The aim of the current study is to investigate the extent to which irrational…

We also explored the possible bidirectional relations between school satisfaction and social coping behaviors. Four types of social coping behaviors in peer conflict contexts…

Midwestern K-11 teachers (n = 96) rated students (n =…

Using a discrete choice experiment with a sample of general education elementary teachers (N = 230), we examined (a)…
