About this booklet
Spiritual first aid helps people recognise common spiritual and emotional reactions to trauma. Like physical first aid, it is intended to start an ongoing process of care. This guide can point people to skills and resources that will aid
in recovery. It uses principles and exercises adapted from the program model of the Trauma Healing Institute.
If you have survived a traumatic experience, this booklet can help you with practical ways to care for yourself and your loved ones. It also can help you recover emotionally and spiritually from the trauma you experienced.
