This presentation will focus on providing teachers with a well-established framework for improving their coping and problem solving skills so as to improve their ability to manage the inevitable stressors of their jobs. I will provide a wealth of resources for any K-12 in-service and pre-service teacher to use as a self-improvement guide. The strategies described in the presentation have been used and described in other self-improvement oriented books for other audiences (e.g., David Burns’, “Feeling Good” book is an excellent example). Research has shown that individuals can use these skills described in such books to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. The skills and strategies will be drawn from my book, “Stress Management for Teachers: A Proactive Guide,” which I co-authored with Dr. Wendy Reinke based on our extensive consultation with teachers and our ongoing research projects.
