MENTAL HEALTH OF TEACHERS--STILL A PROBLEM.
DELP, HAROLD A.
THE FREQUENCY OF MALADJUSTMENT AMONG TEACHERS IS SUCH THAT IN 12 YEARS OF PUBLIC EDUCATION THE CHANCES ARE 7 TO 1 THAT A CHILD WILL HAVE AT LEAST TWO MALADJUSTED TEACHERS. RESEARCH INDICATES THAT WHILE TEACHING IS NOT ONE OF THE DIRECT CAUSES OF THE MALADJUSTMENT, THE FACTORS INVOLVED DO INCLUDE PERSONAL PROBLEMS, COMMUNITY PRESSURES, AND PROFESSIONAL PROBLEMS. AIDS TO IMPROVE TEACHERS' MENTAL HEALTH INCLUDE--(1) CONTROL OF TEACHER CANDIDATES, (2) BROADER TRAINING FOR BETTER TEACHER UNDERSTANDING OF HUMAN NATURE AND ITS PROBLEMS, (3) COUNSELING TEACHERS IN SELECTION OF APPROPRIATE JOBS, (4) ASSISTING TEACHERS BY MEANS OF IN-SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMS, (5) ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT OF TEACHERS, (6) IMPROVEMENT OF PARENT-TEACHER RELATIONS, AND (7) PRAISE FOR SUCCESSFUL TEACHING. THIRTY-FIVE BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCES ARE GIVEN. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE JUNE 1963 ISSUE OF THE JOURNAL OF TEACHER EDUCATION. (JH)
