Sao Paulo Medical Journal - Common psychiatric symptoms among public school teachers in Palmas, Tocantins, Brazil. An observational cross-sectional study

Sao Paulo Medical Journal - Common psychiatric symptoms among public school teachers in Palmas, Tocantins, Brazil. An observational cross-sectional study | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Our study found that the prevalence of mental disorders among teachers is as high as seen in the literature. Our results suggest that recognition of such disorders is low and that the current statistics fail to reach the occupational health sector. Most of these teachers are probably not getting appropriate care. Educational and preventive measures are necessary, since the welfare of these professionals is reflected in the quality of learning that young people receive. Future research should focus on the impact of applying preventive programs.

Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons. Either way, they create unnecessary complexity, strife, and worst of all stress.

 
Sharrock's insight:

There's a lot of good advice in this article. It's excellent for dealing with toxic people, but it is also good for avoiding burnout when in any stressful job position. This is especially good for educators of all kinds.

 

If you were ever looking for emotional skills and social skills, this is a great list of those people need to learn (and to continually practice) in order to maintain healthy resilience: The skills can just as easily replace the word "they" with "resilient people..."
