Elements for Wellbeing (EFW) Training Self-Care and Wildfire Survivor Support
Elements for Wellbeing training offers those who work with wildfire survivors a flexible set of tools to address disaster-related stress reactions. There is often a gap between experiencing stress reactions and seeking help. EFW can bridge that gap by teaching participants better skills to support themselves and survivors. EFW can only be as strong as the determination of the community to preserve the health and well-being of each of its members, so that they can both serve others and take better care of themselves for as long as they need. The EFW Core Actions: 1. Promote a sense of safety. 2. Promote calming. 3. Promotesocialconnection. 4. Promote a sense of self and collective efficacy. 5. Promote a sense of hope. Our directive is to help fire survivors identify their most pressing current needs and concerns and teach and support them as they develop skills to address those needs.
