IMESD presents Emotional First Aid course March 2 at Wildhorse

Release Date: 

When tragedy strikes, it can be difficult to know what to say, what not to say, and what you can do to help. An “Emotional First Aid” course from the Trauma Intervention Program of Portland/Vancouver, Inc., seeks to provide people with the specific skills necessary to come to the aid of friends, neighbors, coworkers, clients, family members, and strangers immediately following a tragedy.

One of these Emotional First Aid seminars will be held on March 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tucannon/Palouse Room at Wildhorse Resort. The event is sponsored jointly by the InterMountain Education Service District and the Umatilla County Wraparound Program. This training is intended for people who work in education, social services, faith-based helping community, public agencies and public safety personnel.

The training seminar is free, but lunch is not provided. To register, please visit the IMESD web site,, and click on the “Professional Development” tab.
