Management and organisation support are essential for the wellbeing of staff, and this is particularly true for human service professionals, including humanitarians, who are exposed to many external stress factors.
The right organisational culture enables staff to trust the organisation to look after their safety and security, both physical and psychosocial. This supportive organisational culture creates and maintains an effective workforce.
I have been developing and delivering trainings for staff safety and well-being within the aid sector for many years now. This includes both bespoke and open courses developed with and for headquarters, regional and country offices.
When looking at organisational development and change, I bring together my experience of managing humanitarian programmes overseas, my work on developing good practice on safety and security and my growing understanding of psychotherapy. The research I have undertaken as part of my studies have looked at how aid workers are impacted by the work they do and how therapeutic techniques can help individual well-being as well as personal, team and organisation resilience.
