CARLOTTO, Mary Sandra et al. Occupational stressors and coping strategies. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.1, pp. 92-105. ISSN 2359-0769.

The present study had as objective to know the experience of the occupational stressors and coping strategies used from the perspective of the teachers. Eight female teachers from two municipal public schools of a city in the metropolitan region of Porto Alegre, RS, participated in the study. As a data collection instrument, the journal method was used in its qualitative modality, structured in two thematic axes established a priori: stressors and coping strategies used. The records were analyzed using the categorical-thematic content analysis technique. As results, five stressors of a psychosocial nature were identified: teacher-student relationship; lack of support from student relatives; paper overload; reconciling work-family and reconciling work-life. The coping strategies referred to were those focused on emotion and avoidance.

Keywords : occupational stress; coping strategies; teachers.
