Primary Emotional First Aid

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

After the incredible response to NHS Southampton City CAMHS EFA Emotional First Aid training courses which are for people who work with Young People ie Youth workers, teachers, social workers etc Dave Smith, Stuart Gemmell and Jacquie Kelly (the authors of the course) have now developed it for those who work with primary aged children. Primary Emotional First Aid offers an even earlier chance of assisting those showing signs of emotional distress or ‘stuckness’. Grish art are proud to be associated with this crucial project. Our concepts and designs are merely the external package, it is the content and the experience of these courses which are having such a lasting effect on the participants. Pictured below, the Primary Emotional First Aid course handbook.
