Managing Teacher Stress and Burnout.
Sparks, Dennis; Hammond, Janice
This monograph offers a practical guide for identifying and managing those stressors that are in the specific domain of the individual--exercise, diet, sleep, interpersonal relations, time and conflict management, and relaxation. The first section covers stress theory; methods to identify and clarify stressors; restoration of a balanced perspective through examining job-related successes, satisfactions, and strengths; and consideration of blocks that often prevent people from integrating stress management techniques into their life styles. In the second section, specific techniques for managing stress are presented. The final section reviews the management techniques and suggestions discussed in previous sections. (JD)
