Abstract

The effects of stress inoculation training and classroom management training on teacher anxiety were compared in a study in which 60 teachers were assigned to either of these two treatments or a control group. Dependent measures included self-reported teaching and general anxiety, observations of motoric indicators of anxiety in the classroom, and observations of teachers' verbal classroom behavior. Pretreatment, posttreatment, and 4-week follow-up data were collected. Both stress inoculation, and classroom management training were found to improve teachers' affect and behavior.
