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.

How to Run a Meeting of People from Different Cultures

How to Run a Meeting of People from Different Cultures | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Multicultural meetings can be tricky to lead. “People bring their cultural baggage with them wherever they go—and that includes the workplace,” says Jeanne M. Brett, professor of dispute resolution and negotiations at Kellogg School of Management. Communication styles vary from culture to culture as do notions of authority and hierarchy, which only heightens the potential for misunderstanding and hard feelings. “If you don’t prepare for cultural differences and anticipate them at the front end, they’re a lot harder to deal with after the fact,” she says. It’s daunting but you needn’t feel overwhelmed, says Erin Meyer, a professor at INSEAD and the author of The Culture Maps. Approach your cross-cultural meeting with an open mind. And, have faith in your abilities because “you likely have more experience than you know,” adds Andy Molinsky, professor of organizational behavior at Brandeis University International Business School and the author of the book Global Dexterity. “You’ve probably run meetings where there was quite a lot of diversity, be it gender diversity, functional diversity, seniority diversity, or just different personalities—culture is one more element,” he says. Here are some ideas to help ensure that your multicultural meetings go smoothly.
