Abstract : Albania, as part of an application and preparation for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's Partnership for peace program, requested training in the psychological issues associated with peacekeeping. The briefing, portions of which were presented to Albanian sociologists with the Ministry of Defense in April 1995, introduces the work of the U.S. Army Medical Research Unit-Europe, and reviews psychological issues during the pre-deployment, deployment, and re-deployment phases of a peacekeeping deployment. A five dimension model of psychological stressors and associated recommendations are presented, as well as a brief description of psychological stress reactions and possible treatments and prevention strategies. A summary of several international studies with peacekeepers provides additional background information.
