The Efficacy of a Collaborative Stress Management Program for Teachers

Janet G. Froeschle and Charles R. Crews

This article describes an experimental study that evaluated the impact of a school-based and collaboratively implemented stress management program on teachers’ emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment perceptions.
