Stress in One Occupational Group: Teachers.
Department of Social and Psychological Foundations, City College of CUNY, New York, New York 1992 Jan:35 pages
Factors were identified which affect the well being of newly appointed female teachers. Exposures in the work environment which were shown to impinge directly on this well being included insulting behavior from students, student on student violence, and violence directed at the teachers. These factors which influenced the well being of the teachers were all preventable. The work environment was shown to significantly affect the job satisfaction and teacher motivation to continue in this profession. Obesity and the use of tranquilizers were directly related to the exposure factor. These exposures did not have a direct bearing on either alcohol or tobacco use. The outcomes of these stress factors did not appear to be influenced by individual coping efforts. Supportive behaviors from colleagues did not mitigate the effects of the work environment on the well being of the teachers. If any effect was obtained from colleague support it was primarily to reinforce the adversity of the surroundings.
