A new book, ‘Stress in Security Forces’ edited by Anil Varma with Dr. Ruwan M. Jayatunge, Dr. Franklin D. Jones, Stephen A. Young and Gautam Navalakha has been published by the ICFAI University Press, India.

Stress management is vital in the fields of defence and public safety. Positive stress management is a decisive factor in mission accomplishment. The articles covered in this book endeavour to extend the discussion and consolidation of stress management beyond just breath or exercise solutions often promoted in short articles addressing the topic. Instead the information provided will offer insight into stress dynamics so that individual readers can determine appropriate management solutions.


Anil Varma and Dr. Ruwan M. Jayatunge who have studied the deep psychological impacts of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) emphasize the importance of psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ), the latest and effective psychotherapy mode which is accepted by the APA (American Psychiatric Association).

Stress in Security Forces is an important book for the members of the armed forces, trainers and policy makers.
