Whereas over 30 years of research demonstrates significant benefits for students from brief interventions in which personally controllable attributions for failure are encouraged (e.g., lack of effort vs. low ability; see Forsterling, 1985; Haynes et al., 2009), little research to date has evaluated the effects of Attributional Retraining (AR) for teachers. The present study addressed this research gap in examining the longitudinal benefits of a web-based, motivational program for teachers, based on attribution theory, on psychological and physical health. In the spring of 2013, 526 Canadian teachers completed an online questionnaire including baseline self-report measures of causal attributions, emotional exhaustion, and physical well-being. Immediately following was a series of brief readings summarizing (a) the content of AR interventions in prior empirical research with students, and (b) short segments from a published teacher handbook providing examples of in-class assessment and instruction methods that encourage adaptive, personally controllable attributions in students. ANCOVA analyses (controlling for age, gender, years of experience, grade level of instruction, baseline measures) on the same questionnaire completed six months later revealed statistically significant main effects of the AR intervention on each dependent measure. The present findings thus provide preliminary empirical support for the potential cognitive, emotional, and health benefits of informational, online, motivational programs for teachers in which research and advice concerning motivational topics are presented in an accessible manner.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/34758"/> <dc:contributor>Hall, Nathan C.</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-07-12T07:54:35Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Online motivational interventions : Promoting psychological and physical health in teachers</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Rahimi, Sonia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Götz, Thomas</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Wang, Hui</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Hall, Nathan C.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rahimi, Sonia</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Wang, Hui</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/31"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Frenzel, Anne C.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Götz, Thomas</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/31"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
