Manual for Maximizing Stress Resilience

Organizations, agencies and businesses can use the Maximizing Stress Resilience Manual (PDF) as a tool to assess whether or not a new emergency social services recruit will cope during a disaster.

Current responders may also find the manual useful, especially the sections:

  • Trauma and Disaster Work: A Self-Assessment, and
  • Your Health and Disasters.

The manual was developed by the British Columbia Disaster Worker Care Committee, with the support of the Emergency Social Services Office and the ESS Advisory Committee.
