The stress involved in a career in teaching has increased considerably in recent years. In England and Wales the implementation of the Education Reform Act has led to a whole range of organisational and curricular changes to add to the existing pressures of discipline problems, poor working conditions and low pay. Anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and even physical illness are just some of the symptoms that result. This established guide, now wholly updated for teachers and managers in the 1990s, shows how to recognize the signs of stress and how to develop strategies to control it. Its practical advice, field-tested in numberous workshops for teachers and heads, should help scholls to reduce pressures on their staff by the development of satisfactory whole-school policies and teachers to be more effective in the management of their own stress levels.

Teaching has long been recognised by researchers as one of the most stressful professions. However, only in recent years has the scale of occupational stress faced by teachers finally been addressed by government policy. In this ground-breaking book, Elizabeth Hartney provides readers with a basic understanding of stress, in the context of teaching in schools, and its effects on personal and professional well-being. Drawing on recent research into stress in teachers, the latest political changes affecting teachers, and stress management effectiveness, she suggests a wide range of strategies and an exhaustive and up-to-date list of resources to assist teachers and trainees in coping with all manners of stress, from stress in the classroom and the requirements of administration, to career development and coping with difficult people.
