Abstract : Considering the importance that stress has in the armed forces, it is necessary to study those factors that reduce the probability of apparition of it. From the prevention point of view, the studies show different factors that can reduce the negative impact of this phenomenon (Distress). Among these factors, morale plays a fundamental role. Since Spain began in 1988 its participation in operations of peace and human aid, by mandate of the UN, to our days, we can verify the increase of the same and the importance that in them has the role of the psychologist reflected in the memories of the units of psychology unfolded in the operation zones. Given the extensive investigation of this phenomenon in the sanitary and educational environments, we intend, through a retrospective study, to determine as morale is constituted like a protection factor that could come to reduce the first symptoms of the labor stress in military units. We propose a new model based on the positive psychology principles, to be developed during the peacekeeping operations.
