The manual Working with Children in Unstable Settings aims to guide UNICEF staff and UNICEF partners in how best to respond to the psychosocial needs of children in unstable situations. It aims to introduce humanitarian workers to psychosocial principles and UNICEFs position on these principles. It provides a number of examples from UNICEF field work of how these principles have been turned into concrete interventions.
