Operational Stress First Aid (OSFA) – California Southern Baptist Convention

Operational Stress First Aid (OSFA)

Operational Stress First Aid (OSFA) is a unique program to teach psychological first aid to disaster relief  volunteers and others who are susceptible to stress injury. Developed by the Department of Defense in the  context of constant crisis, OSFA is used to prevent, identify, and treat stress problems caused by critical  events, personal, or family crisis situations. Using a color scheme to identify the level of stress impact, the  goals of OSFA are to preserve life, prevent further harm, and to promote recovery. Using a multi-step  process for assessment and care of stress reactions or injuries in individuals or teams, OSFA was designed  specifically to augment the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual support structures that exist during  critical incidents, and to help restore these support structures over time.
