Stress First Aid for Champions

July 22, 2021
This training will help site champions review and prepare to implement Stress First Aid (SFA), a coworker support and self-care model for healthcare providers. Stress First Aid is a longitudinal set of supportive actions that have been designed to help those in high-risk settings improve self-care and assist each other in reducing the negative impacts of stress. This model recognizes that disasters and “critical incidents” are not the only stressors that people face and takes into account that stress is often ongoing and cumulative, resulting from multiple sources. SFA also acknowledges that people in these contexts are often resistant to help-seeking for many reasons, such as stigma, lack of resources, and cultural factors. Therefore, SFA is designed to be attentive to multiple sources of stress, and to be practical, flexible, and tailored to the specific styles and needs of those involved.

Target Audience
