All in the Mind?



What makes some teachers calm and collected, when others feel frazzled? Find out, as Professor Cary Cooper investigates the psychology of stress.

Cary, from Lancaster University, is joined by occupational psychologist Emma Donaldson-Feilder to focus on school stress.

Scientific data gathered from a week-long series of experiments measuring stress levels at Kings Langley Secondary School, as featured in a previous Teachers TV series How Stressed Is Your School, is used.

Psychologists recommend effective ways of running shorter meetings, and reducing the stress caused by tricky parents. They also look at the ways to help teachers prioritise their paperwork.
