How important is self-care for school personnel? This study investigated the relationship between stress and job satisfaction in school personnel, and the role of self-care in mediating the potentially negative effects of stress on job satisfaction. We will discuss the sources of stress affecting school personnel and the implications for self-care in the poster presentation. Participants will learn the definition(s) of self-care, importance of self-care, and practices that promote self-care among school personnel.
