Are you a dedicated teacher wondering why you do not enjoy your job anymore?
Do you worry about the students you teach and how you can help them?
Have you found the stress you and your students work under is becoming increasingly unbearable?
This book explains the nature of stress in the classroom in a clear, practical way, focussing in on how teachers can help themselves cope, and in turn, help the students in their care.
The author, an experienced educational psychologist, researcher and lecturer, introduces a much tried-and-tested coping framework, based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy. She shows how using this easy-to-implement framework in everyday life can make a really positive difference to teachers' lives and will equip them to tackle some of the key challenges they often face in their students such as:
DT Chronic illness
DT Eating disorders
Not only can the use of the cognitive behavioural coping framework help people cope with their existing difficulties, it can also be used to prevent these difficulties developing into much more serious issues. Free of jargon and full of case studies and exercises, this book will be a breath of fresh air to the most jaded of classroom teacher, and will be equally valuable to students on initial teacher education courses.Approved by Englishcology
