Needs, Attitudes and Behaviors of Teachers Relative to Stress Situations of Children.
Zucker, Martine; Snoddy, James E.
Elementary school teachers and teachers in training responded to a questionnaire related to their experiences with stress situations in the lives of their students. The responses reflected the teachers' awareness of stress in the children's lives, what resources in the school-family system addressed these areas, their own preparation for intervention, and an assessment of their receptivity to a curriculum designed to teach children stress-coping skills. Results indicated that teachers are aware of stress situations in the lives of their students but the educational system has done little to train them in methods of beneficial intervention. Some reluctance was voiced on venturing into stress areas as classroom topics. (JD)
