Psychological First Aid

Dear Friends
I just finished a very useful online free course: Psychological First Aid (PFA). Though this course discusses these skills in the context of natural disasters, I and you know that when a block hits us- it feels as if we were hit by Hurricane Katrina!
The psychological principles discussed in the course can be applied to your self or to other pws in your group - in person, on phone, in skype conference etc.. Yes, the course is in English but most of us will be able to follow the video lessons, which are very well done. So, if you are bored with subway surf and temple run- give a try to this course. Remember counseling others (and yourself) is as skilled a job as writing a script in Python...
Happy learning! (hoping to see you all in NC!).
