Field Resilience & Stress Management Training
High levels of stress caused by intense working conditions, proximity to extreme suffering, and the inherent dangers of field work put international aid workers at high risk of suffering burnout. Those that experience trauma can be left with long term psychological scars, or PTSD.
Field Resilience & Stress Management Training is suitable for all staff. Although not a substitute for specialist support, the course is trauma-sensitive and provides practical tools and skills for all those dealing with the uncertainty and stress sometimes caused by deployment in complex environments.
Designed by mental health experts in the aid and development field, ILS offers this course as a web-based training delivered live over 3 hours by an ILS facilitator who specialises in stress management and resilience.
