Abstract
The present study examines the effect of a nine-hour Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) intervention for teachers who experience stress.

The ACT condition received three three-hour sessions of ACT over a six-week period, and the control group received a three-hour stress lecture at one occasion. At a follow-up four-weeks after completed intervention, ACT participants showed significant in-group differences on stress, psychological flexibility, general health, and burnout. At a between group comparison, only psychological flexibility was significantly enhanced at the follow-up. Discussion... (More)
