The 5 step protocol of EmotionAid is a good basis for teaching, acquiring, sharing, and remembering the EmotionAid toolbox. We are constantly developing new products and tools, using low and high tech. We are looking to improve acquisition and delivery of EmotionAid, and welcome all feedback.
Quality and Research:
We are aiming for high quality service and communication. Our tools are based on Somatic Experiencing and highest standards objective data obtained through our work and published in 2017 (references). The efficacy of EmotionAid is constantly researched and documented.
Our vision is to create a world community of EmotionAid facilitators and users. We want to make available to the greater number the capacity to self regulate and help each other . EmotionAid belongs to all of us.
The concept of Emotional First Aid is the vision of Gina Ross, who also founded ITI, the International Trauma Institute, in the US and in Israel.
Emotional First Aid, or EFA as it used to be called was born from both a passion and a mission. The passion for the healing potential of Somatic Experiencing (SE), and the mission to make those tools available to all sectors of the population.
The current EmotionAid® protocol is the result of years of field work with thousands of people, professionals from the mental health, education,first responders, business and medical sectors and the public at large. Our challenge : make sure our trainees acquire the tools of EmotionAid®, the 5 steps, and actually use them. It was designed by our local Israeli team.
