Introducing embedded indigenous psychological support teams: a suggested addition to psychological first aid in an international context


, : Introducing embedded indigenous psychological support teams: a suggested addition to psychological first aid in an international context. International Journal of Emergency Mental Health 14(4): 289-296

The current article introduces Embedded Indigenous Psychological Support Teams (IPST) as a possible addition to current disaster relief efforts. This article highlights psychological first aid in an international context by drawing on mainstream disaster relief models such as The American Red Cross, Critical Incident Stress Management, and Flexible Psychological First Aid. IPST are explained as teams utilizing techniques from both CISM and FPFA with a focus on resiliency. It is currently theorized that in utilizing IPST existing disaster relief models may be more effective in mitigating negative physical or mental health consequences post-disaster.
