The rescue teams that deliver first aid are exposed to dramatic situations and suffer a sort of "psychic infection" because of the grief observed. The traumatic image is strongly attached to the psyche and can be "silent" but active for many years. Psychodrama sets emotions free, allows suffering and traumatic experiences to be worked out and prevents stress reactions and potential self-destructive behaviour.

Keywords: First Aid; Rescue Team; Trauma; Image; Event; Psychodrama; Traumatic Experiences Working Out; Prevention.
