The source covers on the stress reduction on teachers using an inquiry-based technique. The authors of the article realized that there was a problem encountered by teachers as they carried out their day to day duties which caused them to have burnouts as well as affecting their mental wellness. They conducted research on teachers to identify how effective Enquiry-based stress reduction technique was on reducing these cases of burnout and emotional, mental load. The authors identified a gap in research where other researcher had carried out research on teachers but the idea to investigate the effects on mindfulness-stress based intervention. This created a gap in research which necessitated the need for the research. The participants of the study were teachers of a high school in Israel, and the chosen research design was the phenomenological analysis method (Lia, Inbal, Keren, Zehavit, & Shahar, 2017). From the research, the authors concluded that that Inquiry based stress reduction technique had an effect of reducing burnout in teachers.
Teachers sought to answer the question of whether an Inquiry-based stress mediation technique can have a positive effect on burnout. They used teachers as their research respondent. Throughout the research study, the author stuck by the questions as they tried to answer this research question, which was clearly formulated. They contributed significantly to the body of knowledge as previous researches have only studied burnout in teacher using different techniques other than the Inquiry-based technique. The authors chose a phenomenological analysis method, which was appropriate for the research study. They chose a sample size of 27 teachers from a high school in Israel, which was appropriate for the study as it was manageable (Lia, Inbal, Keren, Zehavit, & Shahar, 2017). The conclusions made from the research study were justified by the chosen results obtained from the study.
The research study is very rich in knowledge as it has widely covered the topic of stress and burnout among teacher. Previous researches conducted in the area of stress were too shallow hence, the study has filled the knowledge gap that was existing in this important area. The article is very useful for my future research in issues to do with stress and burnout as the literature review applied in the study are rich in knowledge. The results obtained from the study are also very relevant for any future study in this area. The phenomenological analysis method chosen for the study is also an efficient method for conducting research, especially when dealing with individual experience hence, it gave the best results for the study. I could use the same method when conducting research relating to individual experiences (Lia, Inbal, Keren, Zehavit, & Shahar, 2017). The article is also universal since cases of burnouts are universal among different professionals, not just in teachers. Therefore, the techniques can also be applied in various professional fields.
