You may be disappointed, but not surprised, to learn that we encounter episodes of sexual assault and harassment among the aid workers and emergency responders we serve. 

Headington Institute staff decided years ago to openly address this issue in our research, public presentations, online resources, training workshops, counseling sessions, and management consultations.  Over the years, we have helped victims recover, managers resolve specific situations, and organizations address the wider systemic problems leading to these behaviors.

Recent media attention to sexual assault and harassment has included our findings and featured interviews with our staff.  As a result of heightened awareness, aid and responder organizations are now expressing a greater willingness to proactively address this problem.

We will continue to aggressively address sexual assault and harassment until the safety of all is assured.

Thanks for helping us in this effort.  Jim

Determined To Do More
While seismic, economic and political changes rocked the world, disasters and humanitarian emergencies increased this year.

Emergency responders were there, helping victims regardless of the danger.

We were there too, promoting responder resilience and trauma recovery.

We are proud of this work and determined to double our impact.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that an article highlighting the Headington Institute Resilience Inventory (HIRI) has been accepted for publication by the journal International Perspectives in Psychology: Research, Practice, Consultation.

The HIRI was developed to gain a new understanding of what most directly helps and inhibits the wellbeing and resilience of global humanitarians and highlights key factors of resilence with corresponding behaviors that support wellbeing and recovery.
