The ability to respond adaptively to stress, keep people calm, and support co-workers, patients, and family members who are experiencing stress and uncertainty is integral to the well-being of healthcare workers and caregivers. This training teaches you about tools to support and

assist others’ adaptive functioning during times of stress, as well as basic strategies to help you cope.

PFA training is an evidence-informed approach built on the concept of human resilience and tailored to help you better recognize, understand, and manage symptoms of psychological distress. It’s a way to give emotional support to people of any age, ethnic and cultural heritage, and social and economic background.
