Emergency cognitive, psychological first aid workshop for assisting and supporting victims of trauma
This workshop will train individuals to treat victims of terrorist attacks and traumatic experiences on site or within the first critical 72 hours. Crises supported include the Manchester Arena suicide bombing, London Bridge and Borough Market terror attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire. This approach has been shown to lower the risk of PTSD and help victims deal with the mental scars of terror.

About Carole Golten
I am a Psychotherapist in Private Practice and I am Co-ordinating this event for the Presenter. I did the training myself in 2017 and one week later I attended Grenfell Tower to work with some of the victims. The training was invaluable and I would thoroughly recommend this innovative approach.
