Overview

In this course, instructor George Everly uses the Johns Hopkins RAPID model to explain the key elements of psychological first aid or PFA. RAPID stands for rapport and reflective listening, assessment of needs, prioritization, intervention, and disposition.

George S. Everly Jr. is the developer of the Johns Hopkins PFA RAPID method. He collaborated with Jeffrey M. Lating to implement the guidelines. Everly and Lating worked on counseling trauma witnesses in Kuwait during the Gulf War and New York City after the September 11, 2001 attacks. Today they teach the RAPID method internationally. Everly is an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

The RAPID method is applicable in a great variety of settings. Becoming familiar with it and learning how to practice it will be an invaluable tool for first responders, psychological professionals, and even ordinary bystanders.
