Cite item


The urgency of the problem in the present study is associated with dramatic changes in the system of contemporary Russian education, which, on the one hand, are positive, and on the other contribute to emotional stress. Teacher, experiencing a state of stress, negatively affects students, transferring their negative emotions and often exerting a negative impact. Even those teachers who try to resist are also prone to burnout and psychosomatic diseases in these conditions. The article is devoted to the identification and analysis of cognitive and emotional changes of teachers, and their correlation with nosological form of cardiovascular disease, identifying the features of psychological, emotional states depending on earlier diagnosis. Mental status of the teacher is reflected in his personality changes in behaviour. The materials are based on the results of studies of physical well-being of teachers and its impact on the quality of the solution of pedagogical tasks. The study was conducted on the basis of the therapeutic department of the polyclinic № 1 in Togliatti. Experimental data confirm that stressful situations characteristic of the educational activities provoke diseases, which are a response to external negative impacts.
