Emotional First Aid

In the same way we train to provide first aid for physical injuries or illness, we can learn Emotional First Aid (EFA). EFA is a collection of skills that help us take better care of ourselves and the people around us. When we develop good EFA skills, work gets easier and life gets better. 

Personal EFA Skills

  • Notice Emotional Pain. Ignoring pain won’t make it go away. You might be feeling angry, sad, or frustrated, but a psychological injury can also cause physical symptoms.
  • Be Kind to Yourself. Negative self-talk damages your self-esteem and resilience. Treat yourself with the same compassion you’d offer to a friend or loved one. 
  • Avoid Rumination. Repeatedly replaying distressing events in your mind is not helpful. To disrupt rumination, distract yourself with positive activities that require mental or physical attention. 
  • Redefine Failure. Avoid focusing on what you can’t do instead of what you can. Try making a list of what you’d control or change if you were to try again. Next time, you’ll do better. 
  • Find Meaning in Loss. Consider what you’ve gained or could change from the experience to add purpose to your life. Try supporting others who have experienced a similar loss to lessen your own pain. 

The Employee Assistance Program is Here to Help
