In the first video of this two-part series (Principles of Psychological First Aid), Richard Hill looked at the five principles that are the basis for all Psychological First Aid: that is, promoting safety, calmness, self-efficacy, connectedness, and hope.

In this talk, Richard will be putting you into the field: that is, the explorations will take you through the traumatising journey of a family whose members escape a horrific bushfire with their lives and not much else. As the psychological first aider who engages with them, you will get to see on a very personal level how the eight core actions of Psychological First Aid come into play with the survivors they are designed to assist.
