Psychosocial is a website that focuses on the dissemination of practical information and research about psychosocial issues confronted by managers and staff of agencies involved in humanitarian aid, human rights, and development work in the field. The purpose of Psychosocial is to assist agencies and their staff in improving their capacity to cope with, and mitigate the effects of, the stresses, tensions, and occupational hazards particular to humanitarian work.
Until 2010, Psychosocial was a project of the nonprofit organization Action Without Borders/Idealist.org. As of November 2010 Psychosocial.org is being redesigned and updated by Eric Fichtl, former editor at Idealist.org and a collaborator in the original Psychosocial project.
