UN Stress Management Booklet

Manual and Guideline
Originally published


With stress management becoming an increasingly important factor in the adequate preparation of UN peace-keepers, this document aims to provide a basic framework for professional stress management trainers. It offers two main parts:

Part One: Most essential elements required for trainers dealing with stress in UN peace-keeping operations. Focuses on the phases before, during and after a peace-keeping assignment with specific
emphasis on traumatic, or critical-incident, stress.

Part Two: 'Stress Management for UN Peace-keepers', was produced as an individual document for the individual peace-keeper. Useful for classroom discussions and working groups.
