This self assessment tool is designed to help you think about how to care for yourself physically, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and professionally.
Managing Stress in the Field
This publication has been conceived as a practical manual. The different types of stress experienced by delegates are described along with the associated symptoms. It highlights the importance of identifying and knowing personal, team and organisational resources. This second version has been adapted to reflect updated needs and experiences. It incorporates a new self- assessment questionnaire at the end of the booklet. Increasing delegates’ knowledge of stress management will avoid potential risks to their psychological and physical health.
Psychological First Aid
This guide covers psychological first aid which involves humane, supportive and practical help to fellow human beings suffering serious crisis events. It is written for people in a position to help others who have experienced an extremely distressing event. It gives a framework for supporting people in ways that respect their dignity, culture and abilities. Despite its name, psychological first aid covers both social and psychological support.
Caring for Volunteers: A Psychosocial Support Toolkit
