Teachers' Resilience and Well-Being: A Role for Educational Psychology
Gibbs, Simon; Miller, Andy
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v20 n5 p609-621 2014
The retention and resilience of teachers are subject to many influences. Children's behaviour is often cited as a major source of stress for teachers and a challenge to their resilience. We suggest that an understanding of teachers' attributions and efficacy beliefs may provide the foundations for work to support teachers. We outline findings from research that has examined teachers' attributions for the causes of children's misbehaviour, teachers' beliefs in their efficacy as classroom managers of children's behaviour as well as how, in principle, such beliefs may be supported and enhanced. We also relate these findings to those associated with educational and developmental outcomes for children. We conclude with some illustrative evidence of ways (involving consultation and other interventions) that applied psychologists have contributed to the professional well-being and resilience of teachers.
