Stress in Teaching.
Through the extensive use of teachers' reports, the many and varied stresses endured by teaching staff and their reactions to them are identified. In focusing on the dual problem of reducing pressures on teaching staff and strengthening their coping resources, this book calls attention to a series of issues within education. Chapters are devoted to: (1) staff problems caused by organizational and curricular changes; (2) problems of role conflict and role ambiguity; (3) pressures of children's behavior and attitudes; (4) pressures of difficult working conditions; (5) pressures on middle management; (6) pressures on the top management team; (7) identification of stress reactions; (8) identification of teachers' coping resources; (9) recommendations for strengthening personal and interpersonal resources; and (10) recommendations for strengthening organizational resources.
