Wellness and resilience for frontline workers and managers

by Humanitarian Leadership Academy

The impact of long hours, insecure environments, chronic stress, and traumatic incidents affect both the physical and emotional wellbeing of humanitarian professionals. They can experience anxiety, post-traumatic stress, depression and burnout.

As a result, even the most committed and experienced of them can become unable to function at their best, meaning that crisis-affected people may not be receiving the assistance and protection that they need. Investing in humanitarian staff wellbeing and resilience has therefore become a necessity.

The Humanitarian Leadership Academy, in collaboration with global experts in the field of humanitarian wellbeing, have created a new online course to assist Frontline Workers and Managers in understanding the impact that stress is having on their lives and how to build personal and organisational resilience.

The course will assist you in understanding the impact that stress is having on your lives and how to build personal and organisational resilience. By the end of the course, you will have developed a personal action plan and increased knowledge of various wellness and resilience techniques to apply during stressful situations.
