Washington, DC-based Greenleaf Integrative completed a study for the globally-dispersed governmental agency, USAID, to assess the psychosocial difficulties and contextual stressors faced by the agency’s humanitarian relief workers and the supports available to them. The key insights from the study fueled recommendations for structural changes within the agency, as well as Greenleaf’s continued philosophy of shared responsibility for resilience in organizations operating in highly demanding environments.
