around the world.
The right words said in the right way at the right time, when shock, pain and fear are all around, can shift the perception and feelings of the victim to allow healing and circumvent the impulse towards a traumatic memory or PTSD.
Judith Prager, presented a workshop on VFA™ at the Intergenerational Trauma Conference 2021 which so inspired a number of delegates, that they asked for more information about it to be spread to more people on the front line.
This webinar is not just for firefighters, emergency medical personnel, doctors, nurses and police officers, but also parents, counsellors, carers and teachers. Choose the module that suits your needs or listen to them all.
This workshop was recorded for the Intergenerational Trauma Conference in January 2021
