First responders workshop

This workshop has been designed to help deliver professional development training to first responders to develop their knowledge and understanding of:

  • The impact of trauma on children;
  • The role first responders can play in children’s recovery;
  • Self-care for first responders; and
  • The role of first responders as parents.

The core outcome of the training is to equip first responders with the knowledge and skills required to promote resilience and coping, and decrease long-term adverse reactions in children (aged 0-12 years) following a natural disaster event.

This workshop and accompanying activities has been broken into four modules which can be delivered individually or together as a series. Modules are anticipated to run for 30-40 minutes each.

The workshop resources comprises of a Facilitator’s Handbook and accompanying presentation slides, discussion/reflection activities, participant handouts and an ‘additional resources’ guide. As the facilitator, it’s best to start by familiarising yourself with the workshop by viewing the Facilitator’s Handbook.
