Stress Management in Disasters

by Cyralene P. Bryce

Pan American Health Organization

Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief Coordination Program

World Health Organization
Washington, D.C.

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 Insights into the Concept of Stress 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.
