Community-Based Psychological First Aid: A Practical Guide to Helping Individuals and Communities during Difficult Times presents a practical method for helping those in need in difficult times. No advanced training in psychology is needed to use it. Injuries from disasters, terrorist events, and civil unrest are not just physical. These events also cause psychological trauma that can do lasting damage. Psychological First Aid (PFA) draws on human resilience and aims to reduce stress systems and help those affected recover. It is not professional psychotherapy, and those providing this kind of aid do not need a degree to help. Gerard Jacobs has developed this community-based method of delivering PFA over 20 years and has taught it in over 30 countries. Along with the easy-to-follow method, Jacobs includes examples of how this works in action in different situations, and presents scenarios to practice. Unique in its approach of community engagement to train community members to help each other, this guide is an excellent resource for local emergency managers to engage in whole community emergency management. Presents a proven method for helping to alleviate the mental health effects of disasters, terrorist attacks, civil unrest, and other community stressors Offers a community-based model developed and taught by an international expert for over 20 years, requiring no advanced training or education in psychology to use Provides techniques that are adaptable to individual communities or cultures Outlines practices for self-care while helping others to prevent burnout Includes case studies, scenarios, and key terms to help facilitate community training

During the past decade, we have witnessed a dramatic transformation in the nature and uses of terrorism. In the 70s, it was often repeated that terrorists "want a lot of people watching, not a lot of people dead"; today, it is more accurate to say that terrorists want a lot of people dead, and even more people crippled by fear and grief. A major strategic intent of modern terrorists is to use larger scale physical attacks to cause stress in the general population. These changes in terrorist strategy have made it clear that we need better psychological and social responses to terrorism and man-made disasters. The psychological science needed to provide proper and effective treatment for victims of horrendous events, such as September 11th, and future potential terrorist acts, simply does not exist, so military, medical, and psychological experts must work together to improve their understanding of mass casualty terrorism. In Psychology of Terrorism leading national and international experts present the first results of this effort, including the newest findings on treatment of and clinical responses to terrorism along with their respective underlying theories. They address the history of terrorism; types and effects of weapons of mass destruction or disruption; the role of the military, government agencies, and volunteer groups in responding to terrorist threats; psychological consequences of terrorism; and treatment of special populations such as children and older adults. This volume will be an ideal text for both academic and professional courses as well as a comprehensive resource for mental health clinicians and researchers, medical care providers, educators, public health specialists, government employees, police and fire departments, and non-profit agencies that provide services and craft policy.

Behandeln Sie kleine emotionale Verletzungen, bevor sie zu großen Wunden werden. Auf ein aufgeschlagenes Knie kleben wir ein Pflaster. Was aber unternehmen wir, um die seelischen Verletzungen zu behandeln, die wir im Alltag erleiden? Oft fehlen uns dafür wirksame Mittel. Gleich zum Therapeuten zu gehen ist nicht immer sinnvoll, denn viele seelische Verletzungen sind nicht so schwer, dass sie professionelle Hilfe erfordern. Vergleichbar einem Medizinschränkchen mit Verbandszeug, Salben und Schmerzmitteln für die Grundversorgung körperlicher Alltagsverletzungen möchte dieses Buch eine Hausapotheke für die kleineren seelischen Verletzungen sein, die wir uns im täglichen Leben holen. Guy Winch führt Sie Schritt für Schritt in die Behandlung der häufigsten psychischen Verwundungen ein: Zurückweisung, Einsamkeit, Verlust, Schuldgefühle, Grübeln, Scheitern und ein geringes Selbstwertgefühl – hier lernen Sie, wie Sie mit emotionalen Wunden wirksam umgehen und so zu mehr Resilienz und Selbstvertrauen finden. »So sollte Selbsthilfe sein – effektiv und heilsam. In Emotionale Erste Hilfe findet jeder Techniken zur Selbstfürsorge für die eigene seelische Hausapotheke.« – Meg Selig, Psychology Today
