Who cares about the mental health of teachers?
Analysis of teachers ‘mental health problems Excessive work pressure causes teachers to have mental health problems According to foreign surveys, teachers’ work pressure is greater than in other industries. Hong Kong also ranks teacher work pressure as the second highest, behind the police.
Social security in Mainland China is good, and teachers’ work pressure may be higher than the police.
The characteristics of the teacher’s work determine that the teacher’s work status exists not only for 8 hours at work, but also for a whole day.
Being under strong pressure for a long time will inevitably lead to psychological distress and poor mental state.
Over time, you will develop mental illness to varying degrees.
Psychology believes that moderate work stress can eliminate the emptiness and depression in the heart, which is exciting and gives people an upward momentum, which is conducive to improving the efficiency of work and study. On the contrary, excessive work stress will bring people distress and boredomIt makes people feel worried, palpitations and depression, and makes people have physical and psychological disorders, which leads to the occurrence of mental illness.
It can be seen that teachers’ excessive work pressure is one of the leading causes of mental health problems for teachers.
Too many high expectations of teachers ‘roles cause teachers to have mental health problems. Teachers’ work objects determine the teachers ‘work affects the hearts of millions of households and the entire society, and thousands of eyes are staring at the teachers’ every move.
As teachers, they are responsible to the country, society, schools, and the families of all students, and they are responsible to hundreds of students.
Always keep in mind the various role expectations.
Different subjects have different expectations for the role of the teacher, different evaluation standards for the work of the teacher, there are similarities, there are differences and even conflicts.
The state and society expect teachers to be knowledge disseminators, collective leaders, and exemplary citizens; parents and students expect teachers to be knowledgeable, knowledgeable, and omniscient scholar-type professors, and schools always expect itOf teachers are excellent disciplinary maintainers, outstanding educators, and obey the laws and regulations, and refer to good employees where they go.
Many roles are expected to be integrated, and it is completely required that the teacher be a perfect superman.
Teachers are, after all, ordinary people, real people with flesh and blood, and the roles they play cannot reach many expectations at the same time.
Unsatisfactory role-playing in a few areas will receive a lot of criticism and accusations.
If teachers are overly responsible, they will be worried all day long, fearing that some aspects of role-playing mistakes will result in scolding.
Excessive psychological burden will lead to teachers’ psychological imbalance and mental health problems.
Having perfect self-expectations is difficult to believe or is willing to cause teachers to have mental health problems. As the embodiment of knowledge and morality, teachers often subconsciously take perfection as their goal in life.
In work, teachers always hope that they are perfect in all aspects, that they are not worse than others, and they are eager for others to see and affirm their achievements.
And often ignore their own constraints.
In reality, individual characteristics, abilities, strengths, and potentials are different, and these self-conditions are part of the work performance.
Especially for teacher profession, performance may not be directly reflected in the teacher’s own education, ability and time spent, but indirectly reflected from the students.
Therefore, achievement and labor are not always directly proportional.
This means that if the teacher feels that his grades are not satisfactory, he will work harder, but the results of the hard work may not reach his expected results.
Therefore, if the teacher cannot reasonably analyze the mistakes and attribute the causes to himself, he will feel guilty, blame himself, and even feel pessimistic, and bring about psychological adverse reactions and mental health problems.
Insufficient teacher evaluation system affects teachers’ mental health, and teacher evaluation mainly adopts the final evaluation method, and combines the evaluation results with rewards and punishments.
That is: the process is not valued, but only the end result.
Therefore, only the teachers ‘work on the students’ academic performance was evaluated, and many other aspects of the work were ignored, such as the teachers ‘efforts to change the students’ ideology and morals, outlook on life, values and behaviors.
Ignore the teachers’ hard work and sweat beyond their academic performance.
This makes teachers doubt the scientific nature of the evaluation method.
In addition, the fairness of this evaluation method needs to be further improved.
Teachers ‘grades are only reflected in the students’ exams, ignoring differences in academic performance caused by differences in all aspects of the class.
Even two students with the same original foundation may have different results due to their genetic factors, family environment, and the degree of parental awareness.
Ignoring the differences in all aspects of the students, and it is obviously unfair to the teachers to use the test results of the students alone as the sole basis for evaluating the teachers.
Therefore, if the teacher cannot accept the evaluation method, the evaluation result will have a great impact on the teacher’s psychology.
Teachers ‘labor remuneration is difficult to reflect the teachers’ labor value, causing teachers to have an unbalanced mentality. In the past, teachers were ashamed of the issue of money because of their own professional characteristics. But now the concept of market economy has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.The issue of compensation.
It is undeniable that the salaries of necessary teachers have been greatly improved, and the party and the government have devoted great efforts to guaranteeing the salaries of teachers, which have greatly improved the teachers’ living conditions and increased their enthusiasm for work.
However, there are still some problems with the number of teachers.At the highest level, the current teachers’ remuneration level still cannot reflect the labor value of teachers.
It is difficult to have a clear quantitative standard for the labor value of teachers, and it is impossible to calculate an accurate and reasonable number.
Some localities have issued policies that refer to national civil servants ‘wages, but in practice the differences between the two are still large.
Some teachers are psychologically unbalanced, and their work is not easier than civil servants, but their salaries are quite different, not to mention that some civil servants have a small amount of gray income in addition to their salaries.
So some teachers quit their jobs or transferred to other professions.
Therefore, due to the lack of local finances in some of the poorer regions, teachers’ salaries are still difficult to reach on time and in full, and some teachers choose to go to the southeast to replace the better places for employment.
These factors all have a certain effect on the stability of the teacher’s work mentality, and have a certain effect on the teacher’s psychological emotions, and there are some repeated emotions.
In addition, teachers’ own family factors, such as whether the family is harmonious, whether the marriage is happy, individual students’ excessive misconduct, and their own promotion opportunities and job prospects and other factors all have a certain impact on teachers’ mental health.
A hundred-year plan for problem solving is recommended, and education is the foundation.
The development of society and human progress are inseparable from the hard work of teachers.
The mental health of teachers will directly affect the healthy and harmonious development of human society.
As teachers themselves, schools and society should pay attention to certain aspects to reduce the occurrence of teachers’ mental health diseases?
The following briefly discusses how to reduce and overcome teachers ‘mental health problems from three aspects: Overcoming teachers’ mental health problems from the teacher’s own perspective first affects the teacher’s own physical health and directly affects his work and life.
Therefore, teachers themselves are the direct victims, and it is necessary to find ways to avoid mental health diseases.
Regulate and cure existing mental health problems.
Treating people and things with peace and optimism A good attitude that can make people feel happy is the key to doing a good job and being motivated.
As a teacher, we must first realize that anyone who works for others will encounter unpleasant things in work and study.
The reason is to adjust your mentality when encountering unpleasant things, first let yourself calm down and think carefully, and then make reasonable countermeasures to avoid excessive behavior, so as not to cause adverse effects.
Accurate and objective self-orientation is not good. Most of them are caused by high and far-reaching, and they are not reasonable enough.
Positioning yourself higher, the harder it is to achieve, and the disappointment you bring to yourself, leading to a bad mood.
It can be seen that accurate and objective self-positioning is very important to people’s mentality.
To see that a large number of teachers can become excellent teachers, after all, there are only a few famous teachers.
At least, he devoted his life in obscurity to ordinary jobs and remained an unknown teacher until his retirement.
It is right to work hard as a teacher. It is normal for you to have as much ability as you can to achieve your ideal value.
He is also one of thousands of ordinary teachers who are unknown.
Participating in physical exercise and pleasing body teacher’s work outside of work belongs to intense mental labor. Long-term work makes people physically and mentally tired, and produces anxiety and boredom.
Therefore, teachers must combine work with rest and take appropriate physical exercise to relieve the stress of work and release the unhappy mood at work.
In addition, participating in physical exercise can also strengthen the body, maintain sufficient energy, and resist physical diseases.
In addition, getting along well with colleagues, participating in social communication activities, and telling friends about unpleasant things can also relieve stress and achieve physical pleasure.
Overcoming schools from a school perspective should be more concerned about caring teachers.
As the direct leader of teachers, schools should pay more attention to their subordinates, fully trust them, understand them, respect them, and care about the teachers’ suffering.
The understanding and trust of school leaders can bring teachers to feel warm and valued, remove the kind of distress in their hearts, adjust their mentality, and work hard to repay the leadership’s knowledge.
Properly managing the relationship between schools and teachers can overcome the mental illness of teachers.
Evaluation system for outstanding teachers.
As a direct operator of teacher assessment, schools have the responsibility to improve the teacher assessment system.
Schools should study and formulate a teacher evaluation system that does not have too much pressure on teachers, but also can accurately assess teachers ‘work and stimulate teachers’ work enthusiasm.
Whether a teacher’s assessment system is good or bad, double-checking whether the work performance of teachers is good or bad, but also whether it can stimulate teachers’ work enthusiasm and work enthusiasm, is it conducive to the unity, health and harmony of the school teacher group.
Therefore, when formulating a teacher evaluation system, full consideration must be given to affirming the achievements of each person and the efforts made by each teacher in the work, including non-learning work performance.
The compulsory development of the assessment system should be positioned as “incentive + assessment”, that is, it is necessary to be able to check the teacher’s work performance and to cheer for each teacher.
Schools should increase the health of teachers. Where conditions permit, schools can set up teacher gyms; run mental health counseling offices, hire experts to conduct psychological counseling for teachers; and carry out teacher networking activities to enrich teachers’ amateur lives.Relieve teachers ‘work pressure and reduce or eliminate the occurrence of teachers’ mental health diseases.
Prefer it to peach and report it to Lee.
It is believed that the expenses that schools spend on teachers will be doubled.
Overcoming teachers ‘work from a social perspective is closely related to society. Teachers’ work directly faces the progress and development of society, and society in turn plays a role in the healthy and harmonious development of teachers.
Teachers’ job responsibilities and teachers’ development direction must be determined by the society’s expectations of teachers’ roles and the needs of teachers.
The society’s expectations of the role of teachers must be combined with theory and practice, otherwise teachers ‘work pressure will be increased, resulting in teachers’ psychological depression and even mental illness, which has the opposite effect.
Consider that teachers are ordinary people first, and like everyone else, have all the nature and needs of someone.
It is only because of the difference in division of labor that they become teachers.
Therefore, while the society demands the role of the teacher, it must also seriously consider the teacher’s suffering and understand the difficulties of being a teacher.
I think: The understanding and concern of society for teachers’ mental health is a good medicine, which can ensure the healthy development of teachers.
