Rational-Emotive Therapy: Contributions to Teacher Stress Management
Susan G. Forman
Abstract: Cognitive-mediational factors, including teacher attitudes towards potential stressors in the work environment and coping skills, play a major role in the determination of teacher stress reactions. Irrational beliefs have been found to be significantly related to teacher stress levels. Teacher stress management interventions having the most evidence of effectiveness employ cognitive restructuring components based on rational-emotive therapy procedures. These programs have used a stress inoculation training framework, and provide behavioral and cognitive-behavioral coping skills, which can be used to alter psychological and physiological responses to potential stressors and negative stress reactions.
