Improving Teacher Mental Health Through Self-Awareness: A Workshop and Workbook
Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education
This project addresses the need for teachers-in-training and teachers already working in the profession to develop personal and professional self-awareness in order to manage their work-related stress and mental health needs. Numerous research articles have examined the causes of stress in teaching, the effects of stress on teachers, and teacher factors that mediate the effects of stress (e.g. self-efficacy, environmental supports, locus of control), however, currently there are limited resources available specifically targeted to helping teachers develop self-awareness as a way to cope with stress. This project includes literature that outlines the need for supporting teachers, information on how to support teachers in managing their work-related stress and mental health, and A Workshop to Improve Teacher Mental Health Through Self-Awareness, A Workbook to Improve Teacher Mental Health Through Self-Awareness, and Facilitating a Workshop to Improve Teacher Mental Health Through Self-Awareness: A Guidebook to address this need in the teaching profession.
