Rationale/Background
Teachers are used to having to ‘cope’ on a daily basis - they work in a challenging, but rewarding profession, where their own needs can come second to those of their students. Classroom life has a uniquely stressful nature. It has been affirmed by studies that the human consequences of excessive stress on teachers are serious and wide-ranging. They can include not only physical symptoms but also mental health issues. While there is a steadily developing body of academic literature into the causes, levels and results of stress among teachers, there is little research carried out into interventions intended to tackle the problem. The researcher thinks and feels that something can be done to help teachers cope with the crisis brought about by the nature of their job and at the same time help them cope with their own personal crisis that comes with being in this stage called midlife. People often look for a list of signs to validate if a midlife crisis is at hand. The experience is a combination of feelings, events and physical changes that indicate a transformation is at hand. The final proof often occurs in retrospect after a person accepts, faces, and embraces who he is and what he has, usually by entering a spiritual journey and coming to terms with new life patterns. The researcher
