This workbook was developed by Dr. Cyralene P. Bryce for the Stress Management in Disasters in the Caribbean (SMID) course. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the Stress Management in Disasters workbook. It is not intended to be a complete text on the subject of stress.

The compilation of this book benefitted from the input of too many persons for them to be mentioned individually. We would however like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone for their invaluable contributions and criticisms. Thank you.

“When you become preoccupied with the difficulties of a given task, it is easy to overlook its sheer simplicity.” -CPB


You can control how stressed you become.

“If your fight for acceptance results in your exhaustion, then maybe you’re seeking to be accepted by the wrong persons.” -CPB
