Training Programs

The CBR Project helps humanitarian relief workers to combat the physical and psychological effects of the chronic stress they experience in conflict zones and natural disaster situations. We provide knowledge, tools and peer support for aid workers in front-line field positions, as well as those experiencing the stress of technical or management roles in an office environment. 

Our training is available through 90 minute introductions, one day workshops, and one year programs:

1 year Program of Stress management and resilience

The CBR Project 4 Day Training Programs have been designed and tested specifically with aid workers over the past 5 years. For details and testimonials, click here.

Four Day Residential Training: Our one year program begins with a four day residential training programs, which brings together a cohort of aid workers who will work together in mutual support. The one year program teaches individual aid workers new habits and practical skills to develop their own resilience, and manage their stress levels.

Continuing Support after the Training: To support this continuous learning journey, the CBR Project training program includes one year of continued support. We achieve this through 12 online peer support and mentoring sessions led once per month by meditation teacher Hugh Byrne and CBR Project Director, Emmett Fitzgerald. 

Peer Support: One of the most important roles of the residential training program is to create new friendships and a safe space to address stigma and fear of open discussion. CBR alumni have access to their trusted network of peers through email contact, private Facebook groups, WhatsApp groups and other opt-in methods for staying connected.
