Emotional First Aid Training an accredited course for professionals who work with primary school aged children

Emotional First Aid is the initial support given to a child experiencing emotional distress, creating a healthy emotional environment before any appropriate professional help is sought and obtained.

Outline

With 1/10 Children & Young People having a diagnosed mental illness which can follow them into adult life, and a further 1/10 Children and Young People having a mental health problem, there needs to be more of an emphasis on early intervention.
Emotional First Aid training is about building the understanding, capacity, capability and confidence in professionals who work with primary aged children about a range of influences on a child’s emotional health and to explore some effective strategies that could be implemented to support the children to encourage them to explore and understand their emotions.
The training aims to encourage staff to take a step towards children experiencing emotional distress and form a working alliance to explore emotions and “get through it together.”

Description

Emotional First Aid (EFA) is an innovative training course based on evidence based practice and built on a foundation of Systemic Thinking and Humanistic Principles. EFA seeks to dispel the myth that mental health means mental illness.
The three day training raises awareness of worry and anxiety in children encouraging appropriate emotional expression and the development of helpful strategies which we hope may reduce the likelihood of many Children & Young People developing a Mental Health Problem or a Mental Illness.
At the end of the three day course, successful delegates will be recognised and accredited as an “Emotional First Aider” by the Solent NHS Trust.
