ABCDE psychological first aid application handbook: For individual and collective crises

This handbook is designed to be used by anyone who provides crisis care and support, without necessarily being a mental health professional (psychologist or psychiatrist). The main objective of this handbook is to guide the application of Psychological First Aid (PFA) in various crisis contexts. The book contains a series of terms related to crisis and psychological trauma that may be useful to readers. Then, the preparatory stage for the implementation of PFA is outlined, followed by PFA step-by-step.

This is a practical guide, so several useful phrases will be found that can help when supporting a person in crisis. Finally, a series of resources for the application of PFA is made available, among which are links to websites that seek to help in the understanding of psychological trauma, examples of brochures to be delivered to those affected who receive PFA, as well as multimedia materials and information about support centers.
