"Teachers are besieged by criticism from the press and politicians, and by pressure from parents and principals. In addition, they have to make scores of instantaneous decisions hour-by-hour, and day-after-day. That is where this book comes in. It illustrates how teachers can take care of themselves and thrive under stressful, and often unsupportive conditions. Written by two brilliant, knowledgeable, and calm educators, this book is a must for teachers who want to be at the top of their game. A teacher's career depends upon confidence and an ability to manage pressure, and they owe no less to their students and themselves."--Randy Sprick, PhD, Director, Safe and Civil Schools"This well-written, organized, and compelling book offers practical strategies to address the troubling phenomenon of teacher stress. Combining clinical insight, current research, and their extensive work with teachers, Herman and Reinke's unique approach focuses on building teacher resilience. The book is an exceptionally valuable resource for school psychologists, consultants, counselors, and administrators who support teachers. It would also make an excellent text for education students as part of their field experience and teaching internship program."--Lori Newcomer, PhD, Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology, University of Missouri"Stress Management for Teachers taught me how to turn those sometimes-negative thoughts into positive ones. Learning to be aware of my thoughts and feelings throughout the day, and changing what goes into my body, have both had a vital impact on my mood and perceptions of myself. This book helped me create a positive cycle in my life that has not only improved my attitude toward teaching, but also has made me feel more successful in my personal life."--K. Gilchrist, MEd, NBCT, third-grade teacher, McCurdy Elementary School, Florissant, Missouri
