Abstract PURPOSE: Studies including investigations by our group indicate a significantly strained health of school teachers. Only little is known about the influence of single parameters that may act as predictors of teachers' ill health. METHODS: By using stepwise regression, in a sample of N = 949 school teachers, we analyzed the correlation between personal and professional parameters on the one side and measures such as GHQ, MBI, and ERI on the other. RESULTS: We found a significant correlation of work place-related factors with parameters of ill health. Compared to all other factors considered, verbal insults by pupils had the strongest impact. Positive feedback by parents and pupils or support by colleagues and school heads had a significant protective influence. CONCLUSIONS: Our data demonstrate that interpersonal factors appear to play a prominent role with respect to both strain and protection of teachers' health.
