[Edited post-publication: Added link] This short booklet, “Managing Stress on the Field,” gives a great overview of stress for field workers. It was published initially in 2001 by the International Federation of the Red Cross/Red Crescent. It’s available for free and online, also in French and Spanish, and includes many useful tips along with a questionnaire on stress/trauma-related symptoms. It is also a great tool for mission/aid organizations to distribute to their staff. (Thanks to Kelly and Michele O’Donnell for recently passing this tip to Brigada.)
