VanSlyke-Briggs, Kjersti

This book tackles the concerns of stressed teachers. Whether from nurturance suffering (stress related to caring for students) or from the piles of paperwork yet to be tackled, this text helps the reader sort through the causes of stress, the emotional, physical and social reactions to stress and how one can begin to plan a stress management plan. The book includes a historical overview of feminist education, the perception of caring teachers in the media and a look at emotional labor and the impact on the teacher. Contents include: (1) Foreword (Stephanie Paterson); (2) Introduction; (3) How We Came to this Place: Emotional Labor and Stress ; (4) Coping with Nurturance Suffering; (5) Case Studies; (6) Revive Yourself; (7) Continuing to Care: Nourish Yourself and Your Classroom; and (8) Honor Your Work.
