Examining Primary School Teachers' Coping Styles with Stress According to Different Variables

Bu araştırma, ilköğretim kurumu öğretmenlerinin stresle başa çıkma tarzlarının cinsiyet, branş, yaş ve toplam mesleki kıdem gibi demografik değişkenler açısından incelenmesini amaçlamaktadır. Araştırmaya Ankara ilinde bulunan 14 ilköğretim kurumunda görevli toplam 368 öğretmen katılmıştır. Araştırma verilerinin toplanmasında "Stresle Başa Çıkma Ölçeği" kullanılmıştır. Araştırma verilerinin analizinde bağımsız gruplar için t-testi ve tek yönlü ANOVA kullanılmıştır. Araştırma sonuçları öğretmenlerin kendine güvenli ve iyimser başa çıkma tarzlarını diğerlerine göre daha fazla kullandıklarını göstermektedir. Bununla birlikte araştırma sonuçları, öğretmenlerin stresle başa çıkma tarzlarına ilişkin algılarının kendine güvenli tarz boyutunda cinsiyet değişkenine göre, iyimser tarz boyutunda yaş ve mesleki kıdem değişkenlerine göre anlamlı bir biçimde farklılaştığını göstermektedir.
