Buy article


In this evaluation study, the impact of a one-term individual supervision for primary school teachers in Vienna was evaluated, using a mixed methods approach. The effects of supervision on health-related variables were examined in a quasi-experimental design and the practical aspects of supervision were discussed in a focus group with supervisors. The test results consistently point to the positive effects of supervision. Supervision is seen as a support for teachers to reflect their working life regularly with a preventive and health-promoting effect. The results of this study correspond to the positive effects of supervision described in the literature.
