Guide: Psychological First Aid (PFA) for Unaccompanied Children (UC)

Psychological First Aid (PFA) for unaccompanied children (UC) is an evidence-informed modular approach to assist unaccompanied children immediately after arriving in the US. This approach includes a set of tools to assist staff in supporting unaccompanied children through early transitions. It is useful for working with unaccompanied children preparing to reunite with family members, or transitioning to an Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) permanent program/shelter. This approach can also support staff and volunteers in caring for themselves while engaging in this challenging work.
