School Staff Burnout. A Center Quick Training Aid.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
It is easy to overlook the psychological needs of school staff. Yet when school staff don't feel good about themselves, it is unlikely they will be effective in making students feel good about themselves. Staff who bring a mental health and motivational perspective to schools can take a leadership role to address the problem of staff burnout. In doing so, they need to focus on both promoting well-being and addressing barriers to teaching and learning. This quick training aid presents a brief overview on the topic of staff burnout, fact sheets and practice notes, tools and handouts, a listing of model programs, and a directory of additional resources.
