Stress and Teaching. What Research Says to the Teacher.
Swick, Kevin J.
This monograph explores three particular emphases: (1) stress occurs within an ecological system; (2) individuals need to be skilled self-managers in dealing with their stress ecology, and (3) teachers are the initial source and ultimate controller of their stress system. Integrated with these emphases are such topics as the ecology of teacher stress, teachers as sources of stress, stress as motivation for growth, symptoms and indicators of burnout, knowing stress management, and the role of professional growth in stress prevention/resolution.
