Verbal First Aid

"What you say to a person in an emergency situation can have a profound physical and verbal effect; it can shape the course of healing and its outcome.

Picture this: You are driving down the road and you witness a hit and run accident. You immediately call 911 and then run to the victim lying by the side of the road. The victim is hurt. What can you say to be of help?

A. "Don't die, please don't die."
B. "Just relax, everything's going to be alright."
C. "I can see you are in pain. An ambulance is on the way, the worst is over."

If you really want to help, answer (C) is the beginning of Verbal First Aid, which could save a life.

No matter what has happened; a car crash, a playground injury or a person having an asthma or a panic attack, when a victim is lying on the ground or feeling out of control, the words they hear in the first crucial moments can make all the difference in the world. The power of your words can activate the healing zone or scare them into a worst trauma. Knowing what to say--and what not to say--can make all the difference in the world.

On our show you'll learn the skills and techniques you can immediately apply to:

Provide pain relief and take the focus off the injury.

Help an accident victim.

Establish an alliance and build trust.
Alleviate chronic pain.
Calm Asthma and panic attacks.
Give suggestions that activates the healing response.

Verbal First Aid is the language of healing that can be used on yourself and one another, wherever and whenever the human heart is vulnerable. Simply by knowing what to say and do you can calm anxiety, relieve pain and initiate healing in most crisis situations.
